Muffins With My Early Riser

We went to the farmer's market yesterday, and this is what our refrigerator looks like now.  I know if I don't get a plan for those veggies and act on it today, we'll have a bunch of wilted, sad looking produce by the end of the week.  Trust me - we've been down that wasteful road before.  I made a list yesterday of what I want to make with the veggies this week.  When Jack got up at {4:30} this morning saying his ear hurt, after some snuggles, Tylenol, ear drops, and just pleading that he go back to bed, I realized we were up for the day.  While I'm normally a very early riser, 4:30 is not my idea of a good time on Sunday morning....We decided to make the best of our time and make some muffins for breakfast.

We opted for zucchini muffins (half with chocolate chips for Jack and Katie and half without for David and Henry).  We used this recipe from  I've made zucchini muffins and bread before, but this was the first time I used this recipe, and it was great!  I used cinnamon applesauce instead of plain, because that was what I had.  

They're very dense muffins, and I would suggest spraying the muffin liner with some cooking spray or you'll end up with some of your muffin stuck in the liner.  The recipe made exactly a dozen muffins, and I filled the pan using a 1/4 cup measuring cup.

I had mine with a cup of coffee.  (Using my favorite coffee mug EVER, which I got at the Starbucks in Amsterdam.  It's the perfect size, and I get mad if it's dirty!)
