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!
