Last week, Jannie proclaimed Christmas her baking season. Jannie is in our class with Shawn’s Archery and she’s been there from the get go. Really, I think she was the first person to break the ice with everybody.
Baking season? I approve but I can’t really relate, as I don’t cook. Not even a little. (The fire department might have been here when I cooked for myself during Rob’s holiday. On the first day he was gone.) But Jannie’s a foodie with a heart-on for baking blogs and further explanation revealed that one of her Christmas joys is to bake wonderful delicious things for folks including our archery class!
Enter the brownie.
Now, I eat (and cheat) gluten free and to my dismay thought I wouldn’t be able to partake of this miracle without scabbing over but Jannie’s hip to the modern dilemma of food-sharing and she was right on top of accommodating allergies and the like. So this past Monday night, none had to miss out on the joy of a chocolate-chip-topped, moist, delicious brownie – and if you’ve tried gluten-free, that’s a significant accomplishment.
We shot some arrows between snacks, too, but once you start doing things like brownies, you’ve got a community instead of just a class.
