Tonight I tried to make some brownies in honor of Ru coming in to town. They were just from a box, so it didn't require much effort on my part. My kitchen was smelling wonderful. The timer went off, and I expected to open the oven door to perfectly gooey brownies. Instead, I found a square pan of chocolate with a layer of oil boiling on top. Apparently, I forgot to mix in the eggs! Leave it to me to forget one of three required ingredients in a pre-mixed recipe and screw it up! The whole oil brownie brick went straight into the garbage.
