Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Crumb Topped Muffins: Tart and Sweet combine to make these crumb topped muffins filled with fresh cranberries and white chocolate chips all covered in cranberry glaze.
I’m not sure if Hulu always had St. Elsewhere on it or not but I noticed about a week ago that it was.
I haven’t seen that show since it came out in the 80’s.
My parents watched it and so by default I watched it.
Right away I was in shock with all the people, often patients, smoking in the hospital.
In fact, they usually only yelled at the cardiac patients or lung cancer patients who were smoking in their room.
It was bizarre. 🙂
The other thing that was a BIG difference is how long the patients in the hospital.
Unlike most of today’s shows, St. Elsewhere was more soap opera like in that the story line continued each week.
So often you would see a patient for several show.
Because most people were in there for weeks and weeks at a time.
Ailments that nowadays they shove you out the door because your insurance says they will stop paying.
My husband was out of the hospital in 40 hours from the time he had a heart attack to the time they released him.
Not even a full two days.
I mean, don’t get me wrong, being at home and being surrounded by his pups did him good but we were both shocked as to how quick it was.
Part of that was that my husband was younger and already in shape to start exercising the day of his release.
I’m glad we aren’t smoking in hospitals anymore…but I do wish they would bring back some of the practices they had back in the day.
Hospital food though does always seem to be bad no matter what year it is. 😀
These muffins are a great balance of tart and sweet.
The fresh cranberries provide the tart and white chocolate provides the sweet.
I buy my powdered cranberry juice HERE. I use it in baking and in smoothies.
