The County Fair....and a Muffin Recipe!

Brandie and Haleigh are in Mini 4-H this year. Mini 4-H wasn't around when I was a 4-H member, so it's all  new to us.

In Mini 4-H you exhibit a collection of, well, anything!

Brandie entered her collection of bracelets. She has beaded bracelets, fancy bracelets, grow-in-the-dark bracelets, and even bracelets for her American Girl doll!

Haleigh exhibited her collection of rocks from Sullivan Lake. 

I mixed up some muffins yesterday and took three of them to enter in Open Class. I was pleasantly surprised to win the Grand Champion for Open Class Foods!

Here's the recipe!

Easy Banana Muffins

3-4 Over-ripe Bananas
1 Yellow Cake Mix
2 Eggs
1/2 c Chocolate Chips, optional
1/2 c Chopped Walnuts, also optional

Mash the bananas. Mix in the rest of the ingredients. 
Fill muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake at 350 for 17 minutes.

You can also bake it in a loaf pan for about 45 minutes.

I just dumped in some chocolate chips and walnuts. I'm pretty sure there was more than 1/2 cup of each!

Congratulations to all of you! I keep intending to enter but nothing ever seems good enough when the time comes. I tend to give away the good stuff!

I guess the thing to do would be to schedule finishing the project in June or July, just in time for the fair, but too early to give it away for Christmas!
