FINE DINING

Orange Pineapple muffins with cinnamon sugar on top!
 
 these were  easy and good at breakfast as they are amazingly not overly sweet. Even Milo who won't get near fruit liked them!

the recipe is here:  pineapple sour cream muffins 

 Michele mentioned her recipe for quick biscuits last Thursday, so I made some. I watched 3 videos on making two ingredient biscuits and melded them together to make mine.

the cut off dough edges were rolled into wee crescent rolls!

1 cup Self rising flour (I added salt and BP to my regular flour) to one cup heavy cream. Mix, pour onto floured silicon sheet, press out into about a 3/4 inch thick rectangle, cut into 9 squares, place on baking sheet. 

Here is where I veered off, I brushed the tops with butter and cream from the measuring cups, started them at 425, then turned down to 375 after 5 min, for 15 more. Til they are golden. 

Light, fluffy and perfect for sausage biscuit breakfast

and then there were two...

Milo's Moment

Do I smell lunch?

Milo: heyyyy, nobody took my order!! I want a turkey sandwich, in a bowl, with sweet potato fries!

Mama: sorry honey, did you eat your kibble yet? 

Milo: eck! I'll just have what you're having, turkey what I smells, don't worry about stacking it up just toss it in a bowl. If you put it on a plate, cut into bite size pieces pweeze!

Mama: I gave you some sweet potato!

Milo: On DA FLOOR.... like a dog eats... the presentation here is bad!

Mama: ahem, I see the potatoes are gone...

Milo: from the goodness of my heart I ate them so you don't feel sadness Mama

Mama: ohhhhh.... for me.... such a good boy!

Milo: yep! tha's me, "good boy"! Let's talk about that turkey sandwich now... then I'll continue my nap

it's been really cold here

remember to let Mama know if you do a list too like these nice people!

  3. Meditative drawing... is that what that's called - I swear, I used to do that when I was a kid & find myself every now & then just making those squigglies & coloring them in - I like that.. Meditative drawing - makes sense

  4. I made muffins this week too - cranberry orange. I added almond extract too, and I think it made them even better than usual. The pink lights on your mantle must make it very cheerful. I didn't even get out my Valentine quilts this year. It's so cold and grey that I just couldn't get into it.
