Saturday stuff...

I made the bee bandwagon blueberry muffins again and this time I used almond extract instead of vanilla.  Interesting.  I like them both.  For 75 calories it's not half bad.  Since it was not sweet enough for me last time with only 1/2 cup of sugar in 18 muffins this time I also added two packets of sweet and low.  That was just enough to bring the sweetness out.

I sure wish there were more restaurants with healthier choices.  If I were younger I'd open one.  Well, I probably wouldn't but would sure think about it.  It is just so easy to make things lighter and fresher and healthier.  I guess most people just want the high fat high calorie stuff.  I can do pretty good at Panera Bread but I get tired of the same thing.  And so I will cook at home instead.

So I am off having fun with my company.  Hope you are having fun too!


  1. Y'all have a good time...(did I say that right ?)
    In Tucson we would say YeeHaw !

    The Square Ones send woofs !

  2. Buongiorno!

    Tomorrow family reunion, i hope I can bake something today...
    No restaurant open, but a great cookbook of lighter food!!!
    Have a great Saturday!


  3. I'm making something that involves cake today. So I have said it, so it shall be done. I have a theme in mind... We shall see what develops.

    Have a fab visit with your visitor! big hughs xoxo

  4. I agree on the healthy choices at restaurants. You and your guest have a wonderful time together, ok?

  5. Hi Bee. Have a wonderful day my beautiful friend.


  6. Sweets aren't on my radar. Ice cream yes, but the rest I don't care about.

    You are right about eateries. They just pile it on and we don't go out much either. Just too heavy. I like the lighter fare too.

    Have a terrific day. I'm guessing we'll eventually know who your company is? Big hugs. ☺

  7. Bee, your muffins look delish!! Enjoy your guest.

    Big Hugs,


  8. Bee, Enjoy yourself and your company. So nice have someone to run with. Good idea add sweetners to the muffins instead of sugar. xoxo,Susie
