Anyway, I put some pictures from my mom's card onto the computer, so I can write about them.
Here we go!
Last night, Kelli left for a youth retreat over the weekend. I decided I wanted to make something and to keep Evan out of my hair, I asked him if he wanted to help. He was actually really excited about it, even more than I expected. I decided to make Applesauce Muffins because they were really easy the first time I made them and I really liked them! They are from a cookbook my mom and her coworkers made in 1990 when she worked at the Capitol Records plant in Illinois.
Applesauce Muffins Mendy McGee
1/2 c. oil
1 c. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. applesauce (regular or cinnamon. I've tried both.)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg (the last time I made it I didn't have any so I dumped in some apple pie spice.)
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. allspice
Put all ingredients into a mixing bowl and mix well. Bake in muffin pans at 400º for 15-20 minutes.
(Word of caution- You will want to use those muffin cups. If you try to butter the muffin tins, the butter will burn and the muffins will still taste good, except for a thin crispy layer on the outside. Trust me, I know! :)
These things are super moist! I love 'em!
I don't know about you, but this is one of my favorite pictures possibly ever. I hardly ever get a good one of us together! We even match!
Moving right along. . .
Here are a few pictures from my concert a week ago.

That Saturday, along with my show choir competition, Kelli and my cousin Nathan had a solo/small group contest in Ogden.
