My husband's mum organised a huge family reunion over the weekend and as my contribution, I brought coleslaw and baked confections starring my old friend, chocolate.
Where chocolate's involved, I bring it, and I bring it hard. I made FOUR batches of chocolate chip brownies and a 9" x 13" pan of sour cream chocolate chip coffee cake. Did I get to bring any of this loveliness home? That's a big, fat nope. My mum-in-law was responsible for squirreling away most of the leftovers to take home, and today informed me that she thoroughly enjoyed it. Hmph.
Oh and I had to tell this story -- at the reunion, my mum-in-law grabbed my arm and dragged me across the hall to meet her cousin who's pregnant. She pointed at her burgeoning belly and exclaimed, "What's in her belly, I want that!". I suppose she was hoping with the close proximity that I'd catch baby or something. What a big silly.
