Another moment of my paranormal life, captured forever:
A sure way to break The Boy’s heart is to put nuts into food he likes. For years, I gave up walnuts in my brownies. (Because I spoil my children whenever possible.)
Then I realized I could force a compromise:
As an extra perk, after you push all the nuts down into the batter, you get to lick your finger. Sweet.
Does anyone else do this?
