Weekend Roundup & Maple Muffins

If this post looks weird…something crazy is going on with my wordpress dashboard.  The format is all crazy looking.  Not sure what it’s going to look like when I hit ‘publish’. 

Some pics from the weekend

Sweet Cream milkshake and an old timey car from 1928.  It had the year on it.  Also had an Aggie sticker on the window.  Papa Lupiac would say ‘those are some good people right there’.  🙂

Also got a new convection countertop oven and needed to bake something small to test it out.  In honor of Canadian Thanksgiving today how ‘boot some maple oat muffins?  😉  (Recipe at the end of the post.)

Thank you to everyone for checking out my flour blend post.  It’s gotten quite a few more views than my usual posts so I hope y’all are finding it helpful or inspiring.  🙂

Hope your weekend was great and your week is off to a good start…or you’re enjoying the day off if you have it for Columbus Day / Thanksgiving up north.  🙂

Happy Motown Monday.  🙂
