Sorry For the Long Break!
Last weekend was Ethan’s birthday, so we decided to treat ourselves to a camping trip, without the “kids”. It was awesome to get away from the noisy city, especially since school will be starting soon. We dumped Ruben and Yoda off at Ethan’s parents’ house and headed to Oswald West State Park in Manzanita. It was so beautiful! Here is a picture of the gorgeous river, the bed of which was comprised of the most enormous slabs of stone. I was in love. There are more camping pictures on my Flickr page.
Yesterday, for the first time, I baked the lemon poppyseed muffins from “Vegan With A Vengeance”. For some reason, they don’t seem quite sweet enough to me, and I even sprinkled sugar on top before baking them. Am I just a sugar fiend? The recipe called for a mere 1/4 cup of sugar per dozen muffins, while the pumpkin muffin recipe in the same book (which also makes a dozen) calls for 1 1/4 cups of the sweet stuff?! I am really thinking there is a type-o involved here, although they are still very tasty & pretty. Just not amazing.
