I know! I’ll have a muffin! Ha!
I went into the Target on Friday with the intention of purchasing one thing: Dishwasher Liquid. But then I saw that blueberries were on sale. And they looked so very plump and delicious. And I thought about how I hadn’t had a blueberry muffin in a long long time. And…well…you can guess what happened next: I picked some up of course!
I had planned on making these Saturday night for breakfast this morning, but my plans were derailed when Eric announced early Saturday morning that he was interested in buying a car and he needed me to go with him so I could drive our other car back. The kicker? The car was parked at dealership in St. Cloud, MN. So after a ridiculously long day, about 14 hours round trip, 9 of which were driving…I didn’t really feel like making muffins! Then this morning, I slept way too late to make these breakfast!
Well, after lunch I decided that, yes, I still wanted muffins. They’d make a great afternoon snack and they’d be great for breakfast for the rest of the week! 🙂 I went back to my trusty red plaid Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, it never fails me! These turned out moist, juicy and delicious! I really like the streusel topping. It added just the right amount of sweetness and crunch. Totally hit the spot!
