Mushaboom



I got up and it was cool enough to make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip muffins, here's the recipe:

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups canned pumpkin puree
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 24 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, sugar, salt and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, beat together pumpkin, eggs and water. Stir pumpkin mixture into flour mixture; beat until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into center of a muffin comes out clean.
I also found an intriguing folkie/indie artist Leslie Feist, more commonly known as Feist from another website and loved her song Mushaboom. So here's a photo that seems to reflect the ethereal strangeness and the song itself.

So make a good cup of french roast with some creme, raw sugar, grab a muffin and have a good one.
