Banana Maple Muffin for 1

I made you a banana muffin. Just one.


Why just one?

Because no one else in the family likes banana flavored things. Matty B and Miss Rae will eat bananas, but no banana themed foods. Except, remember those Runts candies? The ones flavored/shaped like bananas? Yeah, I bet they’d eat those.


Why just one?

J Man won’t touch banana anything. I offered him a bite, he smelled the muffin and said, “it makes me shiver!” I don’t think it was a good shiver.


Why just one?

Because J Man doesn’t need 72 matchbox cars and I don’t need 72 muffins.


Why just one? Because it’s a Costco sized muffin and no one should feel deprived with a Costco sized muffin. P.S. I miss Costco.


Why just one?

Because sometimes, you can’t be trusted around two. Picture Matty B and two large shortbread cookies from Panera. I should’ve told him they were banana flavored. Instant self control!
