Blah-g

Y'all, I have just been tired in my spirit lately, the kind of tired that makes anything I think about writing on here seem like too much effort. Ever get like that? But it has been nice just taking a break from all of it and getting back into school mode. I have really been enjoying my days home with the just the little ones and have been baking and cooking up a storm-I love to cook when it becomes Fall for some reason! Hmm, maybe the reason is my lack of cooking anything real for most of the Summer and I am trying to soothe my guilty conscience....maybe, whatever. But I miss my big girls when they are gone, too. Cannot win in the parenting arena sometimes!! Little Miss Thing 4 has become a wild thang with half a (non-purple) tooth since I last wrote and pulling up and cruising on EVERYTHING! Hello child, you are only 10 months old you crazy loon, sit back down please!! But I do feel like we have finally turned a corner and are really starting to enjoy our newly re-formed family. Yes, it has been a rough road of adjusting and attaching for all of us. I have a blog post written in my head about that and maybe if y'all are nice to me, I might just put it onto the actual blog one of these days, ha. Does anyone else do that, compose posts in your head that just never seem to make it out of there?? It is just often easier to type out a quick sentence on Facebook instead, mostly because I have the attention span of a gnat and I cannot focus for more than 5 seconds. Anyhoo, since I got nuthin' real exciting to say right now because I am a lazy blogger, I will leave you with my one of my favorite, super-easy, super-yummy Fall recipes I have made thus far:

Pumkin Muffins

1 can pumpkin
1 box spice cake mix

Mix together, plop in batter muffin tins and bake according to cupcake directions on cake mix (maybe 20ish minutes? I cannot remember and I am too lazy to walk the 15 feet to the kitchen to check). DE-STINKIN-LICIOUS!!! It is like eating Fall.

(Apparently really blurry Fall, sorry)

Sounds YUMMY!! I can't wait to try them...

I would LOVE to hear the blog post that is in your head. I also have posts in my head and I actually have one about our struggles too.

Mmm, I love easy food. So do you add the other stuff to the cake mix (like oil, egg and water?)

My kids would love these, with some hot apple cider. Dang, shouldn't have skipped breakfast.

jody said...

nope, just the powdered mix and the can of pumkin-it is pretty thick to stir and take a little muscle :), but it tastes SOOOOO good!

Hey Jody, I do that ALL THE TIME, have blog posts in my head that I'm too chicken to write, for fear that I'll regret it, be misunderstood, or not mean it a few weeks later. sigh. I'm gonna friend you on FB!! XOXO
