Pan included?

Today we bought what looked like an unbelievably delicious new dessert:

We always enjoy Ms. Betty Crocker; we never say no to anything with Heath bar in it; and it looks like so type of brownie-ish dessert... something else we quite enjoy. Sooooo, we got it. But look closely at the box -- the PAN is INCLUDED. My first thought upon seeing that when I got home was -- wow, how did they fold up a 9x9 pan into a brownie mix sized box? I got all excited to see it and then opened the box. I saw a tiiiiiiiiiiiny little pan and tiiiiiiiiiiiiny ingredients. I'm sure it'll taste delicious, but for costing as much as a cake and totaling the size of a slice of cake, I feel a bit ripped off. Sad.

I'll let you know if it's worth it.

On a different note, Chris and the RATM boys rode in the Haystack Team Time Trial yesterday in Boulder. It looked like a blast and I wanted to do it, but unfortunately couldn't get the girls rallied in time. Instead I played photographer, and wheel sherpa for some random guy who got a flat on his warm-up. I was happy to be able to help him out, afterall, you never know when you'll need a similar favor. Here are some pics from the day. The first two are the only ones that turned out decent of our team, the rest are random teams that I played the "adjust the shutter speed" game with. Some turned out really cool I think.

Here's to another week and another vacation picture.

P.S: Another reason I love my hubby... today we jointly and giddily decided to plan our entire dinner around wine and biscuits. YUM.
