We attended the Open House of the Fayette County Museum and we were happy to see the renovations which had been completed. Several people commented that it was a perfect day and I kept reciting from James Russell Lowell's poem "What Is So Rare As A Day In June":
"AND what is so rare as a day in June,
Then, if ever, come perfect days."
The meal was catered, but to me, the highlight of the meal was the cookies which had been provided by committee members. There was an array of cookies including snickerdoodles, thumbprint cookies, fruit bars and brownies. I consider myself a connoisseur of brownies. I bake them from scratch. I turned to one of the Board members and asked who had provided the brownies. She pointed to the person sitting across from me. I said, "Your brownies are quite good." She thanked me and then I added, "AND I'm a brownie connoisseur." The brownie baker had a delightful laugh as she told me, "They're made from Kroger's Double Chocolate Brownie MIX!"
So much for my being a CONNOISSEUR.
One can use the "World's Best Brownie Recipe" or obviously, just use the Kroger box mix!
