Blueberry Muffins and a reminder to self not to try to make two things at once even though I am pretty good at multi tasking!!

So last night I went grocery shopping kid free mind you, and I started shopping again at our local coop. I think I will hit Hannafords when I need certain non-coop things but main local just tastes so much better and for me I seem to spend less$123 this week!! (I think). So today we are full of local yummyness. This morning I made blueberry muffins with organic blueberries we picked on Friday, local King Arthur flour, Monument milk, and local eggs too. Into the crockpot went a local whole chicken with onion and garlic stuffed into the cavity and it ( the chicken ) had a rub down with spices, Hmm the house smells good. We also have root veggies and summer veggies that are going toget a roasting too.
So for some reason I have not figured out the taking pictures of food thing so it comes out looking blog perfect?? Is there a trick or is it the camera? Help please?? So no Picture but..... But this recipe is so worth sharing.
Hope you all are enjoying local seasoned goodness!
