Mini Things.

I’m on a “mini” train this week.

Well, not an actual mini train…let’s just say “mini” trend.

I just want a magic wand so that I can “mini-fy” all of the food that I eat.

I mean, can you imagine mini-burgers? I’m not talking sliders here, people.

No, I’m talking mini-mini burgers…mini burger that are so mini that they are the size of your thumb.

But I don’t want just one kind of mini burger…I want 5 different kinds…like a fun mini burger sampling party.

Now, if only I can find someway to create mini peanut butter cookies.

I’d be set for life.

You know it’s Friday.

You know toasted coconut is involved.

You might as well just expect a zillion toasted coconut recipes from me this summer.

Don’t even act surprised when I post things with coconut in them 5 days in a row.

Coconut haters beware.

These muffins are what I’d like to call “poppable” muffins.

Once ya pop ya just can’t stop.

I wasn’t even a fan of those Corn Pops…more of a fan of Chex or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

When are they going to make a cereal with toasted coconut?

IMG_1988

That would be brilliant.

IMG_1989

I guess I will just have to come up with that one myself.

IMG_1990

Unlessssss…you just want to invent a cereal w/ coconut for me.

IMG_1991

That would be awesome.

In the meantime I will stick with these muffins for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Oh, there is espresso in them too.

Duh.
