Thuggie Muffins

Big Dude took off for a training in RI, so it’s just me, Little Dude and the dogs for a couple days.  Little Dude hates Paleo food.  Dilemma.  What’s to eat?  Luckily I had leftover steak and sweet potato fries.  If you remember my squash post, this is a stretch for me.  But I made a honey mustard dip that was killer.  He had hot dogs.  Uncured chicken dogs, but don’t tell him that.  We hung out in our Thuggies, drank some tea and watched Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days.  Those movies make me laugh.


These banana bread muffins are amazing.  They might be Paleo, but I think if I eat 3 of them, it doesn’t equal out.  Ya know?  Oh, and I added a cup of walnuts and a cup of dark chocolate chips.  I think they’re like 76% cacao.  They’re delicious.  Baked for 24 minutes.  Especially with my morning latte.  Or afternoon tea.  Or whatever.


I have a huge problem.  I’m reading / listening to 4 books.  And I can’t decide which one to read tonight when I go to bed.  I’ve got the smutty supernatural novel, the autobiographical curiosity killer, the light and airy chick lit, and the other one…  I can’t remember.  Must have been awhile since I grabbed that one.

How the Internet saved my life and those lives of everyone around me today

Today was a day. You know how sometimes you get to tell someone off or deliver bad news to someone you don’t really like? Well today, I had to deliver really hard news to a couple different people, people that I really like, and I didn’t enjoy it. They all took it well and everything will be fine, I mean its Real Estate, not brain surgery, but still, setbacks suck. Especially when we don’t know the answer or sometimes even the right question.
So today, more than ever, I needed a cupcake(s). I Googled (I love that that is a verb) chocolate Paleo cupcakes and came across this recipe. I had everything in the house to make them and they sounded fabaloo, so off I went to the kitchen. I followed the directions to the T. I put the frosting in the fridge to cool while I made the cupcakes. But I couldn’t wait for the cupcakes to fully cool, yes my day was that rough, and I dipped the cupcake in the still warm frosting and took a giant bite. OMG. It was like chocolate molten lava cake in my mouth. I still can’t believe I didn’t eat the while pan.
But now you understand why there are no photos.
