From my dad’s garden….

From our back yard.. and there’s more.. so far we’ve picked abut 12 cups of blueberries!

And if you want to know what I’ve been doing with those blueberries.. I’ve made Oatmeal Blueberry muffins, and this and this. All fabulous I might add….

I just did a search for my oatmeal blueberry muffins recipe and every recipe that I found (on my blog!) was not correct. Probably because I tweak them so often… but I’ve finally gotten a recipe that I like and use EVERY time I make them. Here is the final recipe:

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins (12 muffins)

1 1/4 c quick cooking oats
1/2 c ap flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1/3 c white sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 t cinnamon
1 c milk
1 egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 c blueberries (fresh or frozen)

Combine oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Mix in milk, eggs and oil.; mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes. (If using frozen blueberries, do not defrost. It may take a little longer in the oven but it’s best to keep them frozen solid) These freeze well!

The pie above is so yummy. I just had a piece for breakfast! It kind of turned into a runny mess when I heated it up but it was a good runny mess. It is probably best cold or even at room temp. I’m not complaining though.. I just wish I had some vanilla ice cream to go with it! Seriously, I had dreams of blueberries last night… hahaha…

Ok, I’ve seriously got to go and make my menu/grocery list for the week… and work on my nursery workers meeting… and unload the dishwasher… and load the dishwasher… and wash a load of clothes… and get ready for my Dr’s apt this afternoon…

And take care of my son… my most important job…
