What does "20th Anniversary" mean?

Isn't someone from Maine supposed to know that those "red thingies" are cranberries?

Your brownies were the very essence of Brownie-ness ...
Oh, that wasn't a 20th anniversary party?

Growing up in Maine I thought cranberries came in a can once a year on Thanksgiving.

I'll let Martha know about the brownies.

Thanks again for a very fun day.
That party was indeed an amazing confluence of toddler-driven chaos and gastronomical brilliance ... highly memorable. Mike's pizza gets the Cordon Blau from me.
the brownies were good, super moist.
you can't get a bad meal in that house. one slight correction that Jen H's Italian grandma would require. Not sure why but they are Egg Biscuits. Like that rock band. Strange since we wouldn't call a brownie an egg brownie just because it has an egg in the recipe.
I forgot to take the muffins!
