"Haphazard baby happy mommy..."
pumpkin bread recipe and asked me if I thought that it could be made as muffins instead of loaves. That got me thinking - 'gosh, I really want some muffins' - and so it began... An excursion through the freezer yielded enough butternut squash puree for half of a batch. According to my memory, the puree was watery so I opted to not add any water to the batter, instead I added a few tablespoons of pareve-cream. I swapped barley flour and some extra gluten, then stirred in about 1/3 cup of oats to help bulk and 'fiberfy' the mixture (and to absorb any extra water.) I cut down on the oil a bit too. Finally I divided the mixture into two bowls then stirred chocolate chips into one and white chocolate chips & craisins into the other.
Tomorrow - the rest of the cooking, cleaning, laundry, and finally if all goes well - Shabbos. I'm excited because hopefully I'll get to read my book for book club. I'm VERY hopeful *hint hint - nudge nudge* *ahem Z...*
