Parmesan-Basil Turkey Muffins (Gluten Free)

During renovation you  begin to expect things to go wrong. Murphy’s Law holds true here I think! If anything can go wrong, it will! LOL and it has! But….my wonderful, amazing, dedicated husband has made me so extremely happy this morning!!! Today is the day I get my oven back!!! That means that I can cook again!! I’ve been having cooking withdrawals the last week….I even resorted to making my delicious dark chocolate no-bake cookies yesterday (yes, microwave cooking!). Yup…dug out my dishes and got started, then realized my almond milk had gone bad since I haven’t been cooking, so off to the store to get some! Like I said…Murphy’s Law! LOL. Anyhow they got made and are delicious!! That helped scratch my itch to bake, but…. I’m pretty excited to be able to have my stove top and oven back! And I even get a little counter space because I have a glasstop stove! Score!! This will make things so much easier for me! I was starting to get worried I would run out of things to eat, plus I’m really getting sick of eating the same thing every single day!!! I’ve got some reallllly good recipes I want to try! I missed blogging too! I LOVE being able to share my recipes with all of you!

So time for a little kitchen update…. The ceiling is up and about half the recessed lighting is in! Half the hardi-backer is down on the floor. The electrical is done except for the stove and under cabinet lighting, which will be done this morning!! Then we can get the sheet-rock up on the walls! I’m hoping by this time next weekend, we’ll have the walls and ceiling done and textured and painted too!! Then the floor…..that’s gonna be a long process! We’re also still trying to decide on a back-splash. There’s so much that goes into it, color, design, pattern, type of stone, etc! Any suggestions? It’s coming along though! Super exciting watching  (and helping of course!) it come together!

So….on to the main course here! LOL. I made these little bad boys right before my kitchen went down and they’ve been a life saver! I eat them plain without any sauce or anything, but that’ s just because I cant eat tomatoes! Hubby on the other hand had one on pasta with sauce and cheese, as you can see here. It looks a lot prettier with the sauce then my plain boring little meat muffin! They sure are tasty though! And they freeze and reheat really well too! It only makes 6, and the muffins will be FULL! So if you need more, just double it up! Or buy one of the 3-pounders at Walmart and make a huge batch and freeze! I do that a lot since it’s so much cheaper….make these or my tasty 30-minute meatballs! Those have been handy having on hand too! Now that my stove top will be up and running I can finally have some pasta again to go with!! Can’t wait to start cooking again! Stay tuned……and enjoy! 🙂
