Listen to the music of the traffic in the city
From my perspective, traveling without Brad was difficult. Uliana did her usual number of refusing to sleep and clinging to her mother... which caused Nikolai to feel rather neglected without a parent to attend to his needs. After our first day in the city I was ready to go home and cancel all our future vacation plans... when... Uliana decided that staying at Grammy's house wasn't so bad after all. Phew! We have two more weeks of traveling to do this summer and I certainly couldn't be dragging a reluctant orchid around the Province.
I do remember Nikolai being a great traveler, but he was over a year old his first summer of traveling. By then he had some language skills and was walking. In comparison, Uliana just twirls around in a circle on her tummy. Her language skills are relegated to smiling and various decibels of screaming. If something doesn't suit her, there is not much that she can do about it.
Grease a 8" square pan and line with parchment paper and spoon in batter. Bake at 325 F (165 C) for 30-40 min. They should be firmly set on the outside, but still gooey on the inside.
The portion in the photo above may seem small... but these brownies are SUPER RICH. Below is a photo of cowboy Nikolai. He wore his cowboy outfit to a fancy dress party on Sunday and received so many compliments that he hasn't taken it off since!
