When life gives you sour blueberries....

make blueberry muffins!

I used to lifeguard and teach swim lessons at our town pool during the summer. Every morning the teachers woke up bright and early to teach the little ones how to swim. I think the main thing that kept me going was the breakfasts in the morning. We took turns bringing them in. One blessed day, a girl brought in the most delicious blueberry muffins I had ever eaten. Crumble topping, plump juicy berries...I couldn't stop eating them. After I hounded her for a good 2 weeks (maybe more) she gave me the recipe. Now, like I said, these are the most delish blueberry muffins ever. So, the good news is that I have the recipe for them. The bad news? I no longer enjoy other blueberry muffins nearly as much. So, if you are like me, this recipe will change the way you eat blueberry muffins forever.
· 1 cup butter
· 3 cups flour
· 1 ½ cup sugar
· 2 tsp Baking Powder
· ½ tsp Salt
Reserve 1 cup of the above mixture for the crumble topping
· 3 eggs
· 1 tsp vanilla
· 1 cup milk
· 1 ½ cup berries
Blend with wooden spoon. Fill muffin cups to about ½ way. Top with crumble mixtures. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Have you tried Crumbled Blueberry Poptart w/ a bowl of Frosted Corn Flakes? Good Combination..imho. Also, there was a time in my life that I crawled under houses killing those pesky termites and the like. Those were the days.
