Good-bye Thomasons'

This is an English muffin. It was part of my breakfast this morning.

"Lainie, your breakfast is unworthy of a blog post. We are busy women. Why would we want to read about your breakfast?"

Well I do understand everyone is very busy and appreciate you hanging in there this long with me.

What makes my breakfast remarkable to me this fine Saturday morning is that I made that English muffin.

From scratch.

Did you know that English muffins aren't baked? I didn't.

They are made on a buttered griddle like this:

I've always liked English muffins. But now? Oh my. We had Nana and Papa over for breakfast this morning and Papa said I shouldn't make them any more.

Surprised, I asked, "Why not?"

He replied,"Because everyone is fighting over them!"

Yup. They are that good. And they were pretty easy to make.

I got the recipe from this wonderful site.

She has lots of pictures and step-by-step instructions. I'm trying her bagels next time.

So, that's what I'm doing this Saturday morning--baking, knitting, and odds and ends around the house. What are you doing?

Can I pleeeeeeaaase have one??? Those look so scrumptious. It sounds like a wonderfully relaxing Saturday at your house. We're enjoying our Christmas tree- we just put it up this morn'... I know, it's early, but we really needed to get it up! We've been listening to Christmas music all week!!! Now if we just had some of those English muffins to go with the tree & carols, it would have made it a perfect morn'!!

Hubby put out the Christmas lights today and it looks great! We usually don't get this done until the first weekend in December or later, but since we'll be gone over Thanksgiving we thought we'd get it done now. It feels good. The english muffins look deeyishus!

Our lights are up too! I'm so festive this year. It's kinda weird because I haven't been this excited for the "typical" celebration stuff for a long time.

I think because I was so sick/tired/ recovering from something for so long.

I've got the J-O-Y going on over here. It feels good :)

Thank you for that recipe link! I made those for dinner last night and they were so good! I couldn't get over how soft they were, maybe I did something wrong but if so, I hope I do it again :D

Looking for something??
