"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."

Leaky sink and breakfast puffs

This past weekend Josiah tore the sink faucet apart trying to fix a leak that has been around for quite a few years.  It was a mess.  But we finally got the parts that we thought should fix it and got it put back together.  The good news: the water comes out a lot faster than it had.  The bad news: it still leaks.  So I think we'll just let it keep leaking and try to remember to empty the container that is catching the drips more often.

Saturday morning, the day that Josiah tore the sink apart, I also made these yummy French breakfast puffs.  They are so good and so easy to make!

French Breakfast Puffs:

1/3 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk

1.  Cream together shortening, 1/2 c. sugar, and egg.  Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg, alternating with the milk.
2.  Fill greased medium muffin cups 2/3 full.
3.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

1/2 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter, melted

4.  Mix 1/2 c. sugar and cinnamon.
5. Immediately after baking, dip the top of hot muffin into the melted butter and then into the sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Serve while warm.

Thanks for sharing the recipe Aunt Joyce!  These are so good!!
