Was the 2703 mile drive worth it? Yes.
It took the instant pot, the convection oven and all three burners, but we got er done.
Stacia and I worked out a new brownie recipe which she baked for dessert. It was a hit. We'll tweak it and do it again to make sure it wasn't a fluke and then; if we still like it best, post it to the blog and remove all other brownie recipes. I think we can make these blondies too....hmm.....probably could have made these much earlier if we'd just thought to take our favorite blondie recipe and add chocolate. 🐽(Can the pig snout be my emoji for ::snort::???)
Because some will wonder - we had Beef Stroganoff (Mushroom for me), corn, kale salad, garlic bread and brownies.
