Chocolate Muffins

Hi! It snowed a little on Saturday. Probably the first snow of the season. The high was 50F(10C) and it was cold!!! Oops, jo might laugh at me. Her place was at 15F(-9C)...

This is the same chocolate muffins as last time in a different style ;)

  2. Hi jose,

    Thank you! Try whenever ;)

    Our countries are close, but we just have Japanese new year's celebration. There might be some communities that celebrate it, though!

  3. Hi Ochi,

    Yes I will laugh at you, we're at 21 degrees now! Sounds like good muffins, but I must watch my weight. Should go to gym like you, but don't have energy! Chocolate has always been my weakness.

  4. Hi jo,

    I just can't believe the temp under 32F! I remember it was really freezing every winter in NY, but more than that, right?! brrr...

    I just had a chocolate. I think office work is so frustrating that I can't stop eating sweet stuff! Need to brush my teeth to stop now!!!
