It is approximately a million times easier to make frosting with a stand mixer than without one. Holy cow! I had no idea. I love frosting, but I almost never make it because it's such a pain, even with a hand mixer. This may change in the future.

I decided on peanut butter for the brownies in the end. I was curious about the buttercream recipe (it's quite tasty), and the flavor combination seemed more fall-like than mint. Also, my mint brownie recipe requires the mint frosting layer to stand for four hours before you can add the chocolate frosting layer, and I just don't feel like getting up early in the morning to finish baking. Orange was mighty tempting, though. I'll have to search out a recipe for chocolate-orange frosting the next time I make brownies (which may be next week, depending on how ambitious I'm feeling).

So the office Thanksgiving potluck is tomorrow. One of the admissions reps is deep frying a turkey. I've been hearing for years how good that is, so I am dying to try it. Also, I'm madly curious to see the frying rig -- I've heard stories about that as well. He's going to be doing it on the roof of the parking garage. And then of course there's the short day of work, with which I will not argue!
