Kissed in my sleep

For some reason this week I have been so tired.  I shouldn't have been since I had just finished vacation, but I was.  Several nights this last week I was in bed by 8 at the latest.  I went up with the excuse I was going to watch TV because I didn't want to watch what Grumpy was watching.  Last night I headed upstairs and was promptly followed by little Rudy Rut-ton.  He saw me head upstairs and he raced right ahead of me and was on the bed already like he had been there all along!  I had turned the TV on and sat on the bed with my Cooking Light magazine and little Rudy Rut-ton when a few short minutes later Grumpy walks in with his laptop.   Aww, Grumpy wanted to be near me.  lol.

I fell asleep shortly after 9 PM leaving Grumpy with the TV and laptop to himself.  Some short time later I felt something touch me and I heard this sound like a smooch..  I had been kissed!  Well, there was only one person in the house who could kiss me and that was Grumpy!  Now if I weren't getting old and tired, I might not have rolled over and continued to sleep.  lol.  But I am old and tired!  In any case I thought about his gesture when I woke up this morning.  That was a side of Grumpy that a person doesn't normally see.  His soft side.  One he wants us to think doesn't exist.  Well, I got ya now Grumpy.  I knew you were capable of some gush!

So, in a nice gesture to him this morning (and feeling somewhat guilty because I just continued to sleep after he kissed me and didn't kiss him back) I made these mini baked donut muffins.  This recipe has been all the rage on allrecipes.com recently and I decided I had to find out if they were all "that".  Well, I must say, they are all "that".  These were the most perfect little bites I had eaten in a long while.  The coolest thing about them?  No eggs.  Just butter sugar, milk, nutmeg, flour, baking powder, more butter and some cinnamon sugar.  It helps to have a mini muffin pan too.  :)  An amazing recipe - and you should try it out!  Find the Mini Baked Donut Muffin Recipe on allrecipes.com.

Are you sure it wasn't little Rudy Rut-ton that kissed you in your sleep:D Not that we don't see right through Grumpy's tough exterior, just don't tell him we said so.
