The other day I got my "Every Day with Rachael Ray" magazine, and as usual, Heath looked through it for things that sounded good to him. This is how the conversation went that evening.
Heath: "There is a recipe in there for Peanut Butter Banana muffins. That sounds good right?"
Me: "Yes, that does sound good, and I have some overripe bananas I need to use. I'll take a look at it."
Two days later I was drinking my coffee at around 6 a.m. and decided I would make the muffins, since the bananas long since had more brown than yellow on their peel, and we were out of cereal and bread anyway. I grabbed the magazine, tore out the page with the recipe on it, and proceded to mix up the ingredients. One egg, 2 mashed bananas, 2 Tbsp. honey, 1/4 cup peanut butter, water, whole wheat flour, baking powder. As I was mixing I thought "Wow, these are healthy too. There is no sugar in them at all." Popped the 3 dozen muffins into the oven and and waited with pride to feed them to Heath.
Yep, thats right, ladies and gentlemen, I served DOG TREATS to my entire family for breakfast...
Are you finished laughing yet? Because I have a defense...WHO IN THE HOLY CRAP DESIGNS RECIPES FOR THEIR DOGS??? It never in a million years occured to me that any recipe found in a RECIPE magazine would be for THE DOG. Secondly, it used all the same ingredients used in HUMAN treats, so I had no reason to question it, and I didn't even look at the whole page, I only saw the recipe. IT WAS EARLY and I hadn't finished my coffee yet!
Sigh...you're right. My excuses sound lame. I know it too. So, because I am able to admit when I do something stupid and really funny...I am giving you this chance to laugh with me...at me.
