An Accidental Experiment

It's spring, right? I wanted to make rhubarb muffins. But apparently, I've forgotten how to read. I didn't put in nearly the correct amount of sugar. So, the experimental part was, "Are they edible?" The answer is yes, although Om thinks they need some jelly (like strawberry) to make them less tart. Me? They do need a little more sugar than I put in, but I learned that the amount the recipe calls for could be cut back a LOT. I like these muffins, but always thought they were awfully sweet. That will be fixed next time, with an amount in between the two extremes.

In other news: I worked on hike food, including a trip to the store (ugh) to get a bunch of ingredients. Tomorrow, I get serious. I also did some more weeding. I think I could almost stay home and just play in the dirt this summer. Social distancing from the human race sounds A-OK. But I'm fairly certain I'll be ready to take a hike in about 2 weeks!

Muffins sound good and even better with less sugar.
