I think I always feel these things before a new baby... we probably all do, huh?
We are done with school and mostly all other major commitments, I have no more energy to spend on household projects or preparations, and so I find that we are just kinda... doing nothing. Which is actually super nice. I made muffins twice in the past two days and if that doesn't say not doing much then I don't know what does. On my future agenda for today is *watch Bachelorette, *eat ice, *maybe nap. Sounds so nice, right? It is. I like this last part of pregnancy. It's always rush, rush, rush then c a l m. The calm is where it's at.
The calm is also not conducive to exciting blogging, it seems! I'll move it right along...
I realized today how much I like my staple muffin recipe and I thought you might, too.
Muffins. Wow. New lows.
Actually, leftover oatmeal muffins. Even lower lows! (sorry ::grits teeth:: pushing through)
My new breakfast plan includes making a giant double batch of oatmeal at the start of the week. So, one day we have fresh oats, another day we have leftover oats, and another day we have leftover oatmeal muffins. If I ever feel passionate no-grain feelings again please remind me of this very simple b-fast solution that covers 3 entire days a week, THX. Let me assure you- these muffins are easy and they are the bomb. I stole the recipe from Amanda over at Soule Mama... here it is. From her to me to you.
1 cup leftover oatmeal
1/2 cup milk
1 T melted butter
2 T baking powder
4 T honey/maple syrup/agave/sugar whatever
1.5 cups flour
1/2 cup extra whatever (berries, nuts, chocolate chipssssss)
20 min at 400 and consume.
The past two days I have indulged all the whims and made walnut/chocolate chip muffins and they were delicious. Both times. But I've also done blueberry, fig and vanilla, cinnamon almond chia, etc etc etc forever.
All the wins except the crying bc you can't have 3 muffins part.
(I had 3 but don't tell her) (That's the only part that has to do with muffin tops, present and future)
