New Mom Muffins.
My mother in law stayed with Haddon and I the first week back to work while Micah was in training.
There is so much I could say about what a blessing that was. She was so truly sacrificial and served us so well. I’m talking taking care of Haddon, me, grocery shopping, meal planning/making, lunches made, personal photographer and much more!
– I survived the first week of work just fine.
– There is a deep dish freezer in my garage with more than 10 frozen meals.
– My son knows his grandmother better (for now…I wish he could remember this time, I know I always will!)
– She left this.
When she was a working mama with her first, her friend and her would take turns making these:
Bran Muffins –
(dough can be kept in fridge for 4-6 weeks)
1 1/2 c sugar
1/2 c oil
2 c buttermilk
2 1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp soda
2 c allbran cereal
1 c bran flakes
1 c raisins
1 c nuts
Bake in greased tin 400′ for 15-20min
You make a huge batch and it can be kept in the fridge for 4 – 6 weeks! Just pop some in muffin tins in the morning for a fresh, healthy, and tasty breakfast!
we had a great 10 days together and I loved learning from her Titus 2 style. Younger women just need to be around older more experienced women.
Thanks for everything Mama Downs, including this delicious recipes I hope now other moms get to enjoy.
