I made these muffins the other day on a whim and boy am I glad we gave them a whirl.  GOOD!  They are Millet Muffins courtesy of 101 Cookbooks - a fabulous blog.  She has a new cookbook that just came out and this recipe is in the book.  I hope the rest of the recipes are just as good!

The kids ADORED them!  Even with no butter on top!

We were seriously fighting over every last one of them.

I snuck the last 2 for myself!  Don't worry - I plan on making more this week sometime so I'm not THAT mean of a mom.  ; )

The weather has been lame the past few days and from what I hear - the trend is going to continue.  So the kids spent some time outside today even though it was NOT warm.  Looks can be deceiving!

Ok, THIS has to be the last of it!  I know I said this last week (and most likely I jinxed it) but this time it has to be true!  It just has to!

For those keeping score, Eric's prediction of ice out TODAY was wrong.  I might have a shot with my guess of tomorrow (April 18th).  It is looking really, really thin this evening.  I will be gloat-y gloater-son if I win!  Woohoo!

I love how intense he looks!

He wasn't liking the sun in his eyes.  Apparently the sunglasses didn't help though cuz he wanted to stop playing right after this.

And this brings us to tonight's dinner.  I had bought a ham from Cub this past week for a pretty sweet deal - 89 cents a pound!  So it fed us for 4 days now - and there's still some left!  Score!  So tonight I decided to veer away from the ever popular sandwich route.  This was pretty good!  Its a Broccoli, Ham and Pasta Salad from Eating Well.

I didn't use all the things the recipe called for, but only cuz I didn't have it all on hand.  I used brown rice fusilli from Trader Joes instead of whole wheat pasta.  I also didn't use any plain yogurt, but only because we didn't have any and it was just fine without it.  This is definitely a keeper!  It will be a great summer time salad for sure!   I was the only one who ate it with spinach - its definitely not a necessity, but I like spinach - so there!

Well, Dylan's movie night feature film (Toy Story) is nearly over, so must go wrangle him into bed.  Tomorrow is picture day at school, so he's gotta get his beauty sleep! : )
