I’m really into eating today. How does that time of the month change a woman’s eating habits? It really makes no sense. I think it’s the placebo effect. We just think that we want more food during that time of the month because that’s what we have been told all of our lives. Period = chocolate. Chocolate = bloating. Bloating = Omg, periods are the worst. When really, it’s just the 18 pounds of M&M’s we consumed that are actually the worst. Maybe I’m making all of this up. I don’t think that can really be considered a placebo effect. Damnit. Are you as lost as I am? Moving on.

I just put brownies in the oven. What a beautiful day.

So this weekend was pretty damn uneventful. I did get a bit too drunk one night and found myself awake at 6:15am with a stomach ache that could kill a small child. Thankfully, I had some leftover pumpkin cream donuts in the fridge along with leftover sweet potatoes. So this is what I did. I put 2 strips of bacon in a pan, then added the sweet potatoes, then eggs on top and fried the eggs. All while eating the stuffed donuts. Alcohol makes you crave carbs. I don’t know if that’s a fact, but I’m going to say it is since it’s sugar. Sugar makes you crave more sugar. Which I craved all weekend. Alcohol AND that time of the month, oh hells no. Kill me now. It’s like the atomic bomb of sweet cravings in one weekend. That was a poor analogy. Back to the point. After stuffing my face with food and watching Spongebob Squarepants while shivering in our 60 degree house, I went back to bed until 9am. Then you know what I did? I went to the gym. And had a pretty great workout. All it did was offset all the food I ate, but whatevs. Have you ever done the ‘Bring Sally Up‘ workout thingy? I can’t squat nowadays, so I did it with a press. It was delightfully miserable.

I’m not really sure how many movies I watched this weekend, but too many. I have no idea how people spend their weekends inside, on the couch. My back actually hurts from sitting too much. But there are movies out there to be seen, and sometimes you just have waste your money and body to be hip with the times. I finally watched the entire movie The Great Gatsby. I don’t know if I ever actually read that book in high school. Guessing no because I used to only read the clif notes to everything when I was in high school. I was a rebel. And hated following the rules. And listening. And doing what I was told. Anywho, I wasn’t impressed with the movie. It was a bit of a downer. I understand movies not having super happy endings, but I’d like to be warned ahead of time. I like paying for movies that are going to give me an ending worth watching. That make me think all relationships turn out perfect. And give me a skewed perception of happiness. Now that’s my kind of movie.

Does it make anyone else uncomfortable when people talk about their divorce via Facebook status? Hand raised over here.

    I just want you to know these muffins are giving me LIFE during this freaking quarantine. I’ve made them three times now, doubling them every time. Not gonna lie, the first time I made them, I was feeling sorry for myself because my husband was out of town and I ate the whole double batch myself over a long weekend. Oops. Decided to make them again for him because I knew he would love them. Totally wrong season for pumpkin muffins and IDGAF. They are delicious and comforting and the best pumpkin muffins EVER. Thank you!

  4. Alison says:

    I make these all the time and I love them! I’m allergic to almonds so recipes with coconut flour are a life savor for my sweet tooth!

    1. juli says:

      so happy to hear that, Alison!!

  5. Veronique says:

    Baking powder is made with cornstarch. I look for paleo recipes due to a corn allergy, so this recipe isn’t corn-allergy friendly. Thoughts on a baking powder substitute that would work for this recipe?
