I was able to sleep gloriously late this morning, and when I woke up, I was told in no uncertain terms that I was barred from the kitchen. Why? My daughter E. was cooking up a surprise for me, and my husband D. was not allowed to give away the secret.
I could hear lots of activity in there, culminating in the sound of the oven timer. Finally I was led, with my eyes closed, into the kitchen to enjoy what E. had made: Banana-Walnut Muffins! She had gone to my the blog, printed out the recipe, and made them by herself. All D. had done was help her get them into the oven. She even took the photo herself. All this, and it isn’t even my birthday!
I guess she couldn’t find the dates and didn’t want to ask me where they were, so she just left them out. Well, the muffins tasted great. We hadn’t had them since I posted the recipe way back in January, so I’d forgotten how good they are.
If you’ve got kids, get them cooking with you. Once they catch the cooking bug, you never know when they’ll make breakfast for you!
