There are several men in our community, my husband and son included, that have a “Guys Night CookOUT” on Wednesday nights. It’s usually at the “White House”, an unoccupied house owned by our friends, Bill and Ann. However, this week they had it here at the farm. I would love to be a fly on the wall to hear the man gossip at these events!
I have been itching to bake. So, even though I usually take advantage of Wednesday nights and I do not cook…I decided to bake some brownies for the guys. I was able to throw these easy Saucepan Brownies together fast and they were delicious. Yes, I did have a warm brownie with a glass of extra cold milk before sending them out to be devoured by the guys!
