Trashy Trash Can BrowniesPosted: July 30, 2010
Remember my big plans to whip up a dazzling, healthy contribution for my company potluck?
They flew out the window yesterday around 6 pm when I stood in the aisles of Publix, still no idea of what I wanted to make and even less of an idea what I could actually con my health-food-averse coworkers and students into actually eating. The arm-length To Do List for the evening may have also had something to do with it.
I defaulted. Cheated, even.
Thankfully, Betty Crocker’s got my back.
You can’t tell me that you didn’t love Trash Can Sundaes as a kid. I always jumped at the gummy worm and Oreo-laden bowl ‘o sugar…hence my executive decision to make Trash Can Brownies!
Gee, how did I manage to purchase an opened and partially-eaten bag of gummy worms? I really should be more careful 😉
Gummy worms, Oreo “dirt”, and Reese’s Pieces “rocks”.
For a brief second I felt a bit of guilt for copping out with such a trashy treat from a box, but hell, they’re cute, tasty, and I know they’ll get eaten.
I’m off to to the picnic…thank goodness it’s the last day of the summer program! I’ve got a glorious two weeks off without a kid in sight, and I’m driving home right after work to spend it with my family and old friends! See ya soon!
