Spun my first skein!

It was actually a few weeks ago, and I did a crappy skein that I had to unravel first, but you can see it on my Ravelry page by looking for starzo11's stash. (Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to post the picture and I don't know if this will work for non-Ravelry members.) It is purple and very slubby. But I am working on a better one.

My ginger plants

I was grating ginger for a recipe and noticed the ginger was sprouting. So, knowing me, I planted it. Now it is sending up little green shoots of which I will post a picture as soon as I can figure out how to hook up the camera to the computer! I am so excited. Oh, and the spider plants are making babies too!

Changing my blog

It's as simple as this: I decided it was time for a change.
When I first created this blog I thought it was cool to have Asperger Syndrome, so I called the blog "Aspies are Cool".
But now I wonder: how can a neurological impairment be "cool"? That just doesn't make any sense.
So I changed my blog to something that better reflects the real me: Rutabaga Girl.
Why that? For one thing, I think that 'rutabaga' is a funny word. And I like funny things. Actually, I think 'rutabaga' is my favorite word. And they are crunchy and delicious. I just thought I should explain why the name of my blog suddenly changed.

GAPS "Pumpkin" muffins

I modified the coconut banana muffin recipe to use 1 cup acorn squash in place of the bananas, and added cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves for seasoning. They came out delicious! Here is the recipe:
Beat 6 eggs and 1/4 cup each of honey and coconut oil or melted butter. Add 1 cup each of mashed squash and coconut flour. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Make as muffins for 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Enjoy!
