Moist and nutty, these slightly sweet muffins are rich and moist from ripe bananas, buttermilk and peanut butter and a great source of protein from hemp powder.

…I wanted a couple of these so-called "boopie" glasses, because I intend to buy a table and set it properly for Thanksgiving this year, thank you very much, and I’d like to have something other than Mason jars for water glasses when I do.
These were the cheapest I could find, because according to the listing they were "dirty," and filled, inexplicably, with miniature Christmas ornaments that had been sealed inside them with glue and paper. (I’m guessing they were once a homemade party favor or hostess gift that got stuck in an attic somewhere for fifty years. There’s no evidence they were a real product.)
So the glasses arrived and I opened them up, dumped the ornaments into a bowl, and washed them up. They’re completely fine. Two "vintage" glasses for six bucks! (They’re currently going for about to apiece. No idea why, when there’s practically an unlimited number of them available online, but probably every woman my age is picking some up and bumping the price.)
The ornaments are tarnished and look their age, but they’ll be fine on our mini tree, so I’ll keep ’em. Well, except for that red plastic one. I tossed that because I didn’t like it.
