Bangalore weather currently is what dreams are made of. Rain, slight chill in the air and dreamy clouds. While dreams can be made of this, it is certainly horrible for work. I have had deadlines staring at me all day long but I have been turning my face away from them, pretending to be an ostrich, thinking if I look at my kindle and not laptop, the deadlines may be will go away?
And then in a fit of motivation and a severe chocolate craving I felt like baking, gooey rich chocolate brownies. After trying to ignore that wish for a good one hour and trying to focus on work (ok honest I tried before the kindle made its way to my hands), I gave up started collecting ingredients. You see once in a while I do this mis-en-place rest of the times I am running collecting them after half the steps are done. So I digress, while putting together the ingredients I found there is NO BUTTER at home. So now the choice was no brownies, drive to the shop or figure out something. And at a whim I decided to bake brownies with olive oil and oh god, not praising myself but goodness how delicious they are. They are so good that they got me on to the laptop to be blogged about ASAP. Make them and you can thank me later.
