Recycling Memories and Recipes

“What are you recycling?” Jabber asked.

A recipe.  One that I had years and years and years and years—oh, alright, a long time ago.  Brought back memories….

Sosew sent it to us–it’s for the Raisin Bran Muffins she made for us on Saturday.  We all really enjoyed them.

Back in the day, when I was just a pup……

“YOU were a puppy?” Jabber asked again.  “What happened?  Does Houdini know about this?  Were YOU a Houdini too and that’s how you did it?”

Oh for heaven’s sake.  No!

Come on, get a grip here.  I was a young woman.  People don’t change from dogs to humans, you know, just because they get old er……puppies become dogs and young women don’t become old women, they just become ‘women of a certain age.’   As we all know.

“What age?” Jabber asked innocently.  “You have to know how old you are, don’t you?”

I’m ignoring that.

“But Houdini became a Houdini even though she’s a puppy….” Jabber tried to interject, reminding me of how she got out of the car straps and left the halter firmly attached to the seat belt….  

I cut Jabber off….

Stop it!  This is about a recipe.  An older recipe which I think the Weeders are going to like.  Quit with the Houdini stuff, Jabber!

Back in the day, when I was youn…ger……I often made this recipe for the family.  So, it was sort of a trip down memory lane to see it again, not to mention taste the muffins again!  Loved them then and love them now.  Try it!
