july has been a very busy month for us.  i started working a full-time job in accounts payable at the beginning of the month.  it might be a foot in the door to an accounting department, but it's still a very dull job.  not much thought required, but it pays the bills.

charles has been super busy at his job preparing for a short trip to cincinnati at the end of the month for his brother's wedding.  he is a groomsman in the show.  he left today, and so far, his directions that he got from microsoft streets and trips have been wrong twice which has added a couple hours almost onto his trip.  once again, wisconsin is the black hole of that drive.

favorite muffins

1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1/3 cup milk (approximate)
1 cup berries

Combine the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a bowl and mix well.  In a glass measure cup, measure 1/3 cup oil, add the egg and beat well.  Add milk to the mixture in the cup to equal 1 cup.  Add the wet to the dry and mix just until almost combined.  Add in 1 cup of your favorite berries (or anything you like) and mix in carefully.  Don't over mix!

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  I always bake mine in paper cups.
