Broken down but not down and out

I awoke (not so eagerly as my early risers) excited to get ready for a play day and a new recipe I wanted to try out. had this recipe: grain free pumpkin muffins
They are amazing!!! I used butter since I am out of coconut oil. Going to try something new and order my food through Azure, that includes my newly discovered coconut oil.
So while my muffins were baking, I decided to check my car to make sure it was running. I killed my battery Saturday night, so much to my children's delight, we had to take the "bubble butt" truck to church and out and about. I thought it was up and running, but sadly no:( No play day for us out, but the smell coming from my oven meant one thing we were looking forward to was happening. The kids keep asking for one every hour, I guess they are a hit. (I just got the call from my hubby- no errands or coffee dates this afternoon, charging our two batteries-again). So I guess that means less caffeine and more packing for me!
Nap times a coming along with my lunch and packing time.
I'm eager to share more on life, not just food! Maybe later after I've got some boxes packed....or another day. I'm learning to roll a bit more with life and not be so grumpy when I don't get my way. That's not to say I don't wish I was having some of my aunt's home roasted espresso and a good chat!

I stumbled upon a great yummy blog

In a hurry the other day, I googled gf carrot and zucchini muffins:) I quickly found a recipe that looked good. Today, I had a few mins and was able (on my iphone) to find more recipes that are healthy and look yummy! I love to eat and I enjoy feeding my family foods I know will nourish their bodies. Besides eating gluten and dairy free for my oldest and I, we recently have been trying to just eat more veggies. I find my energy levels are higher on those days I eat more balanced. This newly discovered blog helps support what I'm already attempting.

Grain Free zucchini carrot muffins. The only thing I modified was a grated small apple for the applesauce it called for and added that with the grated carrots and zucchini that I grated in my food processor.
Find the recipe at cookbakenibble.con
Tomorrow I try her grain free pumpkin muffins!
