May I just jump right into it by stating that these are the best darn brownies I’ve ever made? Would that be alright with everyone? There is no sense in beating around the bush here. These beer, pumpkin and gingerbread brownies are amazing. I may have mentioned in blog posts past that I don’t always get along with brownies and sheet cakes. I don’t know if it’s still my adjusting to living at a higher altitude or what. Brownies are a struggle for me. They either need to be a super fudgy brownie or brownie cups cooked in mini cupcake pans for it actually to work out for me. I have found that I am completely ok with this. I prefer a fudge brownie to a cake-like brownie, so as a result, these brownies are SUPER fudgy. They are loaded with some of my favorite ingredients: pumpkin ale, ginger, chocolate and pumpkin. I mean how can you go wrong with that combination of flavors!?
I really hope that everyone is having a fabulous weekend and you are soaking up as much relaxation time as possible. I don’t know about you guys, but I find it very hard to relax when the weekend comes around.
Maybe it’s because the week is so busy, busy and I am normally working until 8 – 9pm at night. Quickly, after I stop working, I’m off to bed. Don’t judge me. I’m totally a grandma and go to bed around 9. I’m not saying that I necessary FALL ASLEEP at this time, but I’m in bed all the same.
Once the weekend rolls around I feel like I need to keep working, and a lot of the time I do. This weekend I have attempted to relax. It hasn’t really worked out. Do you guys ever feel like you have a gazillion things to do and you just … can … not … catch … up? I honestly think that I “make-up” new things for to keep me busy … just to, ya know … keep me busy.
Any tips you guys have in relaxation techniques, I’m all ears. In the meantime, I will stuff my face with brownies while I fold my unending pile of laundry.
