Use the Pretty Dishes

Trite, but true: life is short so, use the pretty dishes. Just an ordinary Saturday breakfast, first one of the waining summer to speak of cooler weather to come, made me want something with apples. Here’s what I did.

Apple Granola Muffins

Ingredients:

1/2 a box of Duncan Hines Classic yellow cake mix

1/2 cup of biscuit mix

1 teaspoon cinnamon

3 tablespoons of granulated sugar

1 cup Cascadia Farms Apple Cereal

2 cored, chopped Gala apples with skins on

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 egg

1/4 cup of corn oil

3/4 cup of apple juice

What to do:

Set oven temperature to 350° and line your muffin cup pan.

Mix in a big bowl all dry ingredients. Fold in chopped apples and walnuts. Make a well in the center, add egg, oil and apple juice. Mix till combined.

Big scoops divided between each lined muffin cup. Bake till tops are nicely browned and bounce back when touched.

We ate from pretty dishes that belonged to my grandmother. Do you use the pretty dishes sitting in a dark cupboard? Bring them out into the light.The world outside is ugly. Your home should be a welcoming haven. Using the pretty dishes is a good start.

Blessings from the Exile’s Kitchen.
