Duck Butts and other topics

He doesn’t look like me.  He doesn’t act like me.  He has his father’s foul language.  He loves anything with tires and especially if it has a trailer.  There is only one way to tell he is mine.

He has a duck butt.  That is the technical term for hair that grows to a point in the back.  Do you have one?  Also, how many people have a second toe that is shorter than their first?  Am I deformed?  Aside from the obvious, of course.

In other news, a new recipe for muffins has been created.  In honor of my husband’s birthday today he wanted to take muffins to work for his birthday treat.  He wanted blueberry – a no brainer, and apple cinnamon.  So here we go!

Peel 2 medium apples and cut off the roundy parts.  Now pretend you are Yan…

and chop it all up, chop it all up.  Look longingly at the apple and wish there was too much so you could eat some.

Throw some butter into a pan and start it melting.  Add apples and cook a little bit.  Add sugars and look at it for a while.  Worry about it burning before it is done and add 1/2 cup of water.  Now cook it until water is almost gone and apples are beginning to soften.  But not mushy!  We don’t want mushy!

Go to the cupboard and pull out your grandmother’s favorite mixing bowl.  Smile because you get to use it every day.  Start to tear up because you only get to use it because she isn’t using it anymore.  Leave the apples to cool in the mixing bowl while you go check the calendar and see why you are so Ramotional.  Anyone else love the Real Housewives?

Now add one package of millionaire muffin mix that you had stashed in the freezer.  You didn’t have any?  Go here to print out the recipe and make some.  You will thank yourself later.  Also throw in 1/2 tsp cinnamon.  or more.

Check the post-it you have inside your cupboard door and add those ingredients as well.

Now use a large cookie scoop and put muffin mix into 12 muffin cups.  I would rather you use a stoneware muffin pan without liners but do whatcha gotta do baby.  I used liners this time because they were going to work with my husband and who knows what surface they will be set on before being consumed!  And it was pretty.

Just for fun sprinkle on a little bit of oats and some brown sugar.  I like muffins to have a little crust on top.  Now bake at 400* for 18 minutes if you are somehow using my oven and my pan.  If you are using your own oven and pan, check them and take them out when done.

I am a wife and a mommy. I'm still trying to figure out how that happened.

  1. The muffins look great! I have to say, we always called them “duck tails.” My son’s would braid itself when his hair was getting longer. Very cute picture (gotta love Dora).
