Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Like many of you, I too have a few New Year's Goals. I am hoping to organized my garage, and my craft room. I am hoping to find a routine to my blogging. I am also back at Weight Watchers.

I am fortunate that my employer offers Weight Watchers at work. The meetings are held every Tuesday during the lunch hour. The meetings will start up again in the next couple of weeks. At home we've decided to go back to something that Mr. Math and I used to do when all 5 daughters lived at home that helped us with our food shopping and planning.....deciding what our meals will be for the for the week. We have gotten away from that in the past year or so. What we've started to do is meet Sunday afternoons with Daughter number 3 and plan our meals for the week. After we decide what the menu for the week will be, Mr. Math does the shopping. Daughter number 3 lives with us and cooks at least two nights a week.

One of the hardest things for me when making my food choices is what to have for something sweet. I have quite a sweet tooth. Daughter number 3 has an app on her phone called Spark Recipes. She has used several recipes from this app for her cooking turn during the week. She of course has lived with us long enough to know about my sweet tooth. Last night she made a treat for me, and well, Mr. Math too.

She made a great Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin!! I've included the recipe for you. Easy, Easy, Easy!!!
