Create in a Jiffy

By Mike Johnson

It's an easy recipe.

Empty the mix into a bowl. Add one egg and a 1/4 cup of milk. Mix. Pour into nine muffin liners. Bake 13 minutes.

Total cost is less than a dollar. Minimal effort, maximum results.

Because we're so far from a grocery store, we keep our stock of perishables low. Eggs and milk keep long enough for us. Bakery goods do not. So we tend to make our own.

Jiffy muffin mix is a hedge against time and money. The box lasts a year so we can stock plenty. With a little effort and some ingredients, it becomes something "fresh" on demand. Better, it does so at a fraction of the cost of a pre-made muffin.

You're the mix. You're good for 80 years. Everything else in life is the ingredients you add to make something "fresh." You can do this in a jiffy or you can sit on the shelf for years. The latent potential of your mix lasts as long as you do.

The ingredients can be as simple as a new thought, an imagined desire, a new experience or following the trail of someone who has already achieved what you want.

You're also the baker. You pick an outcome then collect and mix the ingredients that provide the desired result. Or you can just randomly toss stuff in the bowl and see what comes out.

Either way creates.

Just remember that you have to eat your own cooking.
