I blame my friends. That’s right, I blame them for this habit of mine – ours. But I suppose that’s okay, right? I mean, there’s not all that much wrong with a midnight snack . . . especially when it’s freshly baked!
I love our late night baking (even when that usually means dumping brownie mix into a bowl, whipping it with some eggs, throwing it in the oven, and then returning to the episode of Law and Order: SVU that we’re watching). And I love being able to enjoy the smell coming from the oven before the brownies are ready to be eaten. I even love the anticipation of waiting for them to cool down just enough so that we don’t have to worry about burning our mouths off on piping hot brownies.
I just love the tradition. It’s perfect.
