Muffin Lady

I was having a bit of a bummer day at work yesterday until I walked into the Finance office and saw the spread of baked goods on the desk top.  The Muffin Lady was making her rounds.  I wasn't familiar with the Muffin Lady and her business.  Apparently she goes around Lake Placid and Wilmington to different offices with her baskets full of homemade baked goods and sells them.  Her next stop was going to be at the Luge offices where one of her friends was going to be selling them at the Farmers Market in Keene this weekend.  She sells homemade muffins, breads, cookies, and pies.  

My coworker, Kathy has faithfully been following my blog and she knew the wheels were turning in my head for the next blog entry.  She kindly loaned me 75 cents to try out a peanut butter m&m cookie.  It took all of my will power to not eat it at work, I was going to bring it home for Drew and I to split.  I know my rodent of a cat, Monty, enjoyed the cookie because he managed to nibble a bit when I wasn't looking!  Well, I have to say we really liked the cookie.  Right away when I broke the cookie in half, I knew it would be good because it was not a hard snap, gentle break.  Drew thought it was "Good quality, not too raw and chewy, but not too hard or dry."  I mentioned to him that one of my coworkers, who shall remain nameless, thought the cookie was a little salty.  Drew said, "Salty yes, but it is a peanut butter cookie, what do you expect?"  This was no rinky dink cookie, it was nice and thick.  

I look forward to trying out other baked goods that she makes.  The pies she was describing sound incredible.  Well, her name is Amy and she has a Muffin Hotline where you can reach her to order items or to track her down: 518-524-2811.

You are making me hungry! Too bad you have your own washing machine now! Cause, you could have come to your mom's to do your laundry and brought treats from the muffin lady for her neighbors! Belated Happy Anniversary! J and R
