Muffins and a craving


These are Lara's (of Recipe Shoebox) Maple Muffins. She posted hers on Thursday and I knew that's what I was making Saturday morning. MMM, they were really tasty and so commented my toughest critics (aka my 4 and 2 year old). Definately a keeper!
Pictured below is my favorite craving. It is the Thai Hut's Pad Thai. I get serious cravings for this dish. I have tried to copy it, and I've come close but I can never get it as good. Jonathan and I were at a wedding Saturday night. I knew (but forgot) that it was a dessert buffet and didn't have dinner beforehand. Afterwards we were enjoying a kid free evening and reluctant to go home. So we just drove around and talked. And then I realised I was hungry (this is about quarter to 10) and I really wanted Pad Thai. We were on the other side of town and hit every red light between here and there. We walked in at 5 past 10. The owner said that technically they were closed, but if I turned their open sign off and locked the door he would make us some Pad Thai. Oh that is the nicest thing anyone had done for me all day. We took it home and feasted. Mmmm, now I want some more :o)

Your muffins look very good. Wasn't that nice he made your craving for you, maybe he understands having a kid free night out isn't an everyday thing.!! LOL!!

Muffins look terrific.. Did you use grade A or Grade B syrup?

Lara said...

I'm so glad you enjoyed the muffins!

Kristen said...

Donna - I used just regular old table syrup, not the real thing - they still tasted great :o)
