blessed by blueberries

we have blueberry bushes in our yard and this year is amazing! we are picking 3 cups a day and stopping because we cant reach some. by the next day its full again. crazy!
tonight my son and i are alone and after his nap i slaved over a frozen lasagna(poking those holes in the plastic are tedious) and he and i went-a-bluberry-pickin'. we were having such a dorky time that i figured why not bake. i used my banana bread recipe to make blueberry muffins. for half of them i made a streseul topping from that same damn martha stewart book and they were delicious. the batter was good alone. they turned out very moist and cakey...almost fudgy without the chocolate. Mmmmm
