a short saturday
posted by soe 3:48 am

Apparently the afterthought portion of last night’s post (the line where I wrote I needed some sleep during the holidays) was an understatement. I didn’t truly appreciate the sentiment until after I woke up this afternoon at nearly two!

I made the most of the rest of the day, though. I dropped off Toys for Tots at the local fire house, stopped by the garden (chard is the only thing left; the peppers that were too small to pick a couple weeks back were still small — and dead, to boot) and the library, and ran by Trader Joe’s for a few supplies.

I came home and baked a batch of brownies that elicited rave reviews, although, as usual with my stove and brownies, I had to add more than 15 extra minutes to the cooking time. (I had a large bar of squares of dark chocolate and used six with the butter. I then opted for semi-sweet chips mixed in with the berries. Oh, and I ran out of white flour and finished the cup off with a few tablespoons of whole wheat.)

And then we headed off to a party, where I got the chance to spend a Saturday night with some of our favorite D.C. folks. It was great!

All in all, a nice way to spend a short Saturday during a busy time of the year.
