Memories. Some old, some new.

It's been a nice Monday. A productive Monday. The kind of Monday that doesn't make me feel like it's a Monday. :) (The best kind of Monday.)

I made muffins! These simple muffins always take me back to being a little kid. You see I use to make them for my mom on special occasions like mother's day. So every time I stir up this mix I go back in time to when I was maybe 8 or 9 and I was making these with my brother Erick really early in the morning so that we could serve them to mom and dad in while they were still in bed. We use to put a teaspoon of jam in them. So simple and yummy!

Today I made them with some candied mango and pineapple plus a few raisins tossed it.

These candied mango and pineapple bits are new to the local market and once I saw them I knew they would be perfect for muffins! I'm so glad that more and more products are making their way into the everyday Indian market.

Anaiah was all excited when they came out of the oven. She pointed and said cake, cake! I told her she needed to wait till they cooled down. Every few minutes she would go up the the table and ask cake? cake?

Once she finally got to eat one she enjoy the first few bites but then hit a little piece of mango and that was the end of it. She does not like mango! Good to know!

I will be enjoying them as a snack and probably have some for breakfast tomorrow. They are not too sweet and taste great cut open with a little butter! They sure bring back memories! I hope that I can teach Anaiah how to make them when she is a little older, sans mango then of course!

I'll share the recipe if anyone wants it..

Another silly moment:
Today while reading an ABC book, we came to the I for ice cream cone.

Anaiah proceeded to lick the picture of the ice cream cone. I laughed and laughed and so she licked it over again. "Is that tasty Anaiah?"  - "It's yummy!" She cracks me up sometimes!

Happy Monday!
