Blueberry Muff-yums!

Fresh Blueberries!

Back in a delightful June day in Kansas(betcha never thought you'd hear that sentence ever spoken!). The temperature hovered around 78 degrees, the golden sun shone brightly, and the cerulean prairie sky wrapped the scenery. I talked my family into taking me blueberry picking. We have a wonderful patch about 10 miles from the house(that's barely 10 minutes away on the highway) What a bonanza! We picked about 5 lbs. of berries(about $12.00 worth.) I froze them as soon as we got home and have been sneaking them in here and there for a month now and never showed you any of the treats I tried. Well, using this recipe:Blueberry muffin recipe, I have a winner!!!!! They are absolutely delicious and the blogger who wrote this recipe down is right about how inviting their appearance is. The smell through the house was incredible: the butter in the topping browning and mingling with the cinnamon, had everyone in my house at the kitchen ready to go way before the buzzer went off.

Suffice it to say, what a way to substitiute lunch with a delightful treat and I can say I got my "fruit" today. LOL.

Sneak peek at the hexagon project.....stay tuned!

Oh yum!

I haven't been blueberry picking since I was a kid. Sure wish we had some around here.

I may have to go buy some just to try that recipe!
