Lately I've been on the look out for breakfast ideas that are more substantial than a granola bar,
but just as easy to serve. During this last month, and right after the baby comes home,
I know I won't exactly have the energy to be whipping up bacon and omelets in the mornings!
We already have the standard toaster waffles, pre-cooked sausage (grosses me out, but Reli loves it : /), and some mini pancakes that I made and froze awhile back, but it just doesn't seem like enough variety.
And since I'm not quite ready to resort to pop-tarts and doughnuts (not yet at least!), I've started baking as many different muffins as I can come up with. They are the perfect thing to pull right from the freezer, microwave for a few seconds, and feed to your "starving" child in the mornings!
It started with your standard blueberry. Then came the banana nut, pumpkin cream cheese, cinnamon sugar, apple crumb, and even a loaf of cinnamon raisin bread. But my latest experiment has been these
I don't say experiment because I expected them to fail, but only because Ant gave me a rather quizzical look when I told him what I was making. His response was something along the lines of "Those sound.....interesting." That's a rather un-expected statement coming from a guy who almost NEVER turns down any kind of food!
(Salmon & Tofu are the only things I know he "doesn't like", and I've still seen him eat those.)
Luckily, the muffins ended up tasting wonderful, but they have also "mysteriously" disappeared from the freezer. Oh well, guess I'll just have to make another batch.
Any other flavors you'd suggest adding to my stockpile?
I can never have too many muffins!
