When my husband walked in the door an hour early, I gave him a blank stare. Had I forgotten something?
Oh, no...the cookie tray I volunteered for a meeting last night!
He offered to pick something up, but I raced to the pantry. With basic ingredients, I can pull together these cocoa powder brownies and sugar cookies with 15 minutes of measuring and mixing.
While the brownies baked, I polished a silver tray and piled the last of our strawberries in a bowl for color.
Pepperidge Farm might have tasted better, but I'm always glad to save our family (and our wallet) from a last minute trip to Kroger!
