I came across a new muffin recipe. Orange and poppy seed muffins made with sour cream in the mix. I used my Pamela's baking mix as usual. You do not have to add baking powder, baking soda or salt as they are already in the mix. The recipe also called for cranberry orange butter but I forgot the cranberry sauce but I enjoyed them so much I did not miss the special butter. When I do make them again I will make them with the special butter.
I also have a recipe for pecan wedges with brown sugar whipped cream. I will finally get to use my springform pan.

It has been a while since I made chili. So I picked up some chop meat, beans, green pepper and onion. I added crushed tomatoes, chili powder, salt and pepper and some garlic. I also add a little sugar because I do not like a hot chili. We had some white rice and avocado on the side. This meal freezes well and will be lunch tomorrow.
I went through my recipe folder and I want to make muffins. I also have a springform pan that I haven't used yet and found a pecan recipe that sounds good. I have been relying on old staples but I need to make more veggies. I start to crave them when I slack off.
I was on jury duty for a few weeks and got home later than usual. It is so easy to get lazy!
