Watch Out Martha Stewart!

Okay, everyone knows that Chris is the cook in the family. I love that about him. He takes such good care of Sofia and I in the food department. :) On a rare, and I mean RARE occassion, you can find me in the kitchen putting a meal together. The thing about me and cooking is that I just am not a fan of putting lots of different foods together to make a meal. It is just too many types of food. Let's be honest - I don't even like my food on my plate to touch! I would much rather just make a tasty treat - pie, cake, monkey break - you know all the stuff that is terribly bad for you.

Every Thursday morning, I meet two of my good friends that I work with for coffee and breakfast. It allows us to have an hour once a week to catch up, vent, laugh, and escape. It is the easiest day of the week to get up. :) This week, it is my turn to bring a bite to eat and all I could think about was chocolate chips on my way home from work tonight. I got a taste in my mouth for scones and called my step-mom for her recipe (best scones in the WORLD!). I realized too late, however, that I was missing a key ingredient and couldn't make them. I was bummed. So, I jumped on my favorite search engine and typed in "chocolate chip recipes" and voila! Chocolate chip muffins....FROM SCRATCH!

Yeah, that's right. I, MEGHAN DANIEL, MADE CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS FROM SCRATCH!

I know your mouth is watering....

Atta Girl, Meghan. You are a good baker and I'm sure the girls enjoyed them. Had to giggle about the thumb incident. Isn't that just how it goes...

I didn't realize we had such an important thing in common...our men are the cooks and we're the bakers. I don't know about you but I rather like it that way! Your muffins look delicious! I may need to make something like that this weekend while our visitors are here (Connie, Roger & David). I have a feeling they'd be quite the hit!

p.s. Hope your finger feels better today!

At least you don't make the Biscuits and Gravy - that will really burn your fingers and your hands! I love that you bake - the only thing I can bake is Martha White Self Rising Corn Bread and you, Chris and I are the only one's that eat it!

Meghan, you don't give yourself enough credit. You do plenty in the Kitchen and make sure that Sofia is getting more vegitables than you and growing strong. Plus, I enjoy the cooking!
