Sugar, bread and some travel seem to be the bread and butter of my blog. This is how it usually sweet things happen on a blog.
It’s a rainy Sunday morning. The weather sucks, so a walk is out of question. My reserve of blog content is running low. I feel an urge to make something, but I don’t know what yet.
It must be easy and quick as in the afternoon Tomek will use an oven for 5 hours to prepare pulled pork and we need to bake bread as well. I’m not in a mood for something sweet, because if there is something sweet at home I will eat it. But it’s too miserable for a salad. A soup would need to be spot on to make it to the blog, and today we are just need to recycle not the freshest broccoli, so it won’t be anything fancy.
I try to think of something, anything, but my head is empty. Homemade cosmetics that I was trying lately are good, but still need more experiments. I flick through cookbooks and finally my brain finds solution. I need to use blood oranges.
A few searches later I have a recipe for muffins. Yes, they are sweet, but it’s Sunday. If I promise myself not to eat sweets during upcoming week I should be fine (I know I’m lying, but the idea of orange muffins already is in my head).
Muffins are easy and I already have all ingredients, I will be able to tell my friend about them, so instead of wasting more time by wondering what to do I just stand up and make a batch.
And loads of muffins later, here we are…
