I Missed You Yesterday

Yesterday was Tuesday. There was less snow, but it certainly wasn't gone.

Yesterday I made muffins. I made Banana Oatmeal muffins and Banana muffins with some sugar stuck to the top. I made Apple Chunk muffins and Apple Oatmeal muffins. The kids put together some of Brian's favorite Sugar 'n Spice muffins that we had to bake in mini-muffin tins because they're quicker than I was with the dishes. We made Blueberry muffins. We were going to make Raisin Bran muffins and Bran Muffins Disguised as Something Raiden Will Eat, but we ran out of steam.

I dumped bran into all the muffins we did make. The kids were skeptical. They lost all composure and called me crazy when I made Banana muffins with bran and mayo. They're good, really. Rai ate one. The sugar we stuck to the top helps you get over the 'but it's got mayo in it!' hump.

Then I froze the muffins. Individually. My Save-The-World-From-Excess-Packaging tendencies were terribly offended. The whole point to this exercise was to have a somewhat healthy, high fibre option available for Raiden at a moment's notice. Kidney problems are exasperated by constipation and we're trying to not have kidney problems. Its just one thing in a collection of proactive habits to make sure we have established.

Now, if I was a savvy blogger, I'd have pretty pictures of our muffin making. I have to admit, I did think of it. But then there was the back-up of dishes and the salt spill and the blueberry emergency.

This is all I've got. Muffins wrapped in foil, labeled by Kori, stacked in the deep freeze.
