How do you say "I care a lot about you" to a group of teenagers? Well, there is the obvious answer, that you could just say it :-) and perhaps I will try that soon. For me however, the way that I often say "I care" is through something that I have mixed together, baked up, and handed out with love.
That is just what I did on Monday as my AP students came to school bright and early and took their mock exam. They were greeted by pans of peanut butter chocolate chip muffins as well as these more savory sausage, egg, and cheese muffins.
I am not sure I they got my message across, but the muffins were all gone by the time the 185 minute test was over.
Would you like to say "I love you" to someone special? Perhaps you should bake them something warm and yummy!
