Ahhhhhh....! totally enjoying our March Break! Not doing too much of anything....some spring cleaning, which always makes you feel good, some outings with the kids, baking, watching movies, knitting, and just hanging out. Nope, cannot complain, not one little bit, and we still have one more week to look forward to.
Amelia had a friend over for the day, and I made one of our favourite muffin recipes, you should try it!

Sunshine Muffins: cut up an orange into 8 pieces, and place into blender(yes the whole orange) along with 1/2 cup orange juice,1 egg, 1/4 cup of oil, blend until smooth:: combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 tsp baking soda, 1tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt::add the liquid to the flour mixture and blend together:: you can add 1/2 cup of raisins or cranberries, and 1/2 cup of nuts:: I usually double this recipe and have added chocolate chips or nothing at all:: bake for 15-20 minutes at 375 F. Enjoy!

Have a wonderful week!
