It’s only seventy-four days until Halloween/my birthday, and it’s not too early for pumpkin muffins. Snow is appearing on the mountains and it snowed (briefly, no accumulation) at 11,500 feet last weekend.

I was commissioned to make flatbread.
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
Around ten minutes to go in rising time, preheat a dry cast-iron skillet or griddle to medium-high heat (the higher end of medium-high). On a well-floured surface, form the dough into balls. With a well-floured rolling pin, roll out to 1/4-inch thickness.
Transfer to the skillet and cook until firm, about 2 minutes on each side. Flip when either the bottom has black spots (if you like char) or when the top has begun to buckle. Cook through and plate up or rack ’em to cool before storing.
Since I have a small skillet, I could only fit two or three small tortillas per batch on the pan. The original recipe says it yields 12 tortillas, but I had more like 20 because I made smaller ones.
I made a super-quick chilli: blitzed onion, garlic, veg broth, spices, pumpkin, kidney and pinto beans.
I also got buzzed on batter with my modification of The Holistic Ingredient’s Beetroot, Quinoa and Chocolate Muffins. Midafternoon, I wanted the taste, not the effects of Queen Jennie sorghum whiskey. See 4 eggs, I see 1 cup water and 4 teaspoons of chia seeds, which means half of that water got replaced with half a cup of whiskey. Boozy beets, indeed.
Rules for wearing a skirt (of any length) while riding a bike:
Soup! Because it’s cold outside. There’s probably 1,001 variations on some vegan, gluten-free, roasted butternut squash curried soup because it is brainlessly easy to prepare. Even a zombie could make it.
Power, paleo, pumpkin, press, pensamientos.
Reading is wonderful. As I’m not driving as much during the workweek, I read for news. I’m going to do what my grandparents on both sides fear about blogs: share my opinion! As if I don’t any other week.
Nostalgia…comes in many flavours. Nostalgia also features ellipses, and sometimes tissues, and, for the VGF among us, carbs.
