Photo Story Friday - Just One of Those Days

On Sunday the G.I.D. left for work, (yes, for those of you who are new here, The Guy I Dig works on the weekends) while Harrison and I got in the car to go to church.

Only we didn't get far.

It wouldn't start. The battery is fine, the alternator is fine, the starter is - not so fine.


Harrison cried. He wanted to go to church. Now I'm home all day with a Preschooler that won't nap and is whiny. Just my Luck. (Did I mention it was cold and wet outside from a light rain - not park weather. Not for me at least.)

What do you do with a Preschooler on a long cold day when you both wanted to be somewhere else? Feed him.

Better yet - have him help make not one, but two batches of Pumpkin Muffins.

From scratch.

That worked. He was in foodie-heaven.

But He still didn't nap.

Oh and if you want the recipes, there are
here (for the bumpy muffin - as Harrison calls it) and here. Next time I think I'll try the recipe from Angry Chicken.

Well, the no nap thing is hard to cope with some days especially with crummy weather. But baking sure turned out to be a good idea. Sounds like some yummy muffins were made. :)

Pumpkin muffins are my favorite! I feed Francesco on cold raining days as well, hoping that food coma will set in and he takes a nap.

You are so GOOD! I probably would have curled up with a book and Noggin for the kids or something!

The muffins look so, SO yummy!!!!

Some days, you just won't win every battle.
But the muffins look great.
I hope your car is working by now.
