It’s a beautiful summer day here in Pittsburgh.
Blue skies as far as the eye can see. So I put some Electric Light Orchestra on the hi-fi and made myself these low carb lemon poppyseed muffins.
“Mr. Blue Sky” by the Electric Light Orchestra is one of my absolute favorite songs. (video below)
My husband and I played it right after we were married, as we were walking out of the wedding tent together. It was a pretty great start to a marriage.
And these lemon poppyseed muffins were a pretty great way to start my day.
They are blender muffins, so you just throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend away until they are mixed. Pour the batter into a muffin pan, bake them up, and soon you’ll have some lemony low carb muffins with only 3g net carbs each. But now I must get back to my Electric Light Orchestra.
Hope Mr. Blue Sky visits you today. (Hey hey.)
