Now on the third day of unrelenting rain, I started developing a certain sympathy for Noah and his ark of wildlife. Luckily, my three year old took that waterlogged feeling and ran in a different direction: he proposed we have a birthday party for his pirate. Ahoy, a celebration!
Since we're gluten- and sugar-free, we decided the pirate would appreciate some almond butter brownies. We'd made these before and found them quite delicious, but they always kind of deflated as they cooled. Hoping for fluffier brownies, we added two more eggs.
This did the trick! The pirate enjoyed his booty and we did, too. A good time was had by all. Aarg!
