I bought the ingredients for these muffins a while back, so I figured it was about time to make them. They were tasty. They had a good nutty bran flavor and the right concentration of raisins. Unlike many bran muffins, they weren't too dense. The sour cream provided a richness and tang that went well with the bran. My only complaint is that they were a little too chewy for my taste. I would have preferred a slightly tenderer muffin. They were very good though, and I would certainly make them again.
Another relaxing post-thesis weekend! Today Matt attempted to teach me to drive stick shift. It went about as well as one could have hoped. I learned how to get the car into first gear, and from first into second. I'm pretty good in the empty parking lot, but as soon as there are other vehicles around I get a little too nervous to drive smoothly. It was my first lesson though. I think with more practice it will come together.
Tonight I went bowling with Ricky, Matt, and Matt. One of the Matts and I had a small wager on each of the two games and I lost both of them! Very disappointing. The first game I lost by a fairly narrow margin, but the second game I got creamed. I bowled badly that game and Matt bowled extremely well... what can you do?!? I do love bowling though! One of my goals for the summer is to bowl more. I haven't beaten Matt yet. We tied once, but I want to pull out a win!
