Blueberry Muffins

Blueberry muffins

Since we have so many blueberries, I decided that it was time to do something with them! What a brilliant idea, huh? 😛 I always make blueberry muffins with mix from a box, so yesterday was my first time making blueberry muffins from scratch. I used a recipe I found online for “To Die for Blueberry Muffins” and the muffins turned out great. My only complaint was that the muffins were a little too blueberry-y, perhaps because the blueberries were pretty big. The muffins sure made the apartment smell amazing, too. 🙂

Yesterday afternoon, Amanda called me to see if Nick and I wanted to remove another post-it note by going to Alki Beach Park yesterday evening. Why, sure! So after Nick got off work, we headed out to West Seattle. We walked along the beach and then went to Duke’s Chowder House for dinner. Duke’s was right off the beach, so we had a nice view of the water while we ate. Or well, Mom, Amanda, and Nick had a nice view. The setting sun was directly in my eyes, but Mom saved the day by sitting on a booster seat (lol!). Thanks, Mom. 😛

Amanda and I got the NW Coast Dungeness Crab & Bourbon Chowder (yum!), Nick ordered the Wild Copper River Cedar Plank Salmon (he loved the asparagus that came with it! O_O), and Mom got a triple chowder sampler with NW Coast Dungeness Crab & Bourbon Chowder, Lobster Pernod Chowder, and Cajun Chicken Corn Chowder.

    The comments they are getting scarce!! It seems you have integrated into Seattle and Nick and Marie have forgotten about their asian friends in the north eh?

      Yeah, we’re definitely feeling at home here in Seattle. 🙂 We haven’t forgotten about you, though! I was in the middle of updating the blog when you commented lol.
