Back to Reality – Recipe: Peanut Butter Muffins


Pin It

I loved every single second of Spring Break.  We had fun up until the last minute…even doing yard work and starting our first garden was fun.  It was all about just being together. Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket The littles really got into St. Patrick’s Day this year, too. Photobucket They came into my room with their little pinchers saying, “Momma, you better get on your green unless you want to be pinched.”  Note to self: buy green pajamas for next year. Photobucket And, they got a real kick out of the green chocolate chip pancakes and green smoothie. Photobucket It was a fun day, and I was glad that it came at the end of spring break, after our week of fun.  It was just a nice way to top it all off. Photobucket Photobucket Now I sit here this morning missing my boys terribly, I am trying to hold on to what I texted Gabriel last night, as he was struggling with leaving me today.  “You are always with me, even when we are not  together.  You are a part of me.”  That is true…but I sure do miss their smiling faces this morning. Yesterday, as I was starting to prepare for today, I made these Peanut Butter Muffins  that I had found at American Family via Pinterest.  They are low in sugar, have protein, and are a good easy breakfast or snack.  It made me feel better to know that the boys would have something homemade for their snack today.  I know that they will think of me and smile when they open their snack container.  They are always with me…and I am always with them, too.

Thanks for the kind compliment on my Instagram pictures. I am so new to all of this, but out of everything (other than my blog), Instagram is my favorite social tool. Love it! Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Women go through a variety of physical disturbances such as for example menstruation, pregnancy and menopause in fact it is due to this that their vitamin and mineral requirements are adjusted to match these procedures. Lack of blood in the monthly cycle means that a woman could be deficient in iron and will have to replace this with a supplement. Taking B6 and niacin, calcium and manganese can alleviate menstrual cramps. Multivitamins with black cohosh or Isoflavones (phytooestrogens) can also help during the menopause and may balance out hot flushes.
