Hello friends!  So sorry that we have been away for a few days.  I spent last Wednesday – Saturday at the Everything Food Conference in Salt Lake City Utah.

It was amazing; we met so many fantastic vendors and awesome food bloggers with wonderful tips on how I can improve my sight.  The world around us is changing so quickly and some days it seems like I am on one of those merry-go-rounds that are at the park, and that someone is pushing it faster and faster and I am just trying to hang on.  The world of social media is so different for a person that is older like me.

I might be more seasoned in cooking, but when it comes to computers and all that they offer, it is just like learning a foreign language.  Anyway with that said, it is time to take a break and eat some banana blueberry muffins.  I got a little side-tracked today and so I made two batches of these banana blueberry muffins because I thought I left the oil out of the first one.  However when I put them side by side, I really couldn’t tell the difference.  So I might have put the oil in the first one and just forgot.  I must say it is rough getting older!

Banana Blueberry Muffins

These muffins are loaded with bananas and blueberries and a zip of lemon.  Your family will really enjoy them.  I wish that some of you lived by me so that I could share them with you (since I have enough to share today since I ended up making two batches).  But with that being said, I will put some in the freezer for when it seems like there isn’t anything to eat.

One disadvantage to being a food blogger is that my children are SPOILED.  I don’t think that they dirtied one dish while I was gone to the conference.  Saturday when I came home, I loaded the cups in the dishwasher with the dishes that were there from Tuesday and started the dishwasher.

Now I don’t know about you, but we run the dishwasher every other day at our house and when I had all five kids at home we usually ran it every day.  I think there was a lot of fast food going on while I was gone to the conference!!  I keep telling them to save themselves and stop eating out.  You know; mom knows best.

However it did make it nice Saturday to pull out leftovers, so I didn’t have to cook.  As for me, all we did at the conference was eat.  I had to come home before I gained 20 pounds.  It was awesome.  Go enjoy some banana blueberry muffins.
