I think I have said it before but I typically don’t buy boxed mixes. They kind of freak me out not knowing what is in them. Plus I have no idea how long they have sat on the shelves. I normally have all of the ingredients to make whatever my heart desires on hand so it is never really a problem. That being said in the last 24 hours I found myself surrounding by not just one but TWO boxed mixes.
It all started last night when I went over to Kari's house. In general, these mid-week get togethers consist of dinner and a movie. Most of the time in PJs, you know, the quintessential girl’s night IN outfit. Our movie planning was a bit off with the Netflix schedule. Rather than trying to shift through the options for instant play we opted for a different form of entertainment – BAKING!
Did I also mention she made this for dinner?
Upon closer inspection though I realized this was a great, quick, and healthy breakfast treat. And the box only made 6 muffins, perfect for two people. I know what you are thinking. No, we didn’t eat all 6 THAT morning. But most muffin recipes are for a dozen and I am always freezing some because that is just too many muffins for two people to eat before they start to turn.
OK back to the muffin mix box.
Another genius idea!
