New Home and New Paleo Muffin Recipe Preview

Things have been a bit crazy around here lately. Mr. What I Gather and I bought our first home together and are in the process of getting all settled in. We found a beautiful Victorian home built in 1918 and only 10 blocks from our previous home. You would think that would make moving easier, but it doesn't feel that way as I rifle through a sea of boxes just to find my toothbrush and something to wear to work!

 We spent most of last week packing and moving what we could before the big move on Saturday (we rented the big U-Haul and used every inch of it). Because most of my cooking tools were packed away, I didn't do much cooking last week. Lots of Panera salads and Thai takeout. When I woke up Sunday morning I decided I could not go one more day without cooking a meal. I especially wanted to cook because Kevin's parents were in town and I wanted us all to sit around the table and enjoy our first meal in our new home.

I spent about an hour unpacking boxes in the kitchen before I found everything I needed to make breakfast, but it was worth it. We were all pretty sore and tired from the heavy lifting the day before and were ready for a hearty, filling meal. I made my Zesty Italian Brunch Bake and a variation on my Paleo Banana French Toast Muffins that I hope to post the recipe for later this week. For now, all I can do is show you how tasty they were...I've got more boxes to unpack!
