Eat your vegetables! … or donuts. Whatever.
My daughter had no idea that there were veggies in her baked goods. Ha!
I have been making this particular recipe for YEARS. And today, I blew it while we were at the grocery store wandering around in the veggie department. I mentioned that we needed to also get (and I quote) “some zucchini for the donuts”.
What a dumb thing to say outloud. She gave me “the look” of disbelief and said (rather loudly) (in public): “YOU PUT VEGGIES IN MY BAKED GOODS”???
Well. Yes. Yes I do. And in my defense, you are healthy and up to this very minute you didn’t know the difference.
