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: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …
