All this celebrating has been hard to keep up with lately…. too much of a good thing?
January 22nd was National Blonde Brownie Day.
It’s basically a white, chocolate-less, unimpressive brownie. It’s pretty much like replacing Obama with Trump in so many ways. I really don’t grasp it as something you would want to do to a country let alone a brownie.
Alas I made them anyway.
- 3/4 cup of butter
- 1 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of vanilla
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 2 1/2 cups of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- white chocolate chips
Bake for about 30 minutes at 350.
I wouldn’t say they were as tasteless as Donald, but they certainly weren’t as rich. Sad.
Making these mediocre dessert bars, watching Team Foxcatcher and then Foxcatcher (fucking rich old white men are fucking insane not eccentric – Robert Durst, Donald, etc, can we just learn this soon, please??) while it rained buckets outside was pretty much all I did this particular day.
If a blogger bakes white power brownies alone in her house with her deaf dog, is it really a celebration?
Thought to ponder
Tomorrow – National Pie Day! National Handwriting Day!
