something you just must know

I've been boring myself to tears with my own blogging lately, I can't imagine how you must feel. So, I've started brainstorming about things to write about (toast? chickens in the city? the old lady who offered Adam a dollar to take her groceries into her house and he almost turned her down because he thought she was asking for money, and then when he realized his mistake and saw the inside of her sad lonely house, how he almost cried right there?). I make lists...someday i'll get them all up in here.

But for now, I really feel that you need to have this most amazing brownie recipe. I got it from my dad, but I'm not sure where it originated. He used to make them at night and put them in our lunches, and I remember calling them "Daddy Brownies", even though we never really called him Daddy.

World's Best and Most Foolproof Brownies; Your Friends Will Thank You

1 stick butter or margarine
2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 cup sugar (or less. i often use less)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
3/4 c. flour

Melt butter and chocolate over med. heat in a heavy bottom saucepan. Once melted, remove from heat. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour.
Bake at 350 in a 9x9 baking dish for 20-25 minutes depending on how gooey you like them.

Eat as soon as you can--by which I mean as soon as you can without scalding the roof of your mouth. Then, after they have cooled a bit, have another. Then have one for breakfast.

You are welcome.
