Okay........ here are a couple of recipes that I've been meaning to blog about but never had the chance. The first is a muffin recipe that can be used by Weight Watchers but unfortunately........... not for my low carb peeps. For weight watchers....... I think these are like 1 point and man are they da bomb! Here ya go:
Pumpkin Spice Muffins
- 1 Box spice cake mix
- 1 15 oz. can pumpkin
Dump both ingredients into your mixer and mix. Stick in a muffin pan....... I line mine with cupcake wrappers to keep from having to wash the muffin pan...... it's a pain you know. Anyhoo......... it should make about 18 muffins and they are 1 point each or there about.
They stay sooooo moist and yummy for days! My picky eaters like these and so do I and I'm really not a spice cake person.
Sweet Tea from a Georgia Girl
- 2 Family Size Luzianne tea bags
- 1 cup sugar......... yes, a whole cup!
You'll need to look at the pictures to get the amounts 'cause I've never measured the water part before. It's really a no-brainer. Just fill up a small saucepan with cold water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, add the 1 cup of sugar and the two tea bags to the pitcher. *Note: Fold the top of the tea bag in half and wrap the string around it. This keeps the darn thing from busting open and keeps you from getting stinkin' mad at seeing tea leaves floating around in your glass!
When water begins to boil remove from heat until all bubbles disappear. Pour into pitcher and swirl till sugar is just about dissolved. Let steep for about 10 minutes..... less if you can't stand it. Add enough water to to spout. Pour this over a glass that is completely full of ice and gulp it down like a man just finished mowing the yard in the middle of the summer in South Georgia! (Like my Man!)
Also had Amelia model some more clothes for my Etsy shop. Not an easy task taking pictures of a two year old running in a field then tracking her down, changing her all the while trying to keep her in a happy moood. I was exhausted after 10 minutes.
I'm trying to raise money for a Shop Hop that I will be going on with my two sisters, my Mom and Amelia at the end of this month. We'll be going to Florida to visit as many quilt shops as possible in 2 days. This means lots of fabric and lots of eating out a hotel or two. AHhhhhh....... don't it sound like the life? I'm leaving all of my PayPal money alone....... um, maybe, and saving it for the trip. I plan on taking my camera and blogging about each shop when I get back. Soooooo exciting.
Anyhoo...... I'm working on some goody bags for my Mom, sisters and even Amelia for the trip. I can't tell what all will be in there 'cause a couple of them read this....... hi Ya'll......... and I don't want to ruin the surprise. But, if you have any ideas as to what to add leave me a comment or throw me an email! I'll welcome any ideas at all! Thanks ahead of time!
Got to go cook for my Angel of a Husband who will be home in a few minutes after driving to Tennessee all night last night to bring his Dad home. Enjoy your weekend!
