When You're Poor...

You eat everything in the house.

I have started to make my way through the freezer and cupboards to see how fabulous I can be with what we've got.

I'm going on a west-coast trip and Scott is going on a three-week business trip, so I'm not really wanting to stock up on groceries until after we are back.

I googled "Sour Cream and Blueberry muffins" and took a look at the options... I decided to go with the first one that came up, I transcribed in onto some nice paper (in case it is worthy of keeping).

I don't have fresh blueberries, so I just left the bag of frozen blueberries out on the counter for about an hour while I waited for the butter to soften and did some dishes.

I think this is my first time making muffins (at least since I was a child and made them with my Grandma) and I think they look pretty good!

I'll let you know how they taste in a minute.

Nom nom nom.

They're really good.

Nom nom nom is correct. Tasty morsels they were. I love that you are an adventurous cook and baker. If you ever need hot sauce... i'll be on the couch.

Very resourceful. I'm trying to be budget-conscious myself as I prepare for a road trip. I wonder what you would make of the contents of my cupboard:

— Hominy
— Half a bag of stale Oreos
— Brownie mix
— Rice
— Canned pears
— Parmesan cheese
— Oatmeal
— Raisins
