Izzy: I love you because you’re you.
Wendy: what does that mean?
Izzy: it means they want to hug.

Izzy: I don’t want to grow up?
Wendy: why not?
Izzy: I don’t want to be like a grown up because I won’t be able to sleep anymore.

Wendy: can you tell me a story about two?
Izzy: Once upon a time there were two ducks. And in the morning a dinosaur ate one of them. The other on got lost. The end.

——-

Wendy: can you tell me a story about two ducks?
Izzy: one morning they were playing. And then a monster came and took them to the forest. He told the dinosaur no pushing! And so he didn’t push anyone. The end.

——-

Izzy: I will tell you another duck story. It’s a difficult one.

One morning it was raining. And one morning then sun came up. And then it was raining again. And the duck wasn’t worried because there was a lot of rain for them swim in.

Wendy: what works?
Izzy: Teamwork! I see a lot of teamwork.
Wendy: is murky helping us?

Izzy: I wish I had a pet. Something like a dog.
Wendy: You have something like a dog. It’s called two cats named Murky and Kirby.
Izzy: But I want a dog. Our home is big enough for one.
Wendy: Yeah? Take it up with Debra.

Te amo, mama. Te amo.

Remember when we ate with cousins? That was a lot of fun!

Izzy: Sadhana is sick of cats.
Wendy: No, sweetie. Sadhana is not sick of cats. She’s allergic to cats.
Izzy: right! Allergic. They make her sneeze.

As I was putting Izzy to bed, I told her that I was going to going to take some allergy medicine, and that I would come back in a few minutes and check on her. She said, “don’t worry about me. I’m okay. Come back and let me know when you’re feeling better.”

——–

I love you. You are my best mama.

——–

Te amo, raspberries.

While playing sound clips of mandarin phrases from the Internet, Izzy says: that’s not my Chinese. That’s your Chinese.

———

Wendy: what are you an expert at?
Izzy: lots of things
Wendy: like what?
Izzy: I am an expert at doing so many things.

Blueberry Muffins

On July 5, 2011, in Yummy Goodness, by Wendy

Izzy and I love muffins. Last week, I made some Red Beet Cupcakes that were wonderful! I didn’t add frosting though, so they were more like muffins. Also, mine didn’t turn out as vibrant red as hers. Still tasty, nonetheless.

I made some strawberry muffins a month or so ago, but I didn’t really like them. I think my strawberries weren’t sweet enough. Last night, I made some blueberry muffins, using the strawberry muffin recipe as a reference, but made a few changes. They are so wonderfully delicious! I’ve already had two for breakfast.

1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour
1 Cup White Wheat Flour
3 Tsp Baking Powder
1/2 Tsp Salt
1 Large Egg
3/4 Cup Soy Milk
1/4 Cup Vegetable or Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Honey or Agave Nectar
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Tsp Lemon Zest
1 1/2 Cups Blueberries

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a bowl, combine the first 3 ingredients.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk egg and add milk, oil, honey, vanilla, and lemon zest and stir.
4. Using a standing mixer or hand mixer, slowly combine the dry ingredients with the wet until incorporated (try not to over mix the batter).
5. Add the blueberries to the batter and slowly combine.
6. Line or grease muffin tins and fill 2/3 of the way with batter.
7. Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick tester comes out clean.
8. Cool and serve.
