Cheater Snacks Take Two

I decided to try my hand at another cheater snack this week. Meet Blueberry Oatmeal muffins. Once again, I altered the original recipe, replacing white sugar with brown and vegetable oil with margarine. I also replaced a bit of the flour with whole-wheat flour. They didn't turn out badly, but are a bit flat. Next time I try this recipe I will tinker with it again, but they are pretty yummy.

I also made an amazing heart health discovery last night!! My Wednesday night dinner date, Charlotte, and I had a Two Heart Salad (palm hearts and heart-shaped beet cut-outs) and Curry Carrot Soup. Both were delicious, but I was shocked to discover I kind of like beets!! I'm sorry Mom, for giving you such a hard time when I was a kid. They're so sugary-sweet! I really wasn't expecting that.

Sorry for being such a bad blogger lately. I've been lazy with my posts :( Stay tuned for an investigative report tomorrow on yogurt.

Confession: I feel I must tell you all that I had cake yesterday. I tried to avoid it, but it was the boss's birthday and he saw to it that everyone tried the cake. It was delicious carrot cake, so not all bad.
