The first shout out goes to all my ‘Loser friends at the Mequon Sendik’s … BIGGEST LOSER, of course! The participants at the Mequon store won the Sendik’s Biggest Loser challenge. Woot, woot! This recipe is for all of you Losers everywhere – keep it up! Mequon girls (ahem, you know who you are), don’t go celebrating over slices of cheesecake — make some of these muffins instead — you won’t believe they’re light. They’re rich and chocolatey and I have my kids fooled into thinking they’re cupcakes.
I have no frugal dinner suggestion to speak of today.
Because the nightly news, the DJIA, and the Brewers have me feeling like the apocalypse is drawing near.
Because I feel like planet earth is about to implode in an earthquaking, oil-slicked, Icelandic-volcano-ash-plumed ball of flames.
This morning I’m hanging out at home with two of my punks who are off of school for the long weekend. One of them will probably sleep until noon and the other is already wide awake, munching on Cheerios and playing on the computer. As for myself, I’m doing my best to avoid crummy chores such as folding laundry, making beds, and scraping blue toothpaste out of bathroom sinks. I’ve headed into the kitchen to see what kind of housework diversion I can cook up!
Oh, the joys of brown-bagging it. Even though the food selections have gotten much better now that my daughter’s in middle school, she is still not much of a hot lunch fan. When pressed (like when our fridge is void of deli meat and the pantry holds no bread), she’ll grudgingly settle for the cafeteria’s salad bar.
