It has been quite the week. It's the kind of week that calls for muffins. And hugs.
It's been pretty stressful with the semester just getting underway. But, there's so much fun just around the corner. Between me and the weekend, there are just a few more crazy hours of students wanting to join my classes late, total online workbook confusion and watching panicked 101 students as I speak to them in Spanish (in a Spanish class...crazy, I know).
Then, there will be friends, giant grilled cheese sandwiches, suitcases, a wedding, reunions, a realtor meeting (yes, after all this time we may actually start the house hunt here soon), and a long (glorious!) weekend to relax and recoup.
These are crazy day muffins. They're moist, sweet and healthy. They will make you happy. And the best part is that they work on both good crazy days and bad crazy days.
