Why am I baking at this hour?

Why? Because I sat down when I got home from Stitch 'n' Bitch and promptly fell asleep on the sofa. When I woke up, at 3am, I realized that I still hadn't made a dessert for tomorrow's (well, today's) Dessert Day* at work. I debated my two dessert choices--brownies or Chocomole. It was 3am--I took the easy way out (and Ellen's advice) and made brownies. They smell lovely. I didn't have vegetable oil so I had to use the Coconut oil that I bought for the (not so) failed Chocomole I made yesterday. I'd tell you how they taste but I already brushed my teeth.

Now, about that Chocomole--maybe I didn't fail after all. I put the bitter batch in the fridge last night with the intention of taking it to work for some brave souls to taste. I forgot it. So, after I put the brownies in the oven, and before I brushed my teeth, I tasted it again. It wasn't bitter anymore. It was (and still is--I didn't eat it all) pretty darn good and really rich. Like super rich. I'm still serving up the brownies for Dessert Day, but I'm taking the Chocomole for Terry and Truitt to taste. Plus I still have avocados left so I can make more.

*Our organization is launching a Health & Fitness Campaign next week. Some of our staff thought it would be great to have one last hurrah before all the healthy eating.

Appropo of nothing--OMG! The rollerskating guitar guy from Venice Beach is in the Toyota of Pasadena commercial. I'm willing to bet that guy makes more money a year than I do. I should have learned to play the guitar.

And spellcheck offered "chuckhole" as an alternative for Chocomole. What the hell is a chuckhole? It sounds dirty.

Yayyy! Brownies! I'll bet they're delicious!

Remember, you can always use that leftover avocado as a face mask! Perfect for Halloween!
