Salam to all,
I really didn't plan to bake anything at all today. We skipped lunch and was feeling very hungry at abt 4.30pm. We had an easy dinner of fish and chips at abt 5 pm just now. It's such a lazy day for us today as its last day of hb's off day. Actually, it wasnt really lazy for me bcos I had to iron 3 sets of hb's uniform huhuhu :ppp We were watching 'Kingdom of Heaven' on cable tv while having our dinner. It was the first movie me and hb watched when I first migrated to NZ. I've totally forgotten abt the story line of this movie. After clean up, we continued watching the movie and it ended abt 7pm ish.
At abt 7.30pm I told hb that I felt a little peckish ahakkksss. Hb said it's bcos we didnt have any pudding after dinner thats why....doh!! Opened up the pantry, no munchies for us. There's roasted peanuts and chocolate bar but we are just sick of them. Neither me nor hb wants to drive to the supermarket to get our usual dosage of potato chips and.......so, I baked these muffins. I couldn't think of anything else that can be baked quickly before Jannah's bedtime. They were ready by abt 8.20pm and I was so hoping that there'll still be a little daylight for me to photo these muffins. As soon as they come out of the oven, I quickly remove them from the muffin tray using my incredible heat proof fingers and quickly took photo of them. Oh well, I managed to get a few shots but I gave up after the camera's flash keeps on popping.
On a positive note....I managed to bake them and clean up in less than an hour. Also, I can pop a few of these into hb's lunch box tomorrow ;) Ohhhh by the way....they are so yummy, we had the muffins while they were still warm. Hb had 2 pieces with a cuppa coffee, Jannah had 1 with a cuppa milk and I had 1 with a cuppa plain icy cold water........
