Husband approved gluten free brownie mix

During my grocery trip yesterday, I decided to pick up a gluten free brownie mix. Honestly, I just picked up the cheapest box and hoped for the best. Luckily for me, they were amazing! I gave one to Drew fresh out of the oven, and he couldn't even tell they were "off" in any way.
After making and tasting these brownies, I was searching online for articles that had tested different boxed mixes of gf brownies. This article made me laugh and also listed the Betty Crocker gf brownies as the best. In fact, in a blind test, the gf brownies were were found to be just as good as the Betty Crocker regular mix.

Although the box looks different now, I agree with the review:
I don't have a brownie pan (ridiculous) so I used an 8 inch cake pan and it worked fine. It made it easy to slice into little wedges. The entire pan of brownies is almost gone. I will have to buy another box!

Today for lunch I had a salad topped with a crumbled turkey burger, a little cheese, and sweet onion dressing on the side. I also had some rice crisps (these were nasty), and a brownie. Drew and I were both home because of the temps (High of -6 low of -17, windchills were below -40!!) and I will be home again tomorrow. I am still enjoying the extra time off! 
What was your favorite meal today?
What is the temperature where you are?
