Syracuse is currently in the throes of its first big snow storm. I think we're pushing twenty inches at this point, with more expected before the week is through. This moves us into first place, I believe, and is a healthy start toward our season average of ten feet.
It is not enough to close the city; it's really just enough to slow it down a bit. It took me an hour to get home from work last night, for example. Of course, my commute did include an unsuccessful errand in search of a new traction drive cable for our snow thrower. By the time I made it through the door, I'd had just about enough. Unfortunately, it turns out you really need the traction drive cable and there was much shoveling to be done.
My solution? Really good, really indulgent, really easy baked goods. Here's how:
1) Make a batch of box-mix brownie batter. Spread in pan.
2) Add huge blobs of peanut butter directly from the jar. Swirl slightly.
3) Bake according to package directions, minus about 10 minutes.
