Savory spinach-cheese muffins

Thought I'd post the recipe for the muffins I ended up making for Liz's birthday picnic.

2/3 c skim milk
1 T vegetable oil
1 egg
2 c Bisquick
1/2 c chopped spinach
3/4 c grated cheddar cheese
2 T chopped onion
1 T minced garlic
1/3 c chopped red pepper

Preheat oven to 400 F. Grease muffin tins.

Beat milk, oil and egg until well blended. Add remaining ingredients; mix just until moistened.

Fill muffin cups 3\4 full. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown.

I started off with a recipe but, like my knitting, I just can never seem to stick to those. I think I used more of most of these than it says, because I didn't actually measure anything but the milk and Bisquick. I added the garlic and red pepper on a whim, and it was a good choice. And I burned my arm on the inside of the stove, but that's beside the point. I have an unsightly red blotch on my right forearm, but it kind of goes with the dark spot on the back of that hand where I burned it while baking acorn squash about 3 years ago.

UPDATE: These were a hit! I wish I'd made a double batch, but I barely had enough Bisquick for these, and my goal is to use most of what I own rather than buying more foodstuffs over these next couple of weeks. Waste not, want not. Also, as I was leaving the park I stepped on a piece of glass and it went straight through my flip flop and into my foot a little bit. Ouchies. Thank goodness for that recently-updated tetanus shot!

Happy Mother's Day

I had hoped to make a video of myself singing this, but as all I have is my crappy camera, this little girl will have to do.
