Blue “HEAVEN'”

Blue, white and yellow is my favorite color combination and I’m always drawn to it. Here are some photos of some of my favorite things that are blue.

I Love homemade blueberry muffins…mmm…

INGREDIENTS

1 cup milk 1 egg 1/3 cup vegetable oil 2 cups self rising flour 3/4 cup white sugar 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners. In a large bowl, stir together milk, egg, and oil. Add flour, sugar, and blueberries; gently mix the batter with only a few strokes. Be careful with the blueberries, not breaking them open. Spoon batter into cups. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until evenly brown…don’t overcook or they will be dry. Serve hot.

This is a site that quizzes you on your choice of colors and gives you a psychological profile of yourself…fun, but I wouldn’t take it seriously at all…

  6. You have so many blues to offer today. I especially love the Fostoria cobalt blue and white basket.

    I took the test and this is my result:
    "Imaginative and sensitive; seeking an outlet for these qualities--especially in the company of someone equally sensitive. Interest and enthusiasm are readily aroused by the unusual or the adventurous."

    Thanks for sharing. Happy Blue Monday.
