Berry Lemon Muffins

berry lemon muffins

I must admit that I am not the biggest soccer fan, but the World Cup has been everywhere these days. I just can’t get away from it! My coworkers chat about the games at work, and when I am at home my neighbors are cheering loudly during a game or my husband is watching a replay. If you don’t already know, my husband is German, so we can all guess who he is rooting for during tomorrow’s game {USA vs. Germany}. I guess it is a good thing I am not as big of a fan of the World Cup as he is, but I thought a little teasing would be fun (and of course I have to support my country in the games!) – so I made these berry lemon muffins to show some team spirit. These muffins are made with blueberries and raspberries, and make a festive 4th of July treat too! Independence day is already next Friday, can you believe it?!

Now that I have eaten too many of these muffins, my night will be spent at the gym. I am going to try out this new dance class. I am nervous to make a fool out of myself, but it sounds fun and I miss dancing!

Who are you rooting for in the World Cup?

GO USA!

      Go USA! I am certain that if these delicious summer muffins were waiting for the team at the end of the game, they would take over Germany for the win. Take Care, BAM
