Take it from me

 

When they tell you to cut brownies with a plastic knife…

to make them all presentable like

you know

instead of looking like something I planted my vegetable garden in…

 

…they LIE!

 

 

Despite my near flawless record for “cooking by neighbor notification”

(ie: when the smoke alarm freaks out the horses next door and the owners come tell me),

I don’t mess around with brownies.

 

 

So I tried my darndest to follow those display-worthy serving tips.

I removed the brownies from the oven (without burning myself, hallelujah!), and set to work cutting neat rows with tiny sawing motions of the prescribed plastic knife.

What dingdong waits for a brownie to cool off before dishing it out?

The ice cream won’t get soft otherwise.

 

Stoopid diet wasn’t working anyway.

So funny! I love that you link back to all your previous posts. I feel like I'm still catching up on one a great tv show. Your family makes me laugh and want to fly out to your part of the country and hang out with you for a day or five. :)

When I saw your picture of the knife on the blog feed (smaller picture,) it looked like a pregnancy test, lol! I agree...who waits for brownies to be cool first before cutting and eating?!? Warm brownies are one of my top five things to eat in the whole world!

My first thought was... don't you have the knife upside down? And I agree, hot brownies are the best. Why wait!

Foursons said...

I thought the same thing as Robin! Hahahaha. I don't wait for the brownies to cool either. Does anyone?

Hahaha, that happened to me, too! I love my brownies fresh from the oven and I don't wait for them to cool before cutting them either.

Lol! Yes who would wait for brownies to cool! They are so much better all warm and gooey! Even still that must have been one cheap plastic knife!

Haha! Brownies are just as good when they are a crumbly, blobby mess!
