For a Rainy Spring Morning

I just love the following feature in the Missoulian today about one woman's  Little Free Library. What a novel and genius idea! I admire this woman; her initiative and her desire to make free books available to those who want them. We should all be so generous in order to foster a love of books and reading in others. I hope you'll take a look.

I vividly remember getting my first public library card at nine years old. It was just after we moved to the place my parents still live. I could easily ride my bike to the brick building that was shared with the town's fire station, and although sometimes I would go with others, I was just as content to look, browse, dream and decide by myself. Growing up I was surrounded by books and by family and friends who were active readers. I am happy to say that I still am.


Banana-Blueberry Muffins:

1/2 cup butter
3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup ripe mashed bananas

3/4 cup blueberries, rinsed and patted dry

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Coarse sugar

Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and mix well. Add vanilla, then mashed bananas.

In separate bowl combine dry ingredients. Toss with blueberries. Fold into creamed mixture until just blended. Divide into greased muffin tins and sprinkle with coarse sugar.

Bake in preheated oven at 350 until done, 20-25 minutes.

Makes a dozen.

Enjoy your week!

Warmly, Margaret
