A Week in Muffins
Life has been taking over lately. School, work, looming and uncertain future plans. There has been little sleep, little exercise, a LOT of episodes of Breaking Bad, many application essays written, and not enough vegetables.
Oddly enough, I did manage to make two different types of muffins. The first, whole wheat pumpkin seed muffins, are not worth discussing. The 2nd muffins - corn - are definitely worth a mention. I used Smitten Kitchen’s recipe, which is obviously why they were so delicious. I made three changes - 5 tsps of sugar instead of 6; apple sauce in place of oil; and a half cup extra corn.
Those corn muffins were served at the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge. I am a mentor for the ACS endurance program and I had the opportunity to prepare a meal for the cancer patients housed at Hope Lodge, a free residence for those receiving chemo treatments in the city who do not live nearby. George, my friend Lauren and I prepared vegetarian chili, brown rice, and cornbread and had the chance to chat with some residents and their families. Overall it was quite a meaningful night and best of all I got to wear that cool apron!
Blogging is back this week, so stay tuned.
