Anyway! I won something y'all! And it's wacky and I think all the planets aligned to make me win (or there was corruption and bribery involved - either way it's epic).
I have been meaning to blog about these delish spinach muffins I started making about a month ago. I got them off of Pinterest and I was delighted when they tasted pretty good and got Girl 3 to eat spinach.
My kids *might* be spawn of Popeye because they are some spinach lovin' kids. Weird, right? Except for Girl 3. She hates spinach and if you try to put it on her tongue she gags like you are water boarding her.
Now, that Girl 3 should be the exception should come as no surprise if you are a regular reader. She's typically the exception (as in: None of my kids have been hospitalized, except Girl 3. None of my kids have gone to the principal's office for behavior, except Girl 3. None of my kids have ever participated in clocking someone on the head with a wooden iron, except Girl 3, etc., etc.).
Not only was Girl 3 eating spinach for the first time ever, these muffins were healthy enough for hubby and me to eat without having to starve ourselves for the rest of the day!
So, since these spinach muffins were a hit, I figured this Weelicious gal was on to something. So, I decided to give this blog a second look and I found another recipe that we all love and can all eat! I had been using an ancient pumpkin apple muffin recipe for years (I think I got it from Moses), and although delicious and popular, it's loaded with sugar and gooiness. The kids love those muffins, but hubby and I really can't eat them without having to then run a marathon. So, baking them is a huge risk. The Weelicious pumpkin apple muffins are tasty and fairly healthy!
Then, the stars aligned.
I found out gradually that this Weelicious lady is someone really famous. Her blog has like eight million readers and she's been on TV a gazillion times touting her recipes and such. Apparently I was the only person on earth who hadn't heard of her. I hate to not know about food bandwagons, so I started reading this Weelicious lady's blog a lot. And I got some other good stuff. THEN, sweet Heidi over at Girl to Mom had a giveaway.
Guess what the giveaway was?
You guessed it! My copy came in the mail yesterday. Thank you, Girl to Mom.
I will no doubt be trying some new stuff.
That's it for now, friends. I have to go. This week has been a small taste of Hell. I have a ton of work (which is all good) and of course only when I have a ton of work do ridiculous things happen to me that require blogging. I dropped my drawers while running (accidentally), I have two new yard signs for my campaign, my fabulous hair dresser pulled me back into my twenties, my credit card and one of my Halloween pumpkins were stolen (only one was used for fraud), and my pricey pre-cancerous eyeball caused me to have to pay for an otherwise insurance covered eye exam. I think all of that happened in one week.
Stay tuned, friends. You are bound to have a laugh soon at my expense. And, please, have a delightfully witchy weekend.
