Hi, it’s me again. Last time it was my fault, I was lazy. This time, it wasn’t really my fault. Honest.
PS Isn’t Raven cute?
You see, I had every intention of writing a post to follow up the apologetic roasted tomatoes but then I bought a ticket for the crazy train and paid for it through the teeth. Literally. My teeth hurt for days.
Okay, that last sentence was kind of funny but probably didn’t make much sense, so let me ‘splain.
What started out innocently enough, turned into a wine-fueled dance party at a friend’s wedding reception followed the next day by a 9 year old’s birthday party at our house. Imagine: waking up somewhat hungover on Sunday morning, driving the 2 hours home, baking cupcakes, shopping for snacks, setting up… 10 kids, 4 hours… tired yet?
10 kids x 4 hours = enough energy to power the stadium lights at Candlestick Park for an 11 inning game.
Anyway, I went to bed that night with a sore throat and woke up the next morning with a sinus infection (which is why my teeth hurt – my whole face ached. It sucked, I don’t recommend it).

I finally found enough energy to try my first batch a couple of days ago but sadly did not have enough energy to take pictures or write a post so looks like I will have to make some more. Oh, darn.
So while I get caught up in the kitchen, have a look at these pumpkiny treats:
