This brownie must be shared with the world.
To look at, I mean, not to eat. No, this sucker is mine. It may take a few days, but I’m gonna get it all in my belly one way or another. I am a tigress and it is my wounded antelope.
But no, I just wanted to share this.
This brownie came from Afternoon Delight, my current favorite brunch place in Ann Arbor. Why are they my favorite? Two words: frozen yogurt. Two more words: For breakfast. Two more words: That’s right.
Today is the first day of the fall semester at the university at which I work, and for my department, as well as most others, it’s…well, a crazy day. To top it all off, the heavens are having a serious plumbing problem and it has been raining pretty consistently all day. So already we’re off to a bad start.
And then my friend Brian walks in with three of these things, for me and two of my coworkers. And the skies opened, the angels sang. The peasants rejoiced.
I don’t know if, in that picture up there, you really get the full measure of just how massive this brownie is. So to give you a sense of it, here’s the brownie standing next to a goomba:
Anyway, just thought I’d share, and now that you’re all nice and drooly, I’m gonna take my brownie over in the corner and nibble. Hope your day is good, and filled with chocolates.
Are you going to turn into a Gollum?
i hope not, but if i did, the brownie is still worth it
So funny, Lauren… I just saw you tweeting about this, and wondered what it looked like. I haven’t had the brownies from AD before, but I LOVE the muffins. Especially peach… no, blueberry… no, peach. Oh! And their grilled cornbread on weekends.
Hope work goes okay. The weather really DOES suck today, doesn’t it?
the brownies are worth a try, but I definitely recommend either sharing one with someone, or cutting it into smaller pieces and having it over a long period. I’ve managed to get about a third of the way through this one and I am almost chocolated out for the afternoon. And that’s crazy talk coming from me.
I haven’t tried AD’s grilled cornbread, but I’m with you on the muffins. Although I still stand by my menu favorite: the berry patch.
