Don't Hate Me Because I'm Sweating

I don't mean to brag but, I am hot. In Los Angeles today it is unbelievably, unseasonably 85 degrees and sunny. Not a cloud in the sky. I'm so sorry. I know many of you are bundled up, hunkering down, digging your cars out the driveway and here I am, blazing sunshine on your rainy, snowy parade. It's not my fault, blame global warming.
At any rate, while most of my fellow TWDers are enjoying these fabulous Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins with a bowl of chili, I just couldn't fathom eating a steaming bowl of anything on a day like today. Did I mention how hot it is here (don't hate)? They are delicious on their own in their sweet and spicy way and maybe next time I make them will be chili weather (chili/chilly?). For now I think some Chilled Carrot Soup and a muffin might really hit the spot.

Love the confetti look these muffins have. Until this week, Nashville was in the 60s and 70s. Blizzard-free. I keep thinking it's spring, because I'm easily confused.

I am bitter and jealous and freezing cold in Connecticut. I think carrot soup was probably a good choice.....enjoy!

Well, it's quite cold here compared to where you are but the muffins go well with any kind of weather, I think. :)
