A Dirty “Manger”

Today I read Proverbs 14:4:
Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean,
but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox.

I have translated it into my own version:                                                                “Where there are no fresh baked goods, the kitchen is clean. But abundant yumminess comes by the strength of the cook.”

Today I didn’t have to leave the house at all.  YAY!  The kids and I made Grapenut Muffins.

1. Pour 1 cup boiling water over 1 cup grapenuts. Mix well, cool, stir 1 cup oil in well in grapenuts.

2. Mix 1 1/4 white flour, 1 1/4 wheat flour, 2 1/2 t. baking soda, and    1 t. salt.

3. Beat 2 eggs and 1 cup sugar.  Add dry ingredients.  Stir in 2 cups buttermilk and add 2 cups dry grapenuts (not the ones from step 1).  Mix well.

4. Add grapenut mixture from step 1.

5. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350 in greased muffin pans.

*Batter may be refrigerated for several weeks.
