I have been taking solace in baking lately. If I get elbow deep in some dough, I won’t try to read the latest news on my phone. After I took the boys to see Screenagers last night, I deleted Facebook and Twitter off of my phone and made a plan to cut way back. We definitely have a “do as I say, not as I do” situation going on. Screenagers was a very interesting documentary about screen time, the brain, teenagers, rules, self control, and learning. It was good.
So how did these muffins turn out? Ok. I should have soaked the oats in milk longer. I kind of threw these together and they were actually pretty good, but nothing to write a blog post about.
If you must know... Follow the oatmeal version.
The cake was amazing.
I also made this fancy appetizer for a party, which was in the latest Sunset Magazine. I recommend making this.
