Bait and Switch

Those of you who are also my husband's readers will know that we at the Furious house take full advantage of our public library. In addition to the books, movies and cds we also rent magazines. We could pretend we are doing it to reduce our carbon footprint but in reality we do it so that Mr Furious and I won't kill each other! We both have a thing for the glossy (or even better... matte) finish of a high (or low!) end magazine and at one point had close to 20 subscriptions. We are both also hoarders and so you can see where this is all going.. I didn't want to throw out my Martha's and he didn't want to toss his mags either. Now we mostly "borrow" our magazines and no longer have to fight over our basement shelf space. So I was delighted when Mr Furious came home with this little baby last night and it is the first thing I picked up this morning.

Now I was getting very excited, you can see that it looks like those might be delicious looking cheesecake brownies. Where? you ask... Oh behind all those library stickers. And you see where it says "OWNIE INTS" I'm pretty sure under the sticker lies a B and an R. I'm not sure what comes before the "ints" maybe an H or a P and an O? Yeah you're catching on now... its kind of like playing Wheel of Fortune... only you don't win anything. So I scour the magazine for those brownies. Where the hell are they?!? Maybe those aren't brownies? They look like brownies.... I open the table of contents and sure enough page 44 "How to with Allie - brownies". Page 44.... hmmm.. page 40... turn page, ad, ad, ad,turn page, mother fucking 54!!!! Goddammit where are my brownies!?! Do NOT even tell me some "previous" reader absconded with the brownie recipe!! Goddamn library!!!!

I have this one with the "ownie" recipe in tact if you want to borrow it.
