advantages of insomnia

1. you can finish a book you started that evening, all at once ("Dead Bones" by Kathy Reichs-maybe it was the corpses that kept me awake)

2. you can have the daily paper read and the sudoku puzzle complete by 6 am

3. getting a head start on laundry (very quietly of course, so as not to wake the rest of the house) is never a bad thing

4. in the summer, you can get all of your days accounting done so you can spend the afternoon at the pool

5. you can catch up on all of the blogs you haven't read in the last few days

6. you can whip up these muffins, so they are all warm and melty when they guys get up:

Ham & Cheesy Muffins
2 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
1 c. buttermilk
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 c. diced deli ham
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar
Preheat oven to 450, lightly grease a 12 c. muffin tin. Stir together the flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the egg and buttermilk. Toss the ham and cheese in with the egg mixture, stir it up, and add it to the dry mixture along with the melted butter. DON'T OVERMIX (the secret to muffins in general....) Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full and pop in the oven. Turn it down to 400 degrees, and bake for 18-20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, then pop them from the pan, and go wake up the rest of the household!
