Midnight Baking

The other day at the supermarket my husband asked why I never bought carrots. So I did the only logical thing and grabbed a huge bag of carrots and threw them in the cart. Everyday I opened the fridge wondering what I was going to do with so many damn carrots. Tonight (this morning?) I decided to make some carrot muffins. I only used up about 10 percent of them.

This is the recipe I sort of read but didn’t really follow. Instead of all-purpose flour I used whole wheat, and I used powdered sugar because I didn’t have the regular stuff. I also didn’t have baking soda (at least not usable baking soda) or nutmeg, and I used agave syrup in place of honey, and I definitely did not do the whole separate eggs thing. Oh, and I didn’t feel like grating an orange so I mixed in a little packet of True Lemon.

I am the best baker.

When they were done there was a lot of this…

… because I was too lazy to grease the pan.

Despite all of that, they are really tasty, even my daughter liked them. Er… I mean, no, she was asleep when all of this happened. She’s definitely not awake now, no siree Bob! She’s sound asleep and so am I. Goodnight!





I like to have my threads on display so that I’ll get inspired and do something with them. Does it work? Not much, but they sure look pretty. On top you can see my tape measure, some embroidery floss and two little dolls from Guatemala. Next time I’ll show you what I have hidden in that film canister; it’s also from Guatemala.
