Butterscotch Badness...or should I say, goodness?

So I've been on a bit of an ice cream and gelado kick lately. What can I say? 'Tis the season. When the weather warms up, my icy sweet tooth comes out. So last night, after a particularly grueling round of hot yoga, we hit a local ice cream shop for shakes. I got a butterscotch one. And holy smokes, was it dee-lish!

But it seems I celebrated a day or two too early. I checked my trusty food holiday calendar (what? don't judge me! I like to eat!) today and guess what I discovered? Tomorrow is National Butterscotch Brownie Day. Huzzah!

In honor of this special occasion, and beecause I love you'se guys so much, I dug up a Splenda-sweetened butterscotch brownie recipe. Alas, I will not be able to indulge in the sweet treat tomorrow. Instead, I will be drinking cheap beer and possibly snarfig down a hot dog - or maybe just some peanuts - at Turner Field. My beloved (and as per usual, awful) Cubbies are in town, so I'm hitting enemy territory to see the game. I plan to workout in the morning and snack on some celery, carrots and hummus beforehand so I don't eat everything in sight when I get to the stadium. Wish me - and the Cubs - a little luck.
