I accidentally made fat-free muffins. They were still edible.

Better than when I've accidentally made sugar-free things or left out the baking powder, anyway. I expect the banana in them helped with the texture. I haven't had the motivation to bake anything for many months so it's a bit sad to have made a mistake in these, but hey, having something home-made and different is still nice.

I'm seeing [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo coming around again soon. Maybe there's something about the time of year - after joining in every year for so long - that I associate with the need to be creative. Yesterday I was outside in the clear winter sunshine taking macro photos in the garden, and today I found the drawing tablet I'd got for a birthday a few years back and tried plugging it in, but I hadn't consciously remembered NaArMaMo is coming until later on.

Maybe it's just that I've now had two days in a row where nobody at work has been sick and I haven't been called in when I'm rostered off, and suddenly my creativity starts to return.

I'm glad the muffins turned out edible.

I'm probably going to miss naamamo again, which makes me sad, but I hope you all have fun.

I remember from the fat-free 90s that apple sauce or bananas were a thing. Those were grim days, but on the other hand, is there anything that banana can't be substituted for? The fat, the eggs, sometimes amongst the paleo people for the flour...

At least the muffins were edible! :)


Ooh I hadn't been thinking of naarmamo, it's something I've always loved but never seem to have enough time or energy to complete. But at least it inspires me to do more art :) I'm glad you mentioned it so I can think about preparing!

That's seems like a cool idea - I might try this year as I'm well set up to do a drawing each day, and feeling creative.

So you mention naarmamo - well, I have been thinking of it but I really don´t know. I have tried to draw all things thatI was able to. But now I will have to look for simple things and I really haven´t made any plans.
But I LOVE this event, it is a festival od art and friendship!
