Busy busy week

So what else is new... I'm busy every week. I have a waitlist of people wanting us to go on playdates but not enough days in a week to accede to all their requests. Was tied up with funfair preparations last week, doing up posters, etc. And was baking muffins half of Saturday and spent the other half helping out with the setting-up of the hall. Hardly slept that night as was afraid would wake up late with tons to do in the morning. Thank goodness was up by 7am and did some little labels for the foodstuff we were selling. Unfortunately, I did not take one photo. It was a great photo opportunity lost as I was too wrecked by the time the fair started and was busy on-site. My contribution to the funfair, initially, was sausages and fishballs. I figured they were very simple to prepare and wouldn't take up too much of my time. However, a week before the fair, a mum said she was contributing 250 fishballs, so ok I was down to only sausages. Having come across Cranberry's muffin recipe, I was keen to try it out. I sent them out to taste-testers a few days before the actual mass baking and the response was good. (WL, I don't think you'd want to touch any muffin again after this. Sorry about that.) ;)

For the fillings, I had fresh blueberries, peanut butter, Oreo. All were well-received. However, for the funfair I did not use blueberries (as they didn't cost $2.95 then. ;P). Instead I made chocolate banana. Unfortunately I didn't try any of that so I don't know how it tasted.

This recipe is a keeper. Thanks, Cranberry. I made another batch just yesterday, the day after the funfair because it was that good! :D

Nicely baked muffins, D! Me too, managed to grab a few boxes of blueberries when they were on sale (2.95/pkt), now the sale is over, is costly now:(

rita - Yes, I need to bake some for myself to try next round.

lcom - Thanks!

karlsfoodie - You got to be kidding, you great baker!

camemberu - Thanks, dear. Indeed I've been busy. Now taking a rest. :)

cranberry - Huh, I thought NTUC still has on sale? Anyway I bought 3 punnets and froze 2. But it's still in season and cheap. When not in season it costs maybe $6-7.
