Diversion Tactics (TWD BWJ: Buttermilk Crumb Muffins)
This was one of those weeks where it behooved me to remember the tag line of this site: "Because things don't always work out the way you thought they would - both in life & in the kitchen..."
That pretty much sums up my experience with this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe.
And I don't really want to talk about it.
So I am TOTALLY changing the subject.
The way that I see it, it is a woman's prerogative to change the subject when it comes to certain topics:
Weight/ dress size.
Epic kitchen fails.
Smarties. (The candy - as in those little rolls of pure sugar disks.)
Love them or hate them?
I was listening to some random talk show on the radio the other day and the show hosts were making a list of worst Halloween candies (i.e. you are a total loser if you hand them out because no one like them).
And one of the first candies they said on the "no" list was Smarties.
My mouth dropped open.
I love those little sugar bombs.
And Tootsie Rolls (but only if they are really fresh).
But there weren't any around my house this year.
I was a total coward and fled the house on trick or treat night. I absolutely can't just sit inside the house with my lights off and not give out candy. Major guilt trip.
There was something in me that wasn't ready to face the hundreds of trick or treaters that usually come to the front door each year. So I hid.
Maybe next year I will have my Halloween mojo back. Because there is nothing like greeting those cute little faces looking up at you with an expectant look on their face.
Anyhoo...hopefully, that was enough to distract you all away from the ugly muffins.
