Okay, its been a pretty crazy last week or two! I started my new job last week and I am really enjoying it so far! I think working in the bakery will be something I'll really enjoy but we will see how things progress! I'm very optimistic though! :) Plus, it will be fun to see how the inner workings of a real bakery work. Yesterday I got to make stuffing bread. They just throw older and smushed bread through the bread slicer so that it is in slivers, but that bread slicer is a crazy machine to operate! It was pretty cool though! Speaking of baking and stuff, I've been making all sorts of delicious things lately....
For example, I found this recipe for Double Apple Cinnamon Muffins. I've been looking through pinterest land for some good muffin recipes and found that one, and I also had a couple of apples that I probably wasn't going to eat. So, voila!! Here they are! I made them into jumbo muffins instead of standard muffin size. They are soooo good! Moist and delicious! :)
I've also been wondering what all the hullabaloo is about with Greek yogurt, so I got a container a few weeks ago and decided to try it.
I've also been making a TON of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies...
Also, I've been super into scones lately. Not the ones you fry in the deep fryer for Navajo tacos, but the English kind. I figured I would give this recipe a try, it is Simple Sweet Scones.
The sweet little chickens have been laying pretty steadily this last week. We have gotten one egg a day since the 1st, so today we got our 9th little egg. But! Oh wait...there was another one today! Yay! So now we have gotten 10 total!
And last, but certainly not least...we got some delicious baking potatoes straight from Idaho that some of our friends gave us. Yum! So we decided to eat them with chili. Because hubby and I don't hardly ever eat chili, we were wondering which kinds were best. So, we both did some research, made a list of chilis that we wanted to try and we did a small chili taste test! Yum!! So here are the kinds that we did and some information about them. I'll give the full name of the chili that we tried, the price that we paid for it, and a little bit of nutrition information. All the cans provided 2 servings per can.

P.S. I really don't like daylight savings time. Its 6:30 and so dark outside. Feels like it should be so much later. So annoying!
P.P.S. What is the deal with microfiber cloths? Why does everyone like them so much? I do have a few and I kind of don't like to use them, but maybe I'm not using them for what I should be...They do hold a lot of water, which is kind of cool! So, here's a question that anyone that reads this can answer if you like! Why you like microfiber cloths so much? Please tell me! :) Have a good evening!
