It's Saturday morning and it's already too late to make bread in time for our lunch (the boys often have lunch around 11.30, even with morning tea!).
Besides, I'm bored with the usual lunch options.
I suddenly remember my lovely friend Tracey making savoury sausage muffins for the kids' lunch one afternoon when Luca and I went back to the UK last year. Delicious, and they came in neat little packages for the kids to unravel, plus they looked a doddle to make.
I didn't have any sausages – what am I saying? I don't buy sausages, so it's pretty unlikely for any to be lying around. Oh, how I long for a proper sausage.
But I did have courgettes, parmesan and lots (and lots) of basil in the garden.
So I made courgette (zucchini) muffins based on Hugh FW's recipe for courgette and pine nut muffins that I found in the Guardian.
Kian tucked into the last two on Sunday. Wish I'd made a second batch now...
