pancake mix muffins.

I've got 1,000,000 things to complete. I LIKE LEARNING but sometimes I want to put everything aside and just go ice skating.

Finals are also for muffins and tonight, that was really all I wanted.

Who has time to mix together dry ingredients? I don't have three extra minutes for that because mulling over the likes of Paulo Freire and Pancho Villa is attacking my life. So for those times, I've created (someone probably created it first) a way to have muffins in half the time. Because I used pancake mix. Oh, I'm sorry! Did I just hear you judging me?

I am unfazed, so is Mr. Pancho Villa, and you can thank me later. (i love you)

Pancake Mix Muffins


2 cups pancake mix
1 egg substitute (or a real egg)
1 cup non-dairy (or dairy) milk
2 tbs melted butter, margarine, oil what-have-you
1 tsp vanilla

Whatever add-ins for whatever kind of muffin mood you're in.

(this recipe is sassy like my finals-oriented mind)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Mix everything together.

Fill twelve muffin cups and bake your new friends for 20 minutes or until a toothpick, inserted, comes out clean.

You know who else is sassy? This guy. He's a Christmas yeti. And if you come to i like you in Northeast Minneapolis, you can visit him. And maybe me.

in any given week & the hollydaze.

This week things happened and I got way excited for the holidays. WHY?!

1. My new baby Canon Rebel has been doing me real good.

Welcome to my Tuesday/Thursday weekly life. Improvising with these lovely mugs.

It's true, I'm totally learning things in school.

 2. During my prime years of cool, (1st-3rd grade), I was an figure skating princess. Which is why I'm excited to report my newly acquired ICE SKATES. From the best of friends, Nicole. I'm about to make a serious comeback, world.

3. All week. Lianne Lahavas. You want to listen? You should.

4. Things I'm currently excited about that have something to do with the holidays:
  • cranberry bread
  • Hallmark Channel Christmas movies
  • candy cane cookies
  • Pretending I know the lighting the menorah prayer. I might. I'm just not sure.
  • apple latkes
  • breakfast on Christmas
  • dogs
  • gingerbread gingerbread gingerbread
(Notice how I put things in between the bullets that had to do with food. I did that on purpose. Because I'm not only excited about cookies. I just wanted to get that out there.)

5. A special creation brought to you by Ms. Samantha Feld.


7. This week I went to our local cash only, no meat eatery to indulge in some tempeh jambalaya, forgot to order it to go, and then was forced to have alone time. All I had with me was an issue of Glamour. You don't read Glamour in Hard Times. I felt like an awful, awful person. Like I was committing a crime. The jambalaya was good.

8. This weekend my mother is visiting. How many cookies will we eat? I will report back later with this information.

Lata, playas. There's some nanner bread in the oven that needs my attention.
