Manic and a little muffin monday


muffin monday, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

Yes, we have already started Muffin Monday here. This week we made the old TX neighbor's favorite: Mexican surprise. These are a cornmeal based savory muffin with a taco dip on the side! Yummy!

Manic Monday brought to us by the talented Fleur-de-Lisa.



Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it? Not really, if I want to do something I usually do it. I would love to go to one of those long weekend cooking schools like at a cool bed and breakfast. Ventana Inn used to have one...but now they only have a photo safari that looks awesome as well!



If you could make any fictional character come to life, which one would it be? Maybe Cinderella (pre-marriage to the prince)...I would put that child to work on the laundry...and hauling the vacuum up and down the stairs!



If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, which store would it be and how long would it take you to spend the $10,000? Easy peasy.....Crate and Barrel to get my dining room furniture. Then Pottery Barn to finish out the rugs and drapes.



Name three things you wanted as a child but never got. 1. Easy Bake Oven - my cousin had one and I was so jealous!

2. Fuzzy Pumper Barber shop- my kids have one a neighbor gave us ....now I know why I never had one as a child. That thing is messy!

3. Cabbage Patch Doll....my mom wasn't the fighting type...I remember seeing moms pulling hair over a doll once!

I never got the easy bake oven either...I think it has had a lasting effect. I did have a cabbage patch doll though. Still have it.

Love Livi in the green!

She's officially home - she's baking! :) I'm thinking someone should buy you an easy bake oven. They ROCKED. Well at least until their was mix. Once that ran out, it sucked.

Cook Livi looks totally in charge! I may have to ask you for the Mexican Surprise muffin recipe. They sound delicious...

I think we need to start a club...the Easy Bake Ovenless!

As usual the muffins sound delish!

I had an Easy Bake Oven AND a Cabbage Patch Doll LOL

More, More, More said...

a $10,000 shopping spree would be the answer to my prayers right now :)

Libby said...

I would like to formally submit my application to the Easy Bake Ovenless Club as well. (I always thought I was the only little girl who grew up without one!)

Fleur de Lisa said...

Those muffins sound delish! Livi looks like she is having so much fun.

I would love to do one of those photo safaris!

Mmmm, I love Crate and Barrel too. I am wanting a new dining room set myself.

Easy Bake Oven!!! Me too . . .

Looking back, it was probably a wise decision. But, sadly, the lack of one may have contributed to my seriously lacking skills at the stove . . .

I always wanted the easy bake oven too. I did have a cabbage patch doll, my mom got lucky in that my best friends mom offered to sell her one of the three she managed to get.

On a limb with Claudia said...

Gosh, I think you should have to share the recipes to these muffins! WOW! That sounds really delicious! AND look at Livi's beautiful teeth!

There's so much you didn't have. I hope adult life is better!
