Yes, we had a nice shower this morning; not enough to quench the thirsty plants but enough to make the air less yucky. Also, it was cooler so I baked orange/date muffins ( thanks to Robin of A Bird's Life for that recipe which we love), and an Impossible Coconut Pie. The latter because I had milk in the fridge that was nearing it's best before date and also because I feel I can eat that eggy/milky pie without any guilt whatsoever because it's healthy. Right?

You will notice there are only 11 muffins. I couldn't resist having one when they were barely cooled.

Thanks for visiting today. I appreciate any comments!!

  1. Yay for rain!
    Oh my! The muffins and pie look so good!

  2. No rain here yet, but real clouds instead of smoke!

  3. So glad for a bit of relief, for you!!!

    Oh mercy, do those things ever look gooood!!!

    I want to try an impossible pie, of some sort. Maybe a dinner kind, with meat... And do it with my G/F Bisquick. :-) It would be lovely, if we could both eat it, and enjoy it. But... Won't know, unless I do it.

    I looked up G/F impossible pie recipes. There are not as many, as for regular Bisquick, but some.

    I was thinking of a little hamburg, lots of veggies... something like that... And with those healthy things, like milk and eggs... Like you said!!!!!! :-)

    Hope your air stays better, for a while!!!!

  4. I wouldn't be able to resist either. They certainly look good.

  5. The baked goods look yummy. I love muffins: could you please post the recipe for the orange-date muffins? I would appreciate that & I'm sure other folks will also.
    Blessings, Sandy

  6. Hi Granny Marigold, I am so glad you enjoyed the muffin recipe! I love it too.
    Wonderful you received a bit of rain. This week we have had an inch and a half but we are heading into a warm, dry week so back to watering the gardens.
    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. The muffins sound yummy.😀

      I am absolutely craving RAIN right now, it's been over 2 months with barely a sprinkle, here at mid Vancouver island. 😣

      I hope you have a wonderful week, whatever the weather.🌼

  8. Ooo - I see that you give the recipe in your next post - thanks! Those muffins sound very good. My husband loves dates, and I love orange. Will need to try those. And your pie looks delicious. I'm sure it is healthy and guilt-free!!!
