Whole Paycheck

Sara went to Whole Foods to pick up a little treat for us to eat while vegging out to TV one night. I gave her full power of purchase, which is always dangerous. She came back very proud of herself, saying,"Ever since I had seen these brownies I wanted to try them. I mean, what do $13 brownies taste like?" (This is not a direct quote, merely something I made up, but it does capture the gist.)

She made the brownies. On the first night we ate them, and I have to say that they tasted like $7 brownies, max. BUT, it says very clearly on the box that best results are attained when you cook them and let them sit overnight before eating them. Who does that? I guess people who make $13 brownies as a normal daily activity.

Anyway, we exercized maximum restraint and did not eat the whole batch in one go. Good work! The next day, I gave the $13 brownies a second taste test. My god, they did taste like they were worth $13! Moist, smooth, with chunks of dark chocolate bliss.

Sara still claims that they are at most $11 brownies, but I felt we got our money's worth, if only in entertainment value.
