Actuallly, she's just watching me bake. I'm so fascinating. I obviously bore Sierra to tears.
I discovered a delicious tea this week that I found at my local health food store.
Pomegranate Echinacea Tea
It is so delicious.
So, I made a pot and will enjoy a cup while I solve the problems of the world with my dining-room company, Annie.
And to have with tea, I baked some whole wheat, blueberry banana muffins and they fill my cookie jar today.
1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together flours, wheat germ, baking soda and salt.
In a large bowl beat butter and sugars with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs.
In another bowl, mash bananas with a fork (3/4 cup) stir in milk and vanilla.
With a mixer, alternately add flour mixture and banana mixture to butter mixture. Fold in blueberries.
Divide mixture among muffin cups. Bake for 25 minutes.
Labour Day weekend is upon us and I will be busy once again with cat-sitting for three days. We are to have a wet weekend, but from all the fireworks I heard tonight as people were testing them out, I doubt that will stop any celebrations.
I'm with the dog...spare me.
"Happy Weekend, everyone".
