Back to School
It turns out I had no reason to worry whatsoever. Sweet Hubby took Monday off and we enjoyed a rare date day. The girls have had a great week at school although Maddie's got off to a bit of bumpy start in her 1st class of her 1st day. When asked last night how they would rate their comfort/happiness at their new schools on a scale of 1 to 10, Emma said a 7 and Maddie 8! All things considered I'd say that's not too bad for the first week in a new school! As for me? It's been a surprisingly good week for me. I feel like I'm getting my grove back. I even plan on getting back to some Cottage type blogging next week. Gasp!
Back to School Muffins aka Monday Muffins aka Bad Day Muffins
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
1 cup chocolate chips
Grease 10 muffin cups or liners.
Preheat oven to 400°. Combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Place vegetable oil in a 1 cup measuring cup; add the egg and enough milk to fill the cup. Mix this with flour mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Fill muffin cups right to the top and sprinkle with demerara sugar. You can skip this part but my kids would have my head on a platter if I even considered it.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until done.
Then just in case those muffins weren't bad enough, I found some yummy fun treats at Trader Joe's. These yummy alphabet cookies
and these yummy bags of Kettle Corn. Truthfully I bought these because of the packaging. That is the most beautiful food packaging I've ever seen. And it's my favorite color! It made me want to design an entire party around it. Is that wrong?
