Regardless, the brownies will be edible because they will be topped with Whitey's Graham Central Station ice cream. If you don't live in Eastern Iowa and have access to Whitey's (or Heyn's lemon custard) well, I feel sorry for you. Maybe you have a nearby local ice cream that is comparable. I hope so,
Also on the menu is beef and hubbard squash stew, quickly becoming a favorite at our house. The homemade tomato sauce with Marsala wine and sun-dried tomatoes really sets it off. Also, taking advantage of the summer bounty, parmesan zucchini bread.
We are going to Maquoketa Caves State Park, one of Iowa's best. We haven't been there for four years--in fact, not since I wrote my first book, Bats and Bones, which is based on that park. The weather is supposed to be perfect: pleasant days and cool nights. This will be a short trip, but a chance to find out what's needed to restock the camper before a longer trip up north next week.
The fifth book in the Frannie Shoemaker series is now out on Kindle, To Cache a Killer. The paperback will be available soon. I was able to get it out Saturday for International Geocaching Day. Hope you enjoy it.
