Banana Date Oat Muffins

This recipe was made in the months of muffin mania madness. More specifically, during the “stay at home” order that was in effect and still is in some places. Banana Date Oat Muffins are perfect for a quick grab-n-go breakfast. Easy, flavorful and moist. If your family are not fond of dates,  substitute golden raisins or dried cranberries.

Memorial Day

It’s hard to believe that it’s Memorial Day weekend! A weekend that usually signals the end of the school year and the start of summer vacation. Our god-son Erik, graduated from high-school this year. We had made plans to attend his graduation in South Dakota. But like so many plans, the COVID-19 pandemic changed that.

For the high-school graduates of 2020, graduation was far from spectacular. A walk through an empty auditorium, a walk across an empty stage to receive your diploma. So sad! Erik was valedictorian of his class and is on his way to Minnesota. He’ll attend summer classes at the University of Minnesota, where he’ll be attending college this fall. Your future awaits you Erik!
