I am becoming more ok with making small batches of food.
It used to be that I was hesitant on firing up the ovens to making a small single batch of cookies. Coming from a family with 6 brothers, I was used to ALWAYS making double batches. And by the time I would be done making them half of the cookies would be gone already.
Today I found a somewhat rotting banana on top of the microwave. I remembered I had left it there to eat Sunday morning. Sunday morning came and went and dear banana was left unnoticed. Now it’s Tuesday morning and I happened to resurface that now browning banana. (Sorry, no pics of banana. You have to use your imagination on that one)
Flipping through a cookbook searching for banana muffins, I came across banana bread and decided to improvise. Using only 1 banana, I whisked up a teeny batch and out came 7 doughy muffins with walnut crumbs on top! Ummm! Can’t you smell ‘um? 🙂
As I write I just wolfed down my second one (with butter!) and am contemplating a 3rd muffin…
Iced coffee goes quite well with muffins which makes me smile. We are quite satisfied with iced coffee these hot June days of 100 degrees.
I smile because in my house it’s just Jason and me. In my house
7, now 5 muffins will get eaten and not end up behind the fence out back. I smile because I can make small batches and it’s not a waste. If I would have made a full batch, which probably would have been 14 muffins we would have had to frozen them (which I do sometimes) or taken them to Jason’s work for others mouths to eat ( I do that sometimes too).
Here I (we) are smiling because I just had frozen yogurt. If you ever had frozen yogurt you know what I’m talking about.
I just found this picture and felt like posting it.
We’re at a place in downtown Waco called Oso’s.
Their motto is ‘Oh So Good’ – but in O-S-O there is no ‘g’. That frustrates me cause I don’t get it…

Well, I”m off to pound my bread dough – which you might have spotted in my one pic… I’m making 2 loaves and planning on giving the other loaf to Dad & Phil. 🙂
I might just have that 3rd muffin…
