How did you get 2 dozen muffins to last you all week long? I made a dozen muffins this morning and they were gone within 30 minutes and that is only with 4 kids.

I think since I make them so often they have lost their "I must eat this right this second" status. A dozen rolls on the other hand is gone in seconds here since I don't make them very often.

I make muffins once a week sometimes twice a week if I am trying to perfect a recipe. But...I don't do snacks. So maybe that is it. I noticed you spent more on snacks than you did breakfast that week. Maybe that is it? Interesting breakdown.

Where do you get apples for $1.99? We cannot get a bag of apples for less than $5.00 here. Great deals!
