The Great Getaway - Day Number Five

We awaken to the smell of Jenni's famous "To Die For Blueberry Muffins." I'm including the recipe just in case you would like it, and believe you me, you would like it!


1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg

1/3 cup milk

1 cup fresh blueberries


1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 cup butter cubed

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

Combine flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder.  Place vegetable oil into a 1 cup measuring cup; add egg and enough milk to fill the cup.  Mix this with flour mixture.  Fold in blueberries.

Fill muffin cups right to the top (yes, the recipe really says to do this, but I'm warning you, it will really make a mess of your oven! Next time I'm filling mine 2/3 full!)  and sprinkle with crumb topping mixture.

To make Crumb Topping:  Mix together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour, 1/4 cup butter, and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon.  Mix with fork and sprinkle over muffins before baking.  Bake for 20-25 minutes or until done.

I'll tell you what, THIS is the little blueberry I can't get enough of! I could just eat her up!

It's time to leave now and as always we will miss you and look forward to being with you again. Thanks, Jenni for a wonderful time. There is something very special about your family and the beautiful spirit that resides in your home. We always feel so comfortable and welcome. 
We wish you lived closer, but then, would we appreciate you as much? Of course we would!
P.S. to the world -- These last four photos were taken by my Randy on our last visit to Seattle. Jenni has a collection of them to decorate her new home. 


  1. We missed you at rehearsal last night!!

    Thanks for the recipe! If it's been overwhelmingly approved by you, then it's a "must-bake" in my book.... btw, I LOVE the family shots you guys got.

    Audrey was telling us last night how lost she is without you-- locking her keys/violin in the car, etc. She will be GLAD to have you home!

  2. How fun!! I always love your posts!...and I'm super glad you posted that recipe! ;)
