I made a quick trip to the Fruit Stand Guy to get some fruit to add as mix-ins and was very excited to see that blueberries were only $2.00! Then, this happened….
Sometimes Healthy, Always Spilling
Oooooops. I guess that’s what happens when you live in NYC and have about 2 feet of counter space. Here’s what mix-ins bar set-up for both the Egg Muffins and the Mini Pancakes looked like…bit of a tight squeeze.
Mini Counter Space
Lots of mini-things going on in my mini kitchen.
Here’s what my Egg Muffin (Mini Omelets) menu looked like:
And here’s the Mini Pancake Muffin menu:
I put them all into muffin tins, using mini muffin tins only for the Festivus pancakes, crossed my fingers and threw them into the oven, which was preheated to 350 degrees.
As I waited, I got to work on this little disaster….
The Festivus mini muffins were finished first, so they had to wait on the window sill all by themselves…and I had to stop myself from eating them before the rest of their friends joined the party.
Luckily, I got to chow down on the cherry muffins…which didn’t quite “pan” out…
Guess there was too much liquid in the pie filling?
Here’s to making lemons out of lemonade!
The cherry pie filling pancake mess was the perfect pre-run fuel!
Also had a bit of an incident with the Buffalo tofu egg muffins
But in the end, despite some speed bumps along the way, I ended up with some beautiful Egg Muffins, Pancake Muffins and Mini Pancake Muffins!
The Festivus Mini Pancake Muffins not only looked adorable, but they tasted amaaazing. However, the Blueberry/Apple were a close second. They were so moist and fruity!
All of that baking was just the motivation I needed to enjoy a long-time-coming 12 mile run in Central Park. Despite the clouds, it was a gorgeous run. Snapped this pic along the way.
Well, I’ve decided to brave the rain for the opportunity to spend some quality time with my brother, who is in town this weekend. I originally planned on giving him some of my magical mini delights…but then I remembered that Brother Bear and I have quite different tastes in food. More on that later…Have a great Sunday! Stay dry
What’s your favorite way to spend a rainy day?
