I can bring home the bacon...

I feel like Supermom today. In the morning we went shopping with the stroller. Then, while Nutmeg was eating lunch, I got a call that a network news crew was coming to my house to interview me. I put her down for her nap and spent half an hour feverishly tidying up, putting in contacts and throwing on some presentable clothes. There wasn't time to do much about my hideous hair. Oh well, they spent a lot of time shooting the documents my story was based on, so maybe they won't even show my head. The segment is supposed to air Wed. night. If you want to know what nework, you'll have to email me.

By the time Nutmeg woke from her two-hour nap, the crew had come in, set up lights, camera and sound, did an interview complete with redos for 3 camera angles, and split. The baby had no idea there had even been anyone here. I'm living a secret double life! I have no idea what would have happened had Nutmeg woken up.

Then Nutmeg and I made our best batch of carrot muffins ever. We've been fiddling with a recipe I found online (attributed to Gourmet) for months, and here is the perfect healthy version:

2 cups whole-wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup honey (or possibly less)
2 cups shredded carrots
1/2 cup raisins
3 eggs
3/4 cups corn oil
2 tsp vanilla
1 granny smith apple, shredded

preheat oven for 350. put flour, soda, cinnamon and salt in bowl. stir. add carrots and raisins and toss. in another bowl, mix eggs, honey, oil and vanilla. add apple. combine wet and dry. bake in muffin tin for 20 minutes.
