still going to do that, but first I'm taking a mini-
detour to mention that fact that it is now October 1st, and I love Halloween.
I recently found myself wandering the seasonal display aisles in JoAnn's Fabrics, almost buying these Martha Stewart blood spatter cupcake wrappers, which were 25% off. (If you're smart,
you'll go there now.) I cannot promise that these will not be in my pantry (OK, the cupboard above my oven) before the end of the month. I had to draw the line at the little 3-piece coffin boxes that were 30%.
I picked them up. I put them down. It was a battle between the 15-21 year-old Christine (1995-2001) and the 30-year old Christine (present day). Awful. Finally the present day me defeated the past me--the winning argument was this: "What exactly will you do with these? Paint them black and put buttons in them? Bobby pins? Your pocket knife collection? Not good enough. Put them back on the shelf."
|You've got red on you.|
|The bloodier, the better.|
The 30-year old Christine is not much fun at all. But I did give in when I saw these glittery blood splatter stickers (also Martha Stewart--her team knows what's up) and wanted, wanted, wanted them. See, my brain knows when to say no (hamburgers) and when to say yes (glitter blood splat stickers). They're much cooler in person. Just wait until you get one on a postcard--you'll see.

1 2/3 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
(I added a little nutmeg. I mean: why not?)
1/3 cup applesauce
1 cup milk (I used soy milk.)
(I added a little vanilla too. Have at it.)
1 cup blackberries
|Yup, Green Bluff berries from Knapp's.|
|Even delicious upside-down.|
