Mexican Brownies

I’m weird.

And despite my weirdness, you still choose to visit my little blog.

Or perhaps you stop by because of my weirdness.

Either way, I’d like to say thanks.

Thanks for hanging out with me. Thanks for letting me talk about Doctor Who, food, and my kids waaaaay more than you probably care to hear. Thanks for letting me be completely self-indulgent. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

So, back to me being weird.

There are times when I will burst out laughing at something that happened a few days or even a few weeks earlier. Do you ever do that? Then people around you just give you a look. Sometimes with one eyebrow raised. You know they’re thinking, “What a weirdo. She’s either high or delirious. Maybe a bit of both.”

Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this. Please tell me that you are also in the I-can’t-stop-laughing-at-something-that-happened-weeks ago-and-everyone-around-me-thinks-I’m-crazy club. Awesome. We should totally come up with a secret handshake and get buttons made.

Sometimes I wish I could reach through the computer screen and give you some of my baked goods. I know. That’s a bit weird. But then I could share some of these with you.

Mexican brownies.

Fudgy Mexican brownies.

Topped with some Dulce de Leche ice cream.

Muy delicioso!
