My grocery store stopped carrying vitamuffin mix. Why, Harris Teeter - WHY? I know, I can order the mix online. That is not the point. When I found out they were discontinuing them, I bought 4 boxes of chocolate muffin mix, and a box of blueberry. I like the chocolate ones better, obviously. I had to choose tonight between chocolate and blueberry. I can sometimes manage delayed gratification, and I did that tonight by saving my one remaining box of chocolate vitamuffin mix for sometime in the future.
These are so easy to make; the ingredients are 1 package of vitamuffin mix, 1 1/4 cup water, 3 egg whites, and 1/4 cup blueberries. The directions say fresh blueberries, I used frozen. It makes 12 muffins. Baking them myself is a whole lot cheaper than buying them from the freezer department. A box of mix costs about the same as a box of frozen muffins, only you get 12 if you make them yourself and only 4 if you buy them already made.
I decided to use my big muffin pans for this batch, to see how they come out. I mixed all the ingredients and the batter looks kind of soupy. I don't remember if the chocolate ones look like this at this point. The first time I made vitamuffins I didn't bother to put on my glasses and only used 1/4 cup of water instead of 1 1/4. They were really hard to mix. While they were baking, I put on my glasses and read the directions. Oh, I thought. 1 1/4 cups of water. Oops. They came out kind of dry and tough (but I ate them anyway).
Bake at 400 degrees for 23-28 minutes. My oven runs a little hot and these were baked by 21 minutes.
Since I used the big muffin pan, they came out kind of flat and vitatop-ish. I love vitamuffins. So much nutrition for 100 calories. I realize that this isn't a fresh, natural food, but they are great to have around when you need a snack that isn't full of empty calories!
Sadie had a bath on Sunday. She loves to swim, so I don't know why taking a bath bothers her so much. She loves all the attention, the rubbing and brushing, the rinsing, the getting-dried-with-a-towel, and the after-bath cookie. You'd think she'd be thrilled to be in the bathtub and she would splash around and enjoy herself, but she doesn't.
Greg's still not home. :(
