Thursday Menu 3/2 - Pumpkin Raisin Muffins
Cinnamon Life with soymilk.
I went to Romano's Macaroni Grill with my dad, so I ate a lot of bread and did the create your own pasta thing. Whole wheat penne, tomato basil sauce, roasted garlic, carmelized onions, and fresh spinach. Sounds good, right? It was, until I found a few bits of chicken in it. I sent it back and they made it fresh, and it appeared chicken-free but by that point I wasn't very hungry anyway. I ate a few bites and then packed it up and brought it home for The Boy.
3 Tbsp chocolate chips.
1 oz almonds
2 pumpkin-raisin muffins.
Yeah, tonight was a snack-fest. I never really got hungry, so I just kept grabbing a snack every few hour. The chocolate chips and the muffins were spread out throughout the evening, but it seemed stupid to list them separately.
The muffins were a variation on the Best Pumpkin Muffins from VwaV. We're driving to Connecticut tomorrow and I wanted something portable and yummy for the trip. These fit the bill. I made some changes, and also took some pictures, but the recipe and photos will have to wait. I'm having some serious color issues that I never had with my PC, so until I figure things out I probably won't be posting many photos. But the plus side is that when I do get everything worked out I'll have about 20 photos to post all at once. It'll be an embarrasment of food porn.
I'm taking the laptop with me to CT, but I don't know if I'll have internet access or not. If not then I'll see you on Sunday, hopefully with a newfound understanding of browser colorspace and a big-ass jug of maple syrup. Mmm, syrupy.
In completely unrelated news, I bought a sheet of very nice 300 lb watercolor paper this afternoon, brought it home, answered the phone, and when I came back into the living room to put it away what did I find? Scarlet chewing on the deckled edge that was sticking out of the bag, of course. Awesome! I love it when cats eat stuff that costs $10/sheet. I swear, she will try to eat anything she can fit in her mouth. And if she can't fit it into her mouth then she'll sit on it or knock it all over the place. I love her but she can be extremely annoying sometimes. Like a child, pretty much. Which is why I do not ever plan to have any.
Over and out.
