I baked you some apple muffins! Well, not really, as they probably wouldn’t ship well and I may eat them all before they could get sent out to you.
What I did do is find you some spinning time! How did I do that?
Tonight as I was making up a fresh batch of an old recipe for apple muffins, I realized that baking these or any muffins that take about 25 minutes in the oven will buy you time to grab a cup of tea and get a solid 15 minutes of spinning in as well.
To some, it may seem like multi-tasking. I don’t think of it that way. I have this vision of using the time to spin instead of standing in the kitchen, just sipping on your cup of tea as you stare at the oven timer waiting for the muffins to finish baking. They smell so delicious I can understand wanting to stay close to the yummy scents of fall.
You can always guard the oven from the family who will wander in to see what is baking by having your spindle and fiber ready to go. You can get that 15 minutes in as well as protect the kitchen fortress!
I’ll leave the recipe here for you to try or use your own favorite muffin recipe and give that baking time up for spinning.
Let us know how it worked out!
