Day 215—Trompe L’oeil

And fool the eye they will! Carrot zucchini muffins. . . ooh, yum! Well, not exactly. I guess these could be called carrot zucchini muffins, but they are better known as Parrot Pot Pies and despite their appearance, they are not intended for human consumption, as my brother can attest. They are no doubt healthy (whole wheat flour, corn meal, quinoa, oat bran, flax meal, almond flour, red palm oil, and pumpkin, among other things) but, with no added sugar or salt, their flavor apparently leaves something to be desired, and their texture, well, let’s just say the added crunch from egg shells is a bit off-putting. I am baking Parrot Pot Pies to send with Bobo when she stays with my brother while I am in Italy for three weeks. This time I will label them carefully so he doesn’t mistakenly eat one again.
