Action shot – Trying to snap a pic of the last one as it is being eaten…
The name is true, these are great despite what some might consider an “offensive” ingredient: prunes. (full disclaimer: the muffins above don’t have prunes – apricots instead – but I have made these with prunes.) I think most of us consider prunes “old lady” food. Don’t act like you don’t know what I am talking about. Prunes are old lady food in the same way that fruit rollups are kid food and frozen burritos are college kid fare. Its the key demographic. But prunes have company. Here is my partial list of what I affectionately describe as “old lady” food:
- Cottage cheese
- Liver and onions
- Pimento loaf
- Boiled vegetables
- Salsbury steak
- Beer in a glass with ice (no? I guess we don’t know the same old ladies).
- These, however, were certainly NOT old lady food. We had them on a “breakfast for dinner” night with tofu scramble. yu-um.
- Now, I can’t get this bullet format to go away….ugh.
