Chocolate Chip Muffins

Do y’all know what a muffie is? Yes, muffie. It’s the top, fluffy part of a muffin. & also the name of my alter ego.

Every modern woman needs one. A pseudonym. A name you tell the Starbucks chick. A name you tell the bartender for your tab. A name you write down on the cocktail napkin & slide across the table to a cutie. (I have never actually done any of this but I am prepared in the event.)

Muffie just suits me. She is snooty & cute – just like the real me except in pearls & sweater sets. She sips white wine (red stains her teeth) & is the first to start the dance party. She lives by the “no new friends” rule & only likes socializing in intimate exclusive groups. She really just enjoys good, wholesome fun, ya know?

I really have to take this opportunity to thank Panera Bread for introducing me to muffies. Browsing their pastry selection one afternoon I came across these sweet muffin tops & I just knew. Muffie would be MY cute, fluffy, better half, too.

Muffie also bakes cause y’all know I don’t do that crap.
