So I have a salad of mixed greens, tomato wedges, and red onion with yogurt ranch dressing, two homemade banana peanut butter chocolate mini muffins, leftover macaroni and cheese, and some random fruit I had around: pomegranate seeds, a few kiwi slices, and a kumquat, cut in half and pitted.
I really wish the banana peanut butter chocolate mini muffins had turned out to be as good as they sounded. For now I am refraining from giving my recipe, because it needs tweaking--more sugar; perhaps actual chocolate rather than cocoa powder, and a drizzle of chocolate on top. But I can tell you that the ones baked in the silicone cups rose much better than the ones in paper cups. I couldn't believe the difference when I looked at them side by side.
Meanwhile, the duck and I had a fun night tonight:
There was so much duck stock that I have some in ice cube trays, freezing., and there's still quite a lot of this soup left. A chilly night needs a good bowl of bun vit mang, even if it is missing the bamboo shoots because there are none to be had in my grocery store.
