These muffins were named a long time ago when we had to give all the food served a special name. Little Miss M.G. required it to eat. Seriously! If I named everything on her plate...she just might eat it. BBQ...became "Special Meat" Ranch Beans......were always called "Cowgirl Beans". So any kind of chili or soup contained "Cowgirl Beans".
She had a love for the movie.."George of the Jungle" M.G. would run around the house or any store thumping her chest and do the Tarzan call. It was quite hysterical and we loved it! Maybe when M.G. reads this post she will do it for me??? Please???!!! There was a certain road-trip to Colorado when we watched that movie literally the entire day. We quote lines from it to this day. "Watch out for that tree!" "George look pretty good in Armani.....pretty darn good!" "George have stirring of special feelings...right now." I will be watching that movie this afternoon....
In the meantime........we must eat "George of the Jungle Muffins" YUMMM!!!!!
