Coffee time...

I am literally sitting here at the computer having my afternoon coffee time.  And this (muffin) is what was once on my plate.  Now am picking the crumbs and will soon lick both crumbs and sugar from the plate, washing it down with the last of my strong, black coffee.  It's a good thing!  Is it any wonder I must have my 3:00 cup of coffee every day?  You want it too, don't you?  Some years ago I started this afternoon coffee thing, and enjoyed it so much that I don't intend to quit.  This morning I made a batch of what was supposed to be Pumpkin Doughnut Muffins, but as I started into the recipe and was nearing the end, I went to the pantry and found no canned pumpkin so I did what any cooker would do, skipped it and baked them off as they were.  Oh my!  I didn't miss the pumpkin one itty bitty bit.  They were just perfectly delicious with interior doughnutty spices of all-spice and nutmeg and an exterior coating of melted butter and cinnamon & sugar.  If you want to make these yummy muffins, you can find the recipe here.  Just omit the pumpkin!  Actually, I baked them at 380*F (I don't know why I chose that temp) for about 15 minutes or so.  I don't think you should have to bake muffins for a half an hour, but that's just me.  Maybe if they had had been made properly with pumpkin in them, they would have taken longer to bake, but I will never know.
I got a couple pounds of onions planted in one of the raised beds today --  mulched it and watered it.  The bread dough is rising and spilling over the bowl so I must quit this coffee-ing and chit-chat and get myself back to work.  I hope you took a little time for an afternoon cuppa.


  1. Between 2:30 and 3:00 is also the time I need a pick-me-up, but for me it's usually a bit of chocolate. That muffin looks delicious!

  2. Time here now for camomile tea and bed! I got some onions in this week- am still working on the next instalment of planting!

  3. Now I have a bath at 3 in the afternoon. It is how I recharge. Your a smart woman to take the time xox Clarice

  4. That muffin looks delicious. It's good to be a flexible cook! Our work day turned into a play day because the roofers came. I was suppose to mow the lawn. Oh well...

  5. Right on! Whether it's tea or coffee (my favorite), I need the time to sit and gather my thoughts again each afternoon.

  6. Hi friend!
    Have you ever read First We Have Coffee?
    For my early Mother's Day gift, our son roasted me some beans. I may have to have an afternoon cup of Joe, today!
    Your muffins look super tasty!

  7. Aw, man, you're making me wish I were a coffee drinker! I've never been able to adjust to the taste -- I'm not even a fan of mocha flavored desserts. Boo-Hiss for me. But those little sugary goodies sure do look good -- I'm DEFINITELY on board with those LOL!!!
