Aunt Julie's *Recipe Week*, Day #3: Support Our Troops!

We've all been thinking of Aunt Julie's folks, Ernie and Vera, today. They both Served Their Country with distinction in the Navy during World War II. Ernie, in fact, was in the first landing on Omaha Beach in Normandy; Vera was a Navy Nurse with her sister, Jean.

Since today is a Time of Remembrance, we'd like to honor our Veterans by sharing these wonderful family photos that depict the service of Ernie and Vera. Today is also Grandma Vera's Birthday. So we'll raise a glass--and a Cranberry Muffin, perhaps--to Family and to Grandma Vera's second sense when it came to yummy treats!

During Aunt Julie's First *Recipe Week* way back in September, we featured
Grandma Vera's Cutout Cookies. Today, we'd like to pass along Vera's recipe for Cranberry Muffins, a Pop'rs Family Breakfast Favorite!

Grandma Vera's Cranberry Muffins
1 ½ tbsp. butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup milk
1 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 cup sliced cranberries
Bake 25 minutes @ 350 degrees.
Makes about nine muffins, so make sure to double or even triple the recipe!

~Tomorrow: Julie Eliz's Wild Rice Soup!~

A very sweet post! And I'm not talking about the muffins either! lol

Stupid question, are you from Canada? I thought Remembrance Day today was a Canadian thing and the States had a different day. (I totally didn't pay attention in social studies in school!)

Great post and I just happen to have cranberries in my frig!!

Michelle said...

Oh YUM! Those sound really good... and how funny that eons ago (figuratively) 9 muffins was plenty and now doubling or tripling is considered a requirement!

Jen said...

that looks really easy and my kids love cranberries. I am going to have to try it.
