We’ve been talking about traditions at A Mom’s Year. One that we’ve had for a while is Muffin Mondays. Some food-related traditions have been hard for me to stick with (whatever happened to Taco Tuesdays?) but for some reason, Muffin Mondays have stuck. Maybe it’s because I can make the batter the night before so all I have to do in the morning is pop the muffins in the oven. Or maybe it’s because I can use a mix if I have to. It still counts. (See “Good Enough Cupcakes.”) There’s just something about starting off the week with warm, comforting muffins that does the heart good.
Lily helped me make the Buttermilk Chocolate Chip muffins from One Ordinary Day. Ours turned out with a texture somewhere between a muffin and a scone. I’m not sure if that’s how they’re supposed to be, but they were delicious! We’ll definitely make these again.
I made some pork sausage patties to go with the muffins. I just added a little salt and pepper and sage. Turkey would work great, too. Some people add maple syrup to their sausages. Would you like that or would it be too sweet?
