Muffin Mania!

Blatantly stealing an idea I had read online somewhere, the girls and I embarked on a muffin baking extravaganza today. Our goal? To freeze scads of muffins for quick-n-easy school morning breakfasts or lunchbox snacks. We're not what you might call morning people around these parts. Our school morning breakfasts tend to be heavy on the snarling and whining and light on the homemade baked goods.

After lunch Bear and Bug swung right into assembly line action with me: mixing dries, creaming butter and sugar, snitching chocolate chips, and spraying enough Pam on the muffin tins to asphyxiate a cat. (Come to think of it, I haven't seen Maisy in awhile...).

We made twenty each of plain, chocolate chip, and cinnamon streusel muffins. They are frozen and awaiting two crabby early morning schoolgirls' breakfast whims.

Yummy! I made a batch of the basic muffins Saturday to share with my friend Bette, who was coming over Sunday after church, to pick up a copy of the recipe you gave me. She loved them and plans on baking a batch for when her life long friend, Dottie, comes to visit with her for three weeks the latter part of this month.

Saturday I made some of the potatoes you made for us for our evening meal. I need a little more practice with this recipe.

This weekend I plan on making some soda bread. I purchased some more honey and Tom can hardly wait to dig into the bread.

Thanks for sharing your delicious recipes.
