Not since Girl Scouts

I’ve said it before and I have no doubt I’ll say it again…
I don’t cook.
That said, occasionally I do, in fact, tinker about the kitchen. In fact I’m planning a dinner even now.
1 Main course predetermined and relatively hard to mess up (though I did once – lesson hopefully learned).
2 Side starch is basic, but one I haven’t made in a decade. Crossing my fingers.
3 Side veggies (2) feel safe enough.
Spiced pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
As far as I can remember, I haven’t even made cupcakes since girl scouts.
But tonight as you can see, I did. Because I didn’t want to totally guinea pig my friends.
So I made pumpkin cupcakes.
Ingredients = cake mix (yellow, though I’m told chocolate can also work), pumpkin, and some cinnamon and a bit of ginger. And frosting, of course. It made just over a dozen cupcakes.
They’re not bad. But they’re not so great that I’ll make them for company.
Hopefully the other recipe will work out.
Now what am I going to do with all these cupcakes? I can’t eat them all… Or at least not if I don’t want to undo all my healthier-decision-making.
I guess I’ll have to
foist them off share them with my colleagues.
