Sunday's Wacky Breakfast

Happy Sunday! This morning I woke up with lots of energy and enthusiasm and wanted to start the day by making a big Sunday breakfast of eggs, bacon, biscuits and muffins. What my breakfast evolved into though was quite different, and a bit comical (now, anyway) was not comical whatsoever at the time. I'm hoping this isn't an indication of how my Thanksgiving cooking will go this week! I started my breakfast prep by making my Lemon Macaroon Mini-Muffins. Well, that is where my breakfast aspirations began and promptly ended! While making my muffins, I had a bowl of all the dry ingredients and another bowl with all the wet ingredients on the counter. While I was beating the wet ingredients together (3 eggs, 3/4 cup buttermilk, 1/4 cup oil, vanilla, etc.), I somehow knocked my bowl of wet ingredients off the counter when I bumped my whisk. So, there I was standing in my favorite pink fuzzy slippers in a pool of the most slimy icky sloppy mess you could imagine. It was all over the counter, running down my dishwasher, my cabinets, all over my chef's mat and all over my hardwood floors -- and how, by the way, did I get some in my hair, too??? Your guess is as good as mine. After close to an hour of clean up (mostly by hubby) -- yeah, it was that messy --  and putting my slippers into the washing machine...I actually resumed making my muffins and started over again with the wet ingredients. By then, my enthusiasm was all but gone. I baked the muffins and scrapped the biscuits, eggs, and bacon...and instead grabbed a few slices of Boar's Head cracked pepper turkey breast out of the fridge...slapped some muenster cheese on top and rolled them up. I had that along with a few muffins and a cup of coffee.  Hmmm....wonder what making dinner will turn into for me tonight? LOL As I sat down to eat, I decided to grab my camera, toss a couple of beautiful fall flowers by my plate and snap a quick photo to show you that "when life hands you lemons and dumps your muffin batter on the floor...regroup and roll up turkey and cheese"!  Enjoy!

Now, that's what I call "snatching victory right out of the jaws of defeat." Literally! Nice recovery! :-)

Beautiful flowers! Ours are all gone ... leaves, too. It was an even shorter autumn this year than normal. Freezing cold today. We're progressing rapidly toward winter. But ... I'm enjoying a nice hot cup of cocoa, so it's not so bad. :-)

Thanks, CyberSis! Hot cocoa sounds really good right now! Our temps didn't get out of the 40s today -- very chilly! At least I didn't make a mess of our dinner! lOL -- :-)
