This post is taking me back to mornings in my home as a fully-nested mother. These delicious and quick muffins were a big hit with my Fab 5. But why the Phantom reference? Because this was also part of the era where this Broadway musical was very popular. My kids were interested in it because they found out that their beloved Condorman (Michael Crawford) was, in fact, The Phantom. Although our allegiances still stayed with "Les Miserables" as the family favorite, the Phantom music provided for great breakfast comedy performances. You see, my kids thought it hilarious that, when this song came on, I'd stop what I was doing on my inner side of the kitchen counter, and start to play the "counter" organ along with the music. Of course I was theatrical about it. Of COURSE, I sang along, in my finest operatic voice (tee hee)! And, of course, it was an almost daily request - at least by my youngest, who hadn't quite perfected the art of rolling their eyes - yet. I can hardly eat these muffins without remembering those mornings and the joy at getting them to laugh to start their day.
Facebook sure has a way of getting things passed around.
The enlightening, the gross, the spiritual, the tearful,
the helpful, the happy, the informing,
and the infuriating.
