I had some coconut milk left over, but not much so it found its way into muffins. I liked these much more than everyone else in the house, but the kids don't really dig lime/coconut anything, so I wasn't surprised. I used this basic recipe, which I love. I used coconut milk instead of regular milk and then made a thin glaze with a whole lot of lime juice and rind. I didn't have any. They are so good. They have become glazed cupcakes in my mind, no longer muffins. This photo makes them look sad and washed out (the instagram doesn't always work for me on the blog) but they didn't look like this in real life, were very pretty. And they kept well.
- The other morning I laughed so hard at the podcast interview on By the Way, In Conversation wth Jeff Garlin with Lena Dunham that I got an eye twitch. (thanks for the tip in the comments last post!)
- My knitting is going, I am 2/3rds done with the first sleeve of the sweater for the 8-year old, but got distracted with Easter and sewing a gingham skirt, which ended up having 3 different waistband treatments before I settled for a basic straight in front/gathered in back. I hacked into this thing so much, it was really a process. I liked it so much I kept altering it and almost wrecking it. Which reminds me of my brother telling me, when I asked him where all his beloved Star Wars figures went from his youth, that as a boy he set them on fire because he loved them so much and wanted to see what they looked like melted. And then he was sad.
- I'm not reading any fiction right now, and I need to start something, pronto. If you have a compelling but not too depressing or sad suggestion, please share.
