<body> eat local challenge: McMuffiscuit <body>

Thursday, August 03, 2006


We all knew I couldn't go more than one day before I started in with my experimental baking. Yesterday I tried to make blueberry-honey muffins, but I had nothing to replace the eggs (thanks to Angela, I now have local a'sauce HOLLA), so I decided to make "oat eggs" and roll with it. I also had to use butter, which was bizarre and really flavorful. I am used to silent oils.

The batter was more like cookie batter than muffin batter, and I contemplated calling it cookies, but it did puff a little in the oven. And the flavor? Flaky, butter and blueberry explosions, aka McMuffiscuits. They're odd but good, more biscuit and muffin and kind of mealy in a good way.

On August 1st, I thought for sure I loved butter. But the butter novelty has already worn off. How many veggies fried in butter can a girl eat? Add to the list my delicious lunch: shikake mushrooms from Colchester, Rhapsody tempeh (leftover), my coworker Travis's green beans (which he eats out of a coffee cup he carries around - hilarious), fingerling potatoes, corn and cabot cheddar. I call it "McCorn Hash."

I think when this month is over, I am going to be a vegan.

I am buttered up and out. It is only day three! Yesterday, I ate popcorn with butter, corn on the cob with butter, sweet potatoes with butter, and frozen blue berries(not butter)!
Butter and I are breaking it off for awhile!
