I was going to assume that you were abducted in the parking lot. LOL. Gotta love that Grumpy. Last evening Grumpy picked me up at the office and we went Lowes to try to find our bathroom vanity set etc. and then to Mama Lucias for dinner. Mama Lucias was an awesome meal. Two people were fed for a total of $38 plus tip! We walked out of that place two very happy but stuffed people! Grumpy drove me back to the campus parking lot, let me out, and left. I had driven about two miles when I felt my cell phone (which was in my jacket pocket) vibrate. I answered to Grumpy saying “If you didn’t answer I was going to go back and make sure you weren’t abducted in the parking lot!” ha ha. Apparently he tried two times prior to my answering and I never felt the phone vibrate. He even left a message telling me that he was going to call me again and if I didn’t answer that time he was going to assume I was abducted and go back to the parking lot. LMBO.
Must be he was afraid he would miss out on these muffins if I didn’t make it home…..
I had some Post Great Grain’s cereal in our cupboards and I wanted muffins this morning for breakfast. While I am a total muffin girl my very favorite muffin is a bran type muffin with dried fruit in it….like Nanny’s Raisin Bran Muffins. I didn’t have raisin bran but I had some Post Great Grains Pecan, Date & Raisin cereal that I needed to use up so I started mixing and 30 minutes later I had some moist, warm, yummy muffins for breakfast!
I left a couple for Grumpy next to the coffee maker and packed the rest up to bring to the office. Every time I do this I think of Mags and how much I wish I could be one of her hubby’s co-irkers. I also wish I had come up with that term!
Pecan, Date, Raisin and Bran Muffins
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups great grains cereal (I do not crush)
1-1/2 cup Almond flavored Silk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Put cereal in large bowl and pour almond milk over cereal. Let sit about 5 minutes. Mix in egg, vanilla, oil. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour wet ingredients into center of well. Gently fold mixture until it is “just wet” and spoon into 12 muffin cups (either line with paper or spray pan with cooking spray). Bake for 15-20 minutes (mine took just 15).
