Where was I yesterday?
Discombobulated. It was terrible. I started a plan, and I couldn’t even start it.
If you know me on facebook, I had a bodily invasion from Jabbah the Hut. (Forgive me -Star Wars fans, I have no clue how to spell it’s name!) If you are unfamiliar with the creature, he’s this bog oozy blob. Attractive.
So, my inner Jabbah surfaced and I fought back. How? Coffee.
It worked-so I decided I was going to re-arrange the house furniture. In order to accomplish this- I needed to get a bookcase for lil’ one’s room.
I bought a bookcase.
I returned the bookcase-no hardware to put it together.
I bought another.
Guess what I have to do in a hour?
Return it. A part is broken on it.
I have a few choice words in this situation: ^$@(&*@#* !!!!!!!
But, there’s worse things than that. And better things- like my Father in law- an update!!
He had his surgery and is recovering just fine. Thank you all for your prayers and kind wishes. Big hug to all! (If you are a huggy-type. If not, it’s cool- thank you still.)
Well, I managed to make something up despite it all.
Coconut cream muffins.
really, they are not muffins.
But, let’s call em muffins so we can justify them as breakfast food.
I would equate them with a doughnut.
How come donuts aren’t dessert?
Why can’t cupcakes be breakfast? Why are eggs mainly a breakfast food?Who made all that stuff up anyway?
I don’t know either. I will google “Who made the unwritten food rules?”
I feed my daughter beans and rice for breakfast. That is a breakfast food. They serve it at Denny’s (in Costa Rica) so that makes it so.
Oh!!! Remember my talk about parrots?
This is me:
No, not a cockatoo. I am researching the best bird for our family. My hubby wants one that can join him on the boat. Maybe he’s not a cave man- I think he’s more of a pirate. Nah, pirates eat fish…don’t they? I have to really be lucky for my man to eat fish. He’s a cave-man pirate, I think.
I have a stack of books. Now, it’s bird books and food. The librarian must think I have issues.
Don’t we all? Some people’s issues are just more fun than others.
I like my issues. They’re fun.
Now, I will have a few more pictures later on also, You can read this post twice. It’s okay.
I don’t have all my photos taken, and I didn’t want to disappoint y’all this mornin’.
UPDATE! The “better” pics are posted. Yipppppeeeeee!
I love it now.
I also loved to eat paste as a kid.
I hate it now.
Tastes change, I guess.
But, I did.
You want paste consistency, not glue!
Coconut cream muffins: from Stephanie Moon
In a bowl, combine:
1 1/4 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
mix together and set aside.
Now, in another bowl, combine until fluffy:
1 stick butter
3/4 c sugar
now mix in:
Add to that:
2/3 c half and half
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 3/4 c flaked coconut
Add the flour mixture and pour batter into prepared muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 18-30 minutes
For the glaze, mix 3 c shifted powdered sugar with 2-3 tbs cream or milk until you get a thick, smooth paste. Dip cooled muffins into the glaze and top with toasted coconut, if desired. It’s a good idea to top em with coconut- so the people that don’t like coconut know it’s coconut beforehand. Or you can just tell them, I suppose.
