It’s not often that a gal gets an invite to the Man Cave. And so it is, that tonight I’m making the three-hour trip to visit C at his Okie residence… the residence that he shares with two other guys. This testosterone-filled, three-bedroom house is less than a block away from the bar and contains a hot tub & tractor-rim firepit. Anyone seeing frat party-like beerfests? Yeah, me too. So, in the hopes of receiving a second invitation, I’m taking this week’s FFwD as a little gift. Guys like nuts, right? Don’t answer that. Obviously, I mean with beer. 😉
These were incredibly simple to make but were weird-looking as they came out of the oven, ready to be broken apart. Was it just me or were they supposed to merge together to form a giant dark puddle? I’m thinking it was me. They were more sweet than spicy, so I’m definitely adding more spice the next time I make them. And there will be a next time – I’m planning these as Christmas gifts for the guys in the family. Or possibly a treat for the second time I visit the Man Cave. If I receive another invitation, that is.
