I made blueberry muffins Saturday. I did a tray of full-size muffins, a tray of small muffins, and a half dozen of these overly-twee mini-muffins. :) The wrappers are reusable silicone cups, so none of that annoying sticking paper. Timothy helped make these, by the way. He does enjoy cooking when in the right mood.

We have had some lovely weather in the past few days. This is a view from one of my work's buildings. (I'm currently meeting folks in 3 separated buildings so getting some walking exercise.)

Who's surprised by my choice in root beer brands? :) To tell the truth, there is one brand I prefer over this (Jack's Black) but BevMo didn't have it. Still, this stuff is pretty good and you get the bonus rattiness in it. Figuratively.

I just don't get putting jelly in a peanut butter sandwich.

For me, with a good bread (latest favorite is Dave's Killer Good Seed bread), peanut butter is the essence of the sandwich. Jelly makes it go all slidey and drippy. The sugar hides the natural peanut flavor.

Timothy likes jelly in his sandwiches.

I just made a peanut butter sandwich and then ignored my instincts and put a nice dollop of homemade grape jelly (harvested from a friend's vineyard) on it. And cut off the crusts and tucked it in his lunchbox.

'Cause that's what parents do.
