Foodie Friday: Blueberry Muffins

Bandwith made blueberry muffins for his grandma.
A mix, but love was added.
Mother is two weeks post-op, and she's able to move around with her walker. The bad news is, while Dr. Gollum moved our new china cabinet, he smashed his finger. 13 stitches later (and the threat of a possible skin graft), he's in the bed with Mama.
He says the cabinet was definitely NOT WORTH IT.
Mr. Linky awaits your recipe:

  1. Michael, I'm glad to hear your mother is able to be up and about and is doing better. Give her a hug for us, will you?

    Oh no! A smashed finger for Dr. G? It sounds so painful ~ I hope it heals quickly and that a skin graft is not necessary.

    Heart be still, your new cabinet is gorgeous. I love where it is placed, but I'm so sorry the mishap happened while moving it.

    Hopefully the blueberry muffins will lift everyones spirits a bit. From a mix or not, they are beautiful and look delicious. I love baked goods, pastries and such under a cloche ~ so pretty!

    Sending healing wishes and prayers to yours. ((hugs))

    Thank you for so graciously hosting us in spite of all that is going on in your life right now. xo ~m

  5. Dr. G is so gracious, even if his finger hurts. I'm making him take vitamin c for fast healing.
    Thanks for the well wishes. He will need them. Today, he was bitten by Paco, the new miniature mule, and kicked. And now his finger. :-( Mom is thrilled to have have him as a room mate.

  7. Glad your Mom is on the mend....I absolutely hate it when my Mom is ill! And then your hubby....what loving husbands won't do for their wives! The blueberry muffins look so delicious and you always seem to make everything look even more special by the way you display them. Hope everything at your place will be back on an even keel very soon!

  9. Evening Dear Gollum. Oh, it's great to hear your mom is better and getting up and around. Poor Dr. Gollum! I'm sorry to hear about his smushed finger and the stitches! I know you're a nurse so your family will be grateful to have you and bandwith. The muffins look great and I know the blueberries have to be healing!
    Be a sweetie,

  12. Just popped in to see if there was an update on your mother. I'm so happy that she is mending quickly but so sorry to hear about poor Dr. Gollum. I think he made a valiant sacrifice for that beautiful cabinet. Great purchase, Michael! I'm sure the muffins will make both patients feel better.

    Thanks for allowing me to be a part of Foodie Friday. This is my second time to participate, but as you can see, I'm still having trouble getting it right!! I wish Mr. Linky offered a "re-do"!!

    Many blessings!!!

  30. It's nice to hear that your mom is doing well. I love the cabinet and the wall color. I am more of a pastel person with lots of roses everywhere - very shabby chic & a little french country. My husband wants one room with no roses...I might let him get his way.

    I posted a recipe for quinoa - if you've never tried this grain you should. The name looks funny but it's absolutely delicious and so easy to prepare.

  34. OOOH ... that's a lot of stitches for a finger! Plus a bite and a kick? Please tell Mom and Dr. G I hope they are all recovered soon.

    I'm loving Bandwith and his contributions to life on the farm.

  38. Well Michael, 1. Happy your Mom is getting up and around a little bit, that certainly makes her feel better I am sure.
    2. Sorry about the Doc, men get in a hurry sometimes and also think they can do it by themselves. Hope he is on the mend.
    3. The muffins look great and at 4:oo am, I will take a couple.

    Happy Foodie Friday and hope the weekend brings better times.

  39. Thanks so much for the well wishes for Mom and Dr. G. Both patients are much better.Mom even went outside for a while this morning. Her back surgery seems to be a success. As to Dr. G, we'll know in a few days about the graft. Poor guy was staring at the armoire this morning and shaking his head. Bandwith is going to the grocery to cook lots of comfort food. Then I'm going on Really Rainey's wonderful diet.
    Love to everyone...

  40. Haha... I Miss "G" I stopped by to with your family well and saw your post about going on my diet... If you would like more information e-mail me. I have a lot of information for you. And here is the link to my weight loss blog:

  41. Gollum, sorry to hear about the good doctor's injury. Hope he feels better along with your sweet mother.

    Bandwith's muffins look delicious, and your cabinet looks great! Did you do anything to it yet, or opt to keep it the same? I think it looks great in the room.

    Happy FF!

    XO,

  43. OMG, just when you get so excited that your cabinet is going to be moved in place, Dr. Gollum gets hurt. I hope he is feeling better and glad to hear that your mother is doing much better. Gosh, I hate it that you get one feeling better and another is hurt. I hope things get better for you this week.
