As requested, I will post that muffin recipe…as soon as I figure out how I bastardized the original recipe. I don’t really cook as much as I fling stuff into a bowl and see what happens. And ingredients are often….ummm…..hey, what’s in the fridge. So let me look at that and see what I can come up with as far as advice on what to fling into your bowl to approximate what I flung into mine. That is, if you don’t mind instructions like “Pour some salt into you palm, like enough to fill that little hollow when you cup your hand, now take a pinch of that, throw it over your shoulder, pour the rest out of your hand over the sink and then brush the grains of salt that stick to your palm into the batter…let’s just call it a “Pinch”.
In the meanwhile here are some lists…incomplete…
Things I like, in no particular order:
Dark chocolate, bats, cats, giraffes, dogs, books (all kinds), comic books (less kinds but right at this moment Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse and Buffy the Vampire Slayer “The Long Way Home” a.ka. “Season Eight”), baking, cooking in general, tea, sticky notes, Hellboy, Django Reinhardt, the color red, black cotton sweaters, peace signs, driving, butter lettuce, “British Humor”, Doctor Who, daisies, birds, oysters, art, the ocean, cupcakes, some bugs (but not all bugs), shopping, bags (hand and tote), watches, tattoos, picture frames, Batman, Puerto Rico, Miss Marple, Terry Pratchett, Shakespeare, chocolate sprinkles, toast, tofu, broccoli, chaise lounges, poetry, period movies, Jane Austen novels, Icanhascheezburger.com, pants with pockets, cotton socks, warm sheets, blank notebooks, postcards, watercolor paints.
Things I firmly believe (in no particular order): dessert is not dessert unless there is chocolate involved, or at the very least, caramel, being nice is important, manners are what separates us from the beasts, one good turn deserves another, Shakespeare’s plays were written by Shakespeare, babies know more than they are saying, all pants should have pockets, what comes around goes around…or something like that, if you can’t take a joke then fuck you, very few things are better the second day with the possible exception of lasagna, chocolate flavor is not the same as chocolate, some things really are easier said than done, there is a comic book, a beer and a type of whisky for everyone, you just have to try them all until you find the right one.
Things I avoid when at all possible: bell peppers, sharks, cleaning the litter box, frogs, making a left into traffic, colds, high heels, wool sweaters, answering the phone, doctors, dairy, cleaning the toilet, broken nails, cold feet, watery beer, sticky keyboards and steering wheels, magnolia trees, slurping my soup, not having tissues, smeary glasses, chicken thighs, having my picture taken.
