I've been hunting for the PERFECT banana muffin recipe. Trying out several varieties in the last week. I made some whiz-bang muffins. They were good, but not quite what I'm looking for. Right now, there are Banana Crumb Muffins in my oven and I'm very optimistic. How can anything topped with brown sugar and butter be bad?
Wish me luck!
My nephews, ages 5, 3, and 1 are coming for an overnight stay in just under an hour. The thought of entertaining and feeding five children on my own for 8+ hours has me itchy. I know some women have that many every day. Or those who run a home daycare and have even more five days a week. We'll see how it goes, I'm sure they'll have lots of fun. I have bubbles, popsicles, and a movie or two planned. The interesting part will be this evening, when I think they all need to go to bed. That has me the itchiest!
So the baking is therapy, it's calming me down. Knowing I'll have a healthy, wholesome snack for them.
Wish me luck!
Edited to add: The kids were great. Energetic, but great. Busy, but great. The sleep was very light, but it was a good night all in all. The muffins? Really good. The only bad part was that I ate more of them than the children. B liked them, but the nephews were not crazy about them.
Mother's Day was lovely. We planted some flowers that the kids had given me and they gave me all sorts of lovely treats. I felt like the queen, just the way a mama should.
And yes, Mimi and Beck, send those recipes over my way. I would love to continue the quest. There seems to be no shortage here of over-ripe bananas. I keep buying the bananas and we keep not finishing them.
