I'm not gonna lie, I was reaaally excited about my greedy gobbler Riva post yesterday. As soon as my friend Hank logged on to AIM yesterday, I immediately bombarded him with the following instant message.
"I posted about Riva!"
He promptly signed off.
Approximately an hour and a half later, I tried again.
I lured him in with an engaging opener about churros (specifically Xooro that will be opening a location on Melrose in WeHo this coming Monday), and then I brought it up again.
"Did you read my Riva post?"
"Yes." He responded. "I thought it was too long, but liked seeing the tasty pizza."
I immediately balked at his criticism -- too long? Nobody ever critisized Tolstoy for Anna Karenina's length!
"Well there was a lot of food to discuss!" I protested. "I couldn't exactly cut out a course!"
"I think you need to make harder choices about which things are the most important." He clarified.
"But all the food was important. It would be like leaving out words in a sentence. Or notes in a symphony. Or not wearing pants!" I typed back, desperately trying to prove him wrong.
At this juncture, the conversation went off on a completely unrelated tangent, but his words did linger in the back of my head for the rest of the day. I reviewed my most recent posts and realized that I have become a bit overly verboise in my enthusiasm to describe every inch of my dining experiences. While rambling is one of my favorite pasttimes, it isn't much fun for the person on the other end of the rambling.
Today, I am going to keep things short. There isn't really anything for me to prattle on about with regards to this recipe for peanut butter brownies that I found on Two Peas and Their Pod. They are fudgy, but not overly dense, and so chock full of peanut butter goodness that I almost developed a nut allergy ingesting one.
Well, not really. I'm not sure how that could be possible, but the point is that they are really peanut buttery and I'd probably cut the pb back a bit if/when I make these again. Either way, they are good because they have chocolate and sugar and mini peanut butter cups in them and those things generally go well together. Especially when smothered in vanilla ice cream.
