It's time for Muffin Monday.....................
Stacy of Food Lust People Love invites us on the last Monday of each month to share a Muffin recipe.  

Muffin Monday
#MuffinMonday is a group of muffin loving bakers who get together once a month to bake muffins. You can see all of our lovely muffins by following our Pinterest board. Updated links for all of our past events and more information about Muffin Monday can be found on our home page.

Let's see what muffins everyone is enjoying today..........

My husband is a CPL instructor.  He has classes once or twice a month depending on the demand.  It is an 8 hour class so I provide the students with breakfast and lunch.  That breakfast always includes some homemade muffins, breads or pastries along with yogurt, fresh fruit, granola, assorted juices and coffee.

These muffins were a big hit with the students and I think I will be making them again and again. 

The day after this class we left early in the morning for a week in Florida.  We took the Teen and a friend to Universal.  We stayed right on site at the Cabana Bay Beach Resort.  We went to Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure and Volcano Bay.  All of the property did a great job of social distancing, masking and keeping people safe.  Each morning we had our temp taken and were given a colored wristband that let all the employees know we were fever free.  

We got home late last night so I sat down and started working on my Weekly Menu that I am sharing with you now.
