    A Year of Elizabeth Barrett’s Brownies

    Donor(s): Liz Barrett

    I will provide you with six generous batches of delicious brownies, with or without nuts, over the next year. Real butter, good chocolate, no preservatives.  They’ll be sliced small (50 in a batch) or large – your choice.

    You can choose to have them every month for six months … every other month for 12 months … and you can even combine multiple batches for a big party, as suits your needs.  I’ll bring them to church most any Sunday morning or Thursday evening.  Just call – a few days’ notice is sufficient, and barring a conflict, I can get them to you pretty quickly.

    In other words, I become your Personal Brownie Chef for the year!  YUM!

    Special notes from Ed Gaddy:

    • As an added bonus, you may get to meet Ed’s slightly obnoxious cat, Root. Please do not discuss politics with Root. He is opinionated and weaponized. If you stay away from religion and politics, you will be fine and may even get a purr.
    • Information about the house is available at: https://www.baltimoresun.com/features/home/bs-mg-hm-gaddy-home-20170807-story.html and https://living-future.org/lbc/case-studies/gaddy-house
    • Rules and Regulations (gasp, bureaucracy even here):  Ed’s driveway has room for 15 vehicles; but sadly, all but two of the vehicles will be parked in until the end of the event. On street parking is not available. If you can, please carpool. Please do not park even a wheel on Ed’s neighbors’ lawns. One neighbor is very sensitive about this.
