Coffee Streusel Muffins

I hope everyone had a lovely long weekend.  Yes I know the week is half way over and I’m behind on my blog.  I didn’t get a chance to cook or bake over the weekend, hence the tardiness on my post this week.

Let’s see… Chris and I bought a new dining room set over the weekend —yay! It’s a beautiful distressed piece, which I love and it will be delivered this Friday.  Kimi came home from her trip so we spent the afternoon with her.  Chatted up with our neighbor regarding the fence we share.  Was thinking about redoing it next month.  So yes, it was a busy weekend.

Chocolate Chip Coffee Muffins

Chocolate Chip Coffee Muffins

I just got back from a 5-day family trip.  We celebrated Thanksgiving in sunny Mexico! It was a good thing too because the week of Thanksgiving, it sucks to be at the grocery store.  Anyway —there were ten of us on this trip and we all stayed in a 3-bedroom suite.  Before we arrived at the hotel, we made a stop at the market to pick up some groceries.  One of which was instant coffee since we didn’t know if the hotel would provide any.  They did but only for a couple of days, as the coffee they provided were samples.  The hotel wanted us to purchase coffee at their on-site market.  Thank goodness for instant! We got a big jar of it which we didn’t finish so I volunteered to take the leftovers home.  Since I wasn’t really a fan of instant coffee, I thought it would be great for baking.  These muffins were delicious! You can really taste the coffee and the chocolate chips were a nice complement to the coffee flavor.  Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving (belated) to all!
