My Therapy...

Chocolate Muffins

Something frustrating happened last night and this morning, so I made these in the late afternoon to pamper myself. While baking these in the oven, I gutted a couple of fish to let my aggression out. :O

A nice teatime with these muffins healed me. And a good thing is that I have more than enough fish fillet to make meuniere for my supper tonight.
Cooking/baking can be pretty therapeutic, you know.

Yes, cooking can be very helpful. So can drinking French wine while cooking. :-)

Thank you. As it is often said, I think chocolate makes the world a better place. Right?

Oh, you, too? Glad to hear that. : )

Ah! You guys really know how to enjoy life, don’t you?

Oh, you poor thing. You are frustrated, too? Welcome to the club. ;) If this makes you feel any better, “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts.” This is a great finding that LPC shared in her post a while ago. (Thanks, LPC.)

Oh, it was nothing serious. Sometimes a rich and old woman can be so hard to please. That’s all…
BTW, just let me know when you get upset next time. You can clean my room any time. ;)

If I’d have to deal with such a hard-to-please woman a couple more times, soon my freezer would be full of frozen mackerel fillets. Hahaha…

I think its effectiveness is pretty much established and known worldwide. BTW, what do you think about fish-gutting therapy?

There's something about muffins....doesn't seem to matter what kind they are, they are always soothing. Maybe it's the size/shape. Hope they made your day better.

Hi Lydia,
I totally agree. I think there's something special about its size and shape. Yep, they definitely made me feel better. :)
