After a lot of rain last week (5″ in 48 hours, plus more during the week), we are having a nicer week this time around. Temps are lower, A/C is off, windows are open. All good!
Last Wednesday, the grands were over. They helped Pa make brownies. Always fun! He happened to flip a bit of dough onto Rose Red’s show, much to her consternation. But they all agreed the brownies were delicious.
When Pa asked if they wanted sharp cheddar cheese for a snack, Rose Red asked if the corners were sharp. Thankfully, not.
Today, I made blueberry muffins…more like blueberry cupcakes. They’ll be a nice snack later in the evening or with a cup of coffee for breakfast.
I used the recipe from Sweet Pea’s Kitchen blog. Made mine with light sour cream instead of yogurt, baked them at 350 for 23 minutes. I skipped the sugar syrup step and poured the lemon glaze on while the muffins were still warm.
Here’s the menu for this week. Salmon and shrimp early on, as DD brought it home from the city when she came by over the weekend. Need to use it first.
