Coffee Klatch: a social gathering for conversation while drinking coffee.
Let’s drink delicious coffee and gab about our lives! Our current topic is Gilmore Girls as we are re-watching the entire series leading up to the release of A Year in the Life on Netflix!
Today’s recipe is Coffee Cake Muffins! The girls love a good muffin from Luke’s and coffee cake is made to be paired with coffee. What could be better? In the episode where the church bells are working, Lorelai asks Rory what she wants from Luke’s. Rory replies, “Some coffee, a muffin, and onion rings.” So that’s how we’re serving our muffins. I couldn’t decide between the pairing of muffin with onion rings, or Lorelai’s first date with Jason. So I had them both. Recreate their grocery store picnic with a salad and mac and cheese from the prepared foods section, a fun flask, and sour cream and onion pringles.

I grossly miscalculated this viewing schedule and am too far behind. The good news is that now I have to watch one season for each of the next three weeks. 22 episodes in 7 days! Woooooo.
