Sorry I missed several days of BEDA but my week went off track –
Wednesday the youngest grandson chipped a tooth at school and was in quite a bit of pain and I just focused on his needs.
Thursday my husband had an outpatient procedure done on his back and it was stressful but so far, it’s seeming like it might be a success- it takes time to know for sure but we are thankful it went as well as it did.
So Friday, I tired to catch up doing all the things I didn’t do Wednesday and Thursday. I got a lot done but I also wore myself out.
I’m pretty sure y’all can all relate……
So on to today
I’ve been looking for a good blueberry muffin recipe. I’ve tried several but they weren’t as good as I hoped. Y
I baked this version from an older Betty Crocker cookbook this morning. They were great!
2 of them are streusel-less as one grandson said he didn’t like streusel 🤷🏻♀️
I made the recipe exactly as written except I used wild frozen blueberries and added more cinnamon to the streusel.
We needed a few groceries so I went to Walmart this morning.
I didn’t look at all the prices but I was shocked to see the cheapest eggs were $3.08 for 1 dozen and small watermelon were $8.47!
Thankfully we have 2 sources of home raised eggs.
But I’m guessing all of you are seeing these shocking grocery price increases.
We had a really nice treat today that was free.
My daughter entered a contest sponsored by a new local company that specializes in charcuterie type snacks and 6
She won a dozen snack cups.
The cups were identical and I’ll try to list everything in 1 cup
Chocolate covered cashews and in shell pistachios on the bottom
A giant strawberry and 2 blueberries on a skewer
Giant grapes on another skewer
Mini Stroop waffle cookie
A flat pretzel cracker dipped in chocolate
A salami rose
Long piece of cheese- maybe a mild cheddar?
A long pretzel and a twizzler
All 7 of us thought these were a very fun treat.
This is not something I will buy but we live in a college town and I expect this business will do very well here.
