Menu Board

I saw THIS on pinterst, and I totally wanted to make one for our house. I had all our favorite dinners on a spread sheet with the ingredients already (thanks mom!!) But I was always losing the paper, and having to search and search my emails for it... So I thought this was wonderful!!!

Instead of using cork board, I got a frame 11x14 frame at walmart. I covered the board behind the glass with the fabric, and put the ribbon behind it as well. I also just bought a plastic notecard holder & cut the top off for the dinner items.

Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins

This morning I took my little kiddo's to the farmer's market in our new neighborhood. Someone was selling a whole bag of Rhubarb for $1, so I of course had to buy it. I was planning on making a Rhubarb Crisp with them, but saw THESE muffins on Pinterest. I decided to try them out.

I totally enjoy them. I may have possibly eaten 2 so far... My kids thought they were cupcakes, and were a little disappointed at their first taste, but now they totally like them.

Super easy recipe. Will be making again.

Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh rhubarb

6 small fresh strawberries, halved. **I actually did 1/4**
3 teaspoons sugar **I didn't measure. I just pinched and sprinkled**

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat egg, milk and oil until smooth. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in strawberries and rhubarb. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Place a strawberry half, cut side down, on each. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375° for 22-25 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Makes: 1 dozen.
