21º Heat Wave! ~ Pretentious King ~ Blonde Brownies

Good 21º morning. Ahhhh the glory of the frozen tundra**...
Big Al Bore...... Global F**king Warming MyAss. Just ask folks around here!!


**Tundra is the coldest of all the biomes. It is noted for its frost-molded landscapes, extremely low temperatures, little precipitation, poor nutrients, and short growing seasons. Dead organic material functions as a nutrient pool. The two major nutrients are nitrogen and phosphorus. Nitrogen is created by biological fixation, and phosphorus is created by precipitation.
Characteristics of tundra include:

  1. Extremely cold climate
  2. Low biotic diversity
  3. Simple vegetation structure
  4. Limitation of drainage
  5. Short season of growth and reproduction
  6. Energy and nutrients in the form of dead organic material
  7. Large population oscillations

January 22nd


1 1/3 stick butter, melted
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
1 c. chopped pecans
1 (6 oz.) pkg. butterscotch morsels

In medium bowl, stir first eight ingredients until blended well. Spread into greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Sprinkle morsels over dough. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Cut into squares while warm.
(or use chocolate chips instead of butterscotch!) National Blonde Brownie Day is a special day that is set aside to bake and eat blonde brownies. What's a blonde brownie, you ask? Well, as their name implies, traditional brownies are a dark brown. To make blonde brownies, light brown sugar is used in the recipe in place of dark brown chocolate. On National Blonde Brownie Day, its your right and responsibility to bake blonde brownies, and to eat them. If you don't have time to bake today, buy some and eat a few extra blonde brownies.
