In the last 48 hours, I have managed to delete my last blog post without realizing it (and yes, I’m too lazy to rewrite it and post it again).
Put my hair mousse in the kitchen pantry and cooking spray in the bathroom cabinet.
Started packing for Europe.
Dressed up as a ghostbusting boxing Hugh Hefner (Halloween night #1).
Slept until noon.
Woke up just in time on Saturday morning to eat a mini spicy cheese empanada and drink a large coffee at the farmer’s market before going back to sleep for another hour.
Finished three freelance projects.
Dressed up as Toadette (Halloween night #2).
Got a horrible stomachache which prevented me from eating or drinking much of anything on Saturday…let’s just say a buffalo chicken sub at 2:00am is NOT the answer to that problem.
And upon the return of my appetite, opened my refridgerator to find this:
A can of cannellini beans, Halloween crack mix and eggs.
Oh yeah, and some pumpkin spice tea too.
Ummm…a little help please?
Luckily, I remembered that blog friends are the best kind of help and I saw a White Bean Blondie recipe from my friend Alison that looked delicious in the most healthy way possible. Why not add my beloved peanuts + candy corn to the mix? And the pumpkin spice tea! In honor of it being fall, I’ll add lots and lots of pumpkin pie spice too! Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin…spice, spice, spice…beans, beans, beans…we’ll even sing a song about it! These are going to be the most festive, most delicious bean blondies of my life – thhhaaannkkk youuuuuu Allison!
Then I realized I’ve never even eaten a bean blondie, so how would I know if this would be the best bean blondie of my life?
And I have no pumpkin pie spice. What’s even in pumpkin pie spice?
Two nights of Halloween partying has left me with no voice. How am I ever going to sing the pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin…spice, spice, spice…beans, beans, beans song?
Most importantly, I leave for Europe in two days and have a to-do list 30 things long – why am I even thinking that making pumpkin spice bean blondies is a good idea right now?!?!?
Somehow, amidst this slew of realizations, I soldiered on with my most genius bean blondie idea because I am likely one of the most stubborn people you will ever meet.
But in my pig-headed stubbornness, the one realization I failed to make goes a little something like this: candy corn -> made from sugar -> sugar heats up -> when it heats up enough, it melts -> melted patches of candy corn don’t bode well in baked goods.
Looks like my next 48 hours will consist of me scraping off a baking pan coated with hardened candy corn goop.
