on repeat

that's the little button we all used to have on our cd players back in the day. i was definitely that kid who wore out the button. and before that i was wearing out cassette tapes to the point when the music started to sound as if it was on a psychedelic trip. i would like to say that i wore out my records as well but i wasn't aloud to touch the record player, for good reason. my brother and i always broke the needles. wearing out records came later in life around the point of the early twenties. any who, the soundtrack to my life, or at least the last two months has been belle and sebastian. i feel so chipper when i hear their sweet little scottish voices singing to me. it always puts me in the mood to bake. so that's just what i did this morning after realizing it was 7:15 and school was not calling me in. i carted little man oscar to vuggestue (pre-school) and made a trip to the danish versions of sam's club to pick up some odds and ends.

so while listening to "dear catastrophe waitress" for the umpteenth million time i made sweet potato zucchini muffins. i've been wanting to make this for the past few days but family gatherings, birthday parties and work got in the way. this was adapted from joy the baker...

Zucchini Sweet Potato Bread

350F / 176C

1hour and 20 mins

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups sugar

3/4 cup vegetable oil

needless to say they were quite lovely and a refreshing break from all the chocolate stuff i've been making. this week i'll try to post about some of the stuff i've been working on in the past.

hugs, jackson
