Call Me the Queen of Easy

Frozen brownies in a box. Really. Seriously. Really.

And I love this, instruction number two on the back begins with "Remove brownies from cardboard box . . ." Target markets?

1) Those high enough to actually eat the box along with the brownies;

2) Incredibly inexperienced bakers unaware that cardboard boxes do not fare well inside ovens; and

3) Sleep-deprived mommies like me likely to toss the entire thing in the oven before reading the directions.

Step five troubles me though, "Allow to cool for about 5 minutes." Are you kidding me? Five whole minutes? By then I will have already filled up on Pop Tarts and Twinkies.

We got a frozen pizza that said to remove the plastic wrap before baking. You know all these directions came about because somebody already did it. (And it well may have been a sleep-deprived Mom - I myself have been sleep-deprived now since late 2003, and the end is not in sight. This is one of many reasons I don't go near the stove.)

Ha ha ha ha, we would probably be safer if I didn't go near the stove either. Sometimes I just can't resist the urge to bake though, even if it's just frozen brownies from a box.
