I made some Blueberry Muffins (recipe below) from scratch this morning to go along with our freshly ground Eight o'clock coffee.
I couldn't find a napkin holder so I had to improvise. My son suggested I use my ring but I went one better. I dug out my great grandfather's wedding band! You can't say I didn't get creative with that one ;) Not too bad, huh?!
For any who might wonder how a wedding band could possibly be large enough to use as a napkin ring...he was 6'6" tall! Great Granddaddy Thaddeus had big hands.

No tea today but the muffins were good. I could have had tea with them but I much prefer coffee in the morning!
I didn't link up to any Tea posts today since it wasn't china. Maybe I will have time to go scouting around the thrift stores before next week :) I can only hope!
2 cups all purpose flour (I use bread flour)
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup oil
1 or 2 cups of Blueberries (depending on size)
Preheat oven to 400*.
In a separate bowl, mix the milk, egg and oil. Set aside. Sift or stir together all dry ingredients. Add wet to dry, stirring thoroughly. Add blueberries and gently stir. Batter is thick!
Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray, spoon in batter. Bake for 20 minutes in preheated oven, or until muffins are a light golden color on top.
Variations: Instead of blueberries, you can use chocolate chips, nuts, other berries, and flavorings. Be creative! This is a very versatile basic muffin recipe.
Sincerely wishing everyone a blessed day!
