Tehina Muffins ( Halva muffins)

The other day I was out walking my dog and got a frantic call from my roommate… also out walking her dogs.

all these guys…. ye we have a zoo in our house.

Anyways… so  my roommate is squeaking like mad on the phone about a bird who sounds like a cat and nobody will ever believe her and i must come quickly.. bird.. cat… what??!!

I had no idea what the girl was on about. So I said ok ok I am coming….

We have a beautiful green path behind our house and thats where they were. When I got there she was staring up into a tree and said sssshhhh the bird is making a noise like  a cat.

I kinda thought the exam period had gotten to her head.

And then  I heard a cat mew.

And looked up into the tree and there was this bird:

Every time it opened its mouth a mewing sound came out. My roommate was jumping around like a crazy lady saying:

‘ את קולטת כאילו????’

do you hear??? do you understand whats going on here???? The bird is making a sound like a cat???!!!!

and then it went’ rraawwrrrrrrrrrr’ like a pissed off cat.

We were laughing hysterically and she was saying thank god you are here!!! No-one would ever have believed me!!!!

And then a quick google search told us they bird is a Jay known for mimicry. I felt stupid.. with my zoology degree and all.

Best I just go eat muffins.

So these were originally meant to be cupcakes and then I ran out of time to make the icing.. and because I am a greedy girl who loves to eat I still ate them anyway 🙂

And they were super delicious so I just thought to leave the recipe as it is! With no icing.
