I Am My Mother's Daughter

Tomorrow is Andrew's snack day at school, which also means he gets to be the line leader. It's a very exciting day.

Last Sunday, I made pumpkin spice muffins for the following Muffin Monday. Andrew liked them so much he asked if that is what he could take for his snack day. No problem, I can make more for his class.

Today we were at the store and I decided since he was taking these to school that I would use paper muffin cups. I never buy muffin cups as I just spray my muffin tin... No real reason, I just do. Anyway, I found that muffin cups are $.69 for 90 cups – way cheaper that I thought they would be. And after using them now and not having to clean my muffin pan... I am converted.

Anyway, after I put the paper cups into the muffin pans, I caught myself absent mindedly repositioning the cups so that no two alike colors were next to each other.


That is what I use to do with my mom when we made blueberry muffins before gymnastic meets when I was little. I haven't used muffin cups in years and years. Yet, there I was rearranging the cups. Heaven forbid my muffins bake next to another like-colored muffin.

So silly how some things stick with you.

That is SO funny!!! I'll have to see what I do next time I use those (which isn't very often)! :)

I guess you could have worse habits from childhood! If you are making more muffins than you have tins these make baking faster because you can take them out almost immediately and re-use the pan right away.
