Today is my husband’s 35th birthday! Luckily he has the day off from work, and my son has the day off from school. So a nice long weekend to celebrate for us! And in case you missed it over the weekend, we celebrated by buying a house! It is official now, we are under contract to purchase a home in the neighborhood we want. It will be a couple months before we can move in, but that is ok we have a plan! The house wasn’t on the market yet, and I completely forgot when we were in there, so I don’t have any pictures to share 🙁
I have another muffin recipe for you today. I found this one over at For the Love of Cooking. If you haven’t checked out Pam’s site, you really should. There are hundreds of amazing recipes on her site. This was no exception. There is a hint of banana flavor, they are chocolatey, moist, and delicious. I used white/semi-sweet chocolate swirl chips, because that is what I had on hand. The original recipe calls for plain white chocolate, so feel free to use whatever you have available.
