A cold, drizzly October day calls for one thing – a pan of brownies. Okay, two things – a pan of brownies and a few cups of coffee (or tea). After adding a bajillion new books to my Goodreads to-read list, I set about making these Chocolate Zucchini Brownies. I’ve been craving chocolate (when don’t I crave chocolate?) and it’s getting a bit chilly for ice cream, and lately I’ve eaten more than my fair share of chocolate chips straight from the bag. So brownies it is. I haven’t cut into them yet – any minute now – but I’m looking forward to it.
One of my favorite things about living here is that the mail carrier goes down the other side of the street first, so if I see the truck go past, I know I have a few minutes to finish up a letter, find that DVD that needs to go back, dig out the stamps, find my shoes, etc. and still get it into the box in time. This is the life, I tell you.
I’m about to start listening to the new Kate Atkinson – whee! And I have a pile of YA books that are calling my name. Plus all those picture books to review. It’s like a book orgy around here.
