We were away enjoying the warmth and sunshine! It was really nice to just get away for a week. Although I did bring some snacks with me such as cookies, nuts and crackers, I obviously wasn’t able to eat any of the morning biscuits, scones or other treats that they had on the resort.
I was lucky that I only had one reaction, which was completely my own fault. Normally we go to the buffet. I love going to the buffet because I can pick out all the plain meats, vegetables and fruits that they have. Unfortunately, we decided to go to one of the a la carts. Not only did I not ask what was in the beef dish but I also didn’t bring my glasses. I didn’t see the mushroom until it was too late. I thought that maybe I wouldn’t react any more. It had been five years since I’d had a mushroom. I was wrong. I was down and out for almost twenty hours. After that day it was back to the buffet for me and the rest of the trip was great!
Since this was my first day off since being back, I wanted to make myself some muffins. I do have a regular Morning Glory Muffin recipe, but I’ve been making these ones lately and they are great! They’re even egg free! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
