This weekend we has a last minute get together with a few of the other couples in the building for what was supposed to be a poker night for the boys and a wine night for the girls! No cards were ever brought out.. the boys made duck and bao, the girls brought desserts, and we all ended up in a circle scream-singing lyrics to old 90’s rap songs for the better portion of the night. AMAZING.
Since we didn’t have time to go grab dessert – I decided to make brownies! And of course I had to find a way to oil them up. PEPPERMINT. Now, I don’t want you to think that I was unable to run to the store but totally had time to make brownies from scratch.. false. I grabbed a brownie box and added two drops of peppermint oil. Big hit. I also didn’t have time to take photos (thank goodness, since the brownies were baked in a circle cake tin – not the prettiest brownies) so here is a photo of brownies to make you hungry and some info about the amazingness of peppermint! If you want to try this “recipe” Peppermint has 100 drops in a bottle that will make over 50 brownie batches! Plus there are 1000 other uses for peppermint, some of which I’m sure don’t involve food.. but it is so so delicious!
