Don’t people say that the fun is in the waiting?
In the chase, or the build-up, or the journey?
I’ve reason to believe that this is true.
In the past few months, I’ve been lucky enough to have had several experiences that I’ve enjoyed immensely and will cherish for a long time.
In retrospect though, I feel that the build-up to these events- the endless planning, the long discussions, and the anticipation was actually the most fun part. The actual event would pass me by in a flash.
So I’ve decided to really start enjoying the ride.
And in an attempt to savour the build-up to this festive season, I’ve made crazy-soft, melt-in-your-mouth banana muffins.
Easy enough to make in a hurry, these muffins are perfect with a warm mug of tea or coffee.
And I think they are the food equivalent of a hug 🙂
Happy holidays friends!
