But seriously, if you are what you eat then I’m a carbohydrate. One gigantic carb, deep fried and covered in chocolate sauce. Which is why I decided to make Sausage Egg muffins. Which I thought were healthy, until my mom just told me they had lots of fat. Well, bang goes that theory…
You know when you are craving a food that’s totally stupid, but you can’t stop thinking about it? That’s what these sausage egg muffins were doing to me. They’ve been beckoning me ever since I discovered the recipe last night. Yes, I said beckoning. I feel so poetic.
I woke up at 6am this morning to make them. When I got downstairs, my dog gave me a look like “whatchoo doing up so early, lady?” and I looked back like “stay outta my business, dog.” and then I realized I was telepathically speaking to a dog. So I stopped.
Oh and on top of all that, I made these on the always stressful Picture Day. Picture day for all us dorky homeschoolers usually involves 99% of us smiling like Steven from Nacho Libre.
But back to these muffins. They’re pretty amazing and so easy to make. And believe me when I say that. I always speak the truth about food. If something is easy, I’ll say it’s easy. If something tastes like death, then I’d say it tastes like death. Oh, and thanks to all the people who put up with with me and my strangeness. You guys are the bomb.
You basically make the sausage, cut up the broccoli, whisk the egg stuff, put it in muffin thingies, add cheese. Boom. Instant deliciousness.
I’m pretty sure the roads of heaven are lined with sausage and egg muffin flowers. Or something like that.
Oh and guess what else I got?
FINALLY! It came today. And I’m off to listen to it right now. Weirdly, I passed up on getting the other two CDs I wanted. Especially since on one CD, the singer is a freak and the other one I couldn’t take the singers seriously because of the ridiculous costumes…..And then I found $5. If you end your stories with that, it makes people forget the story was so incredibly boring. Did it work?
