Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Healthy Grain and Pomegranate Muffins

Whenever I have leftover cooked cereal, I like to make muffins. 
This is an easily adapted recipe; in fact, I used a basic muffin recipe from The Tightwad Gazette to come up with this one.




Healthy Grain and Pomegranate Muffins

2 c. cooked cereal 
3 c. flour
brown sugar (My leftover cooked cereal was already sweetened, so I think I used 1/4 c., but if your cooked cereal is unsweetened, you might add 1 cup.)
2 T. baking powder
1 t. salt
cinnamon (I didn't measure--somewhere between 1 t. and 1 T.)
2 c. milk
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 c. pomegranate arils (I used frozen)

Combine cooked cereal and dry ingredients.  Combine milk, oil, and eggs and add to dry ingredients. Fold in the pomegranate.  Fill 24 greased muffin tins, and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
   
Thanks for the smell (and taste) of warm muffins.

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
