These are the fudgy brownies you have been craving. With just a hint of smooth almond Amaretto poking through, these are simply perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
As the days grow longer, I am still daydreaming of far off places. It seems I have a serious case of wanderlust. That, or I just really like being outside. Warmer weather means the shift in work / play balance as my bike and running shoes are a huge distraction to the office space.
It seems a good run or a long bike ride can cure the brain of things. It's a mental palate cleanser. I start, my heart pounding with the surge of activity, thinking of return emails and the eternal to-dos. Then my brain takes over. Shutting off the unnecessary parts that are churning out the ever present self-inflicted to do's and putting me in auto-pilot. Another hill came and went and the world is fresh. The views are wonderful and all that there is to think about is the next ascent.
It makes the work day so much better. I mean, when your legs are fall out from under you dead, it certainly makes sitting on your tush to get some of those to-do's done. And that's exactly what sparked this post. Truth, the recipe and images were ready this morning, but I just stared at the screen. All that I had was, 'yay, brownies'. And, yes, yay - brownies! Because I earned them!
