I Dream of Muffins

At least this morning, I did. I was in a bakery sampling an all-you-can-eat muffin buffet. I'm not usually a big fan of muffins unless they are blueberry, especially hot from the oven. But in this dream, I was eating everything. It was such a "sweet" dream that I reset the alarm to sleep another hour.

The weirdest part was when I asked whether they had any apple-cinnamon muffins, and they seemed surprised and intrigued by the idea ("We'll have to try that sometime!"). I mean, I didn't think apple-cinnamon muffins were anything new, and this bakery already had more than a dozen other varieties.

Today I took the car in for more work (engine overheating). Walking home, I passed a Dunkin' Donuts. Naturally, I had to go in and order a muffin. They didn't have apple-cinnamon, but they did have pumpkin. Let me tell you, those pumpkin muffins (limited time only) are pretty darn tasty, almost as good as Mom's pumpkin squares, but without the cream cheese frosting (photo and recipe here, but I didn't check to make sure it's exactly the same).
