Conversation snippet: Butterscotch bars

“I had no bread, and I was too lazy to make oat bran or fry eggs, so I made butterscotch bars instead.”

“Butterscotch what?”

“Butterscotch bars. You melt brown sugar and butter together, then add eggs and flour and chuck it in the oven. It comes out like hard candy. So basically I had a whole bunch of brown sugar for breakfast.”

“. . . It seems that would actually take more time and work to make than to fry an egg.”

“Yes, but the end result is so much better!”
