I woke up again not well, headache, stomachache, etc, and thought it might be nice to make peach muffins for breakfast. Without being truly awake, I just started to follow the Basic Buttermilk Muffin recipe in Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, using the Fresh Fruit Muffin variation. I remembered making these before and they were quite good, only I didn’t remember how long ago that was.
I scooped out some whole wheat flour (it was supposed to be whole wheat pastry flour…but that’s what I had) from I don’t know when. It smelled, um…a little dusty. I threw it out and found a “new” bag I must have gotten to replace the first one, but even that expired a year ago. Then there was the bag of peaches that I obviously hadn’t checked on in a week. Out of three, I got almost enough fruit. I threw out two bags of shriveled frozen fruit, two jars of old baking powder, didn’t even have enough vanilla, but I still went through with my plan to make muffins.
Well, I know they were good the last time I made them. Sorry to Deborah Madison…all the recipes I’ve tried from this book have been good. I just didn’t do her proud this time around. That’s all I’m going to say about that! 🙂
