Perhaps you can help me out with a simple math calculation? 12 divided by four equals three… Or am I mistaken? No, I’m pretty certain that’s right. So my question is, where did two out of my three brownies disappear to?!
I ordered a box of Gower Cottage Brownies. They arrived a few days later, beautifully wrapped and just waiting to be devoured. Scrumptious! Well, I’m a family of four (well, make that eight, including hamsters and dogs but they’re not allowed chocolate!) so I calculated that to be three brownies each!
I enjoyed my first with a cup of green tea. It was divine! The flavour lingered, the texture just perfect and the overall experience… brownie heaven!
I returned to the box the very next day…. EMPTY! Interestingly – no one is admitting to the disappearance of my two other Brownies! The investigation is under way… Any suggestions!?
To be fair I’m normally the guilty culprit of consuming the biscuits, chocolate and all things delicious in our home before everyone else. So much so that biscuits are hidden away in the most obscure of places including the back of shelves, behind books and even in the bathroom cupboard and sock draw! I can’t be trusted when biscuits and cakes are around so you’ll appreciate there was little sympathy when I complained at the disappearance of my two remaining allocated brownies!
Worry not, there is a solution. I’ve ordered more! This time I’ve opted for Walnut and I will duly inform my children (prime suspects) they won’t like them (although I’m very confident they’ll adore them – the balance of walnut is just perfect) so I’ll order the original variety next time for them.
I hope to be back on air very soon. Many, many thanks to everyone who has been in touch. I love hearing from you in the comments section below or on Twitter. I’m @mecharliebrook.
I thought I’d round off this week’s blog with a recent snap of one of my Cairns. I love the ‘who me?’ look on her face. I took the photo after a much needed bath! Enough said.
Take care… I’m on the hunt now for chocolate, biscuits and crisps… and planning a perfect hiding place for my Gower Cottage Brownies!!
