I had the leftover Mac N Cheese for dinner, it was just that good! Thankfully, I actually ended up finishing it off. Usually with large dishes like that, it takes me several days to get through all of it myself. While I was eating, I watched an episode of Everest: Beyond The Limit from Netflix Instant Watch. That show is nuts!
After thinking about how crazy it would be to climb Mt. Everest, I decided to make Banana Pumpkin Muffins to use up some old bananas my roomate donated to me. I made these a few weeks back but I wasn’t satisfied with how they turned out, so I made some scary adjustments and was almost expecting these to be duds. While the muffins baked, I cleaned up the kitchen. Once done baking, I took a taste test and they were super delicious!
