Summer break as an adult with a handful of children is difficult work. Just this week alone we’ve had playdates at friends house’s, gone swimming (4 times), bounced a morning away at Monkey Joes, ventured to the movies, treated ourselves to frozen yogurt, treated ourselves to dinner, and motored our way downtown for a morning at the Discovery Place (our resident science museum). The kids are having a summer break they won’t soon forget. I, on the other hand, need a well earned time out from all the fun.
Thank goodness for hot coffee and a muffin the size of my head. These treasures have been making my mornings a whole lot better for the past few days. Simply slice one in half, grab a large vessel of steaming hot caffeine and who knows where the day can take us? I’ve conquered lemon poppy seed and my next challenge is obtaining blueberry perfection. All I know is if I have one of these treats at my side, there’s nothing I can’t handle.
If you’re in search of summer break sustenance, then you’ll need to cream up a little sugar and butter and throw in a few goodies such as eggs, vanilla, and lemon in both the zest form and the juice form.
