I never understood people when they would exclaim 'he's just so cute I want to eat him up!' It's just weird.
Now I totally get it.
Those people gave up sweets for lent and have a nephew that looks like this.
I'm going to eat him.
Lent is always something I have participated in since I was a kid, but I would always do it halfway. I would give up all ice cream except chocolate or all candy except chocolate or all chocolate except dark chocolate...do you see a pattern?
So this year I bit the bullet and gave up ALL sweets. I'm crazy and I know it. It's been challenging for me...to say the least...but this is the first year I haven't replaced the behavior with something else.
Well maybe snuggling my nephew, but that is a positive behavior!
So today I'm being a little masochistic and posting a brownie recipe. Fear not - I actually made these the Sunday before lent started. Enough time to stuff my face with a few and then pawn them off on my co-workers and boyfriend.
