Checking IN and Checking OUT (Recipe Books from the Library)


Every Tuesday, the eldest dd and I drop off the younger dd at Brownies and then swing by the local library to pick up books ( dd loves to preorder online ) and assorted DVDs. I recently- on one of our visits- discovered a hidden shelf of new additions to the library including a circulating treasure trove of new recipe books. If you haven't already guessed, I heart new recipe books and how cool is it to check out new ones without spending a fortune on buying them- like I usually do? :)

The muffins pictured above ( I've been doing a lot of muffins lately, it seems, eh? ) are Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins from Rose Reisman's The Complete Light Kitchen. They are really good- moist and a perfect blend of banana and chocolate (mmmmm)- and will set you back 3 points for one.

There seem to be a ton of other recipes I want to try in the book, too. Rose does good books. Maybe I'll have to buy it in the end anyway. :P For now, I renewed it for another week.

In Tuesday check-in news, I've been Halloween-bad this weekend (see yesterday's post) and I'm up, of course. I doubt any of it will rub off before tomorrow's official wi. I feel back on track again though, so I might re-evaluate my Christmas challenge to make it more doable and get rid of the rest of the crack- er, Halloween candy.

I'm with you on that Halloween crack - my kid has a smallish bucket full that we keep aside for when he "goes pee pee" and I'll be damned if my hand doesn't get stuck in that thing several times each evening... Hope you have a good week. All of your muffins look fabulous.

my Christmas challenge is scaring me a bit too! I don't know how I will lose 20 lbs by then!

Those muffins sound yummy. Fortunately,I don't have any of the ingredients on hand. Except for the bananas. I have plenty of those. I'll just close my eyes and pretend. :)

YUMMY! Those muffins look divine! Now I need to figure out how to tweak them to be wheat free...

I totally feel your pain - I can't even keep candy in the house or it is gone, gone, gone.

Have a great night!
