Use it up July: muffins
Inspiration was the box of "gourmet" cranberry oatmeal packets from Aldi's that was purchased some time ago as a "treat" for DD, who discovered that she didn't care for them. Sigh. Since this is use it up, use what is on hand month of July, they became the base of a batch of muffins I made, using the Tightwad gazette's basic muffin recipe. I also was able to use up an open jar of home made, whole berry cranberry sauce in the process, getting that out of the fridge, where space is definately now at a premium!
Soft texture, smell wonderful, these are being called Cranberry-Orange oatmeal muffins.
