The smell of Christmas!

Yes, the smell of Christmas. I've got mint, Gherodelli brownies in the oven. When those come out, rolls go in so we can have pulled pork bbq for dinner. The house smells wonderful as the brownies will be out in a moment or two.

The starts of our mint brownies. We use Ghirardelli because they're
really good. Picked up mint-patties as well for the brownies.
Prepare the batter and pan as directed.

Poured about half the batter into a prepared pan.

25 mints, unwrapped and placed in the batter.
In case you are wondering, this is an 8" x 8" pan.
The remaining batter was poured in and spread out.
Bake as directed.

45 minutes later and the brownies are ready. Bet
you wish your computer was scratch and sniff now.

Today wasn't just baking. We also went to see a play at George Mason University; it was "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe". It was very nicely done. Tomorrow we go back to see "The Christmas Carol".
