Hello, everybody! The Fresh Pioneer is back with a delicious blueberry muffin recipe. I've been sick as a dog with a terrible cold, but it's gradually getting better. I now have a voice, although my kids really preferred the silent me, I'm sure.
Anyway, does anyone remember that show, "Frasier"? Before I got married, I didn't have a TV for a long time, and then someone gave me an old, tiny set. I was never a TV watcher, but suddenly, living alone, I started turning it on, just to see what was happening in the world. Frasier was always on when I got off work and I fell in love with the comedic writing. One of my favorite characters was Daphne, the Cockney-accented maid. And some of the funniest lines I ever heard her utter had to do with MUFFINS.
"Now me, I could eat a muffin a day, some days even two knowing they'd be free. So that'd be... ten a week, fifty-two weeks a year, for at least another... forty years, which works out to... Twenty thousand muffins![pause] My life suddenly seems long, measured in muffins."
That scene never fails to make me laugh!
( Pie my husband ate by himself. WHY DO I NOT HAVE HIS METABOLISM? )

Mo's, the famous seafood restaurant. Scattered up and down the coast, it's not a fancy place but the food is delicious!
My five year old is entranced at the idea that local kids can catch their own dinner. I was less entranced, but I did take pictures.
And one last picture in case Mary Curry decides to stop by. :) The lighthouse at Heceta Head!
Until next time, my friends! Meanwhile, back to my Monday deadline! Happy muffin-making!
