Rat-a-tat-tat!! The landlord slinked over, suited up, long jet-black locks pulled into a man bun ready to paint our house with a moment’s notice. Hmm. This instant? Okay, it is your house after all.
Vibrant yellow (the color of my dreams)? Nope.
Perky rose (the current color)? Uh uh.
Beige terra cotta. Alrighty.
I’ll take it! A fresh paint job and I don’t even have to lift a finger!! So I put on a smile, tied on an apron, and baked a dozen banana chocolate chip muffins for the painting crew, which so happened to include my little girl’s 5 year-old bestie.Stirring together a batch of these banana chocolate chip muffins took less than 5 minutes. In fact, I took a break from my 30-minute workout with Katie to pop these in the oven. Ridiculously fast. As in, I-almost-feel-guilty-buying-store-bought-ever-again fast.
