I’m going to jinx myself: tonight was good. Our area is flooded, so many of my friends and family are trying to keep their basements dry. But despite last night’s epic five-year-old-Monkey-meltdown and subsequent restrictions/consequences; we managed to have very minimal melt downs, played ball with the dogs (inside, the yard is a water logged, sodden mess), cleaned a bit, and I even finally baked my banana muffins!
Yup, totally going to jinx myself. It’s started to rain. Should have just kept my mouth shut!
I’ve been jamming my way through my CSA fruit share as, when I ordered my fruit share, we were a family of four. Not so much now and there is way too much for us to eat. My share this week was blueberries, sour cherries, and apricots. The blueberries will be eaten and/or frozen, same with the apricots. But what to do with the cherries? More jam? I had some rather “dead” bananas and decided to add some diced cherries to banana bread muffins.
I based my recipe off No-Fat Banana Applesauce Muffins. Couple changes: I used brown sugar not white, added the cherries (about 1/2 cup pitted and diced). I think next time I would increase the cinnamon and maybe add vanilla.
