Raisin Bran Muffins

So this weekend, Sir Streusel and I were out and a song came on the radio.

 I said, “I like that song.  It makes me want to get my groove on.”

 Sir Streusel responds, “I like it too.  It’s snazzy!”

I respond, “Snazzy?”

Sir Streusel, “Yes, snazzy.”

I said, “You do know you just dated yourself, like, really dated yourself.”

Sir Streusel, “Your hair looks really pretty today.  Let’s forget I said ‘snazzy’.”

Snazzy dude, like....snazzy
Snazzy dude, like….snazzy

We have had glorious weather this week!  Windows open, doors open and the girls having a ball playing outside.

Paloma is happy and smiling soaking up the sunshine. Stella is, well, Stella.

Sir Streusel travels during the week and gets so tired of the same breakfast buffets in the hotels.  I like to put breakfast treats in his suitcase to help him with his breakfast “ho-hums”.  One of his favorite muffins is the Raisin Bran Muffin.


It is a hearty muffin that will ‘stick to your ribs’ as my daddy would say.  Eric’s mom use to bake these muffins for him.  She would bring them over in a ziplock bag to put in the freezer.  I do the same thing.  They freeze beautifully.  I pack him a few in his suitcase to jazz up his hotel breakfast.  You know you have a good man when a little muffin with raisins in it makes him happy.  You also know you have a good man when he uses the word ‘snazzy’ and you laugh at him and he laughs right back.  That is one of the many things I love about him.  We laugh, we laugh a lot, we laugh at stupid stuff, we laugh at ourselves, we laugh at each other,  and we laugh with each other. 

Get 'snazzy' and bake these muffins.
Get ‘snazzy’ and bake these muffins.

Love ya,
