Just a Simple Sand Box – Recipe: Strawberry Nutella Muffins


We did more than just rake leaves this weekend.


Sean added fresh, new sand to the sand box, too.


And, that was more excitement than the youngest littles could handle.


They waited with anticipation of something grand.


And, they were so excited to jump right in.  Even Gabriel joined in on the fun.  Who can resist clean, white, soft sand?  Certainly not any of my littles.



Something else that we all plunged right into this weekend was these Strawberry Nutella Muffins.  I used my basic muffin recipe and kicked it up a notch by adding yummy Nutella to the center.  Since we were having our Winter-Spring weather, the Strawberry-Nutella combination was perfect for a yummy breakfast and an afternoon snack, too.
