Can it possibly be that we have competition in the 'office cat' category?
I have added another bed just in case.
Audrey loves her Uncle Ed
Next to my own mom, my mother-in-law was one of the best bakers I ever knew. I have a book full of her recipes and I love them all. She is now in a nursing home and doesn't bake anymore but the memory of all her 'delectables' is very fresh in my mind. You know I love muffins...oh yes, and these bran muffins are the best ever.
You might as well be doing your body some good if you are going to dive into the carbs.
So, here goes...
In a large bowl add...2 beaten eggs to 1/2 tsp. salt. Add 2 cups of brown sugar and 1 cup butter.
Then add 2 cups of flaky bran cereal.
Mix in 2 cups of sour milk. (take 2 cups of milk and add 1 tsp. of vinegar to make sour milk)
In a separate bowl, 2 cups of all purpose flour
add 2 tsp. baking soda
Add to wet mixture
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. (24 muffins)
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until nicely brown on top
Oh, did you notice I found another pretty tea-cup in our local antique/thrift shop.
It is Phoenix China..made in England and it's short, round and has a large handle. It is stamped with wings and RCAF Trenton, Ontario.
Since my mom has passed on, my sister Diane has become, just like my mother was, an excellent baker. She has mastered pie crust and her pies melt in your mouth. We enjoy lots of her goodies and one of these days I'll give you her meat pie recipe for those who love 'tourtiere', (Diane's style).
I am staying close to home today as I have many beautiful cats to care for this weekend.
Cremes, tabbies, marmalades, grey's & calico's
I'm in kitty-heaven.
Which brings me to this...If the thought of 'heaven' doesn't make your eyes cross, do you think animals go to heaven?
It's always been a bit of a debate in my home so I'm wondering what you think. The Christian faith believe that animals do not have a 'soul'...hence...no heaven bound for them. Pfffffffffffffffffft! This doesn't sit right with me. When they add such beauty, innocence, love and peace to our lives, how can this be? Personally, if there are no cats or dogs in heaven, I'm really going to have to re-think my end of life plan. It doesn't sound so heavenly without them. And what would I do with myself? "No Kane...
...oh my goodness!"
I'm just having fun but seriously it did cross my mind.
How could Annie have the face of an 'ol soul if she doesn't have one?
"What do you think, Toad?"
Anyway...enjoy those muffins and add some honey on top to make them more 'heavenly'.
