Garlic Cheddar Cornbread Muffins

          
                  Hello,Monday! The weekends seem to go by so quickly now. We no more get our chores done and it's time to get ready for the new week once again. My husband and I were able to make a big dent in our Spring cleaning list so I can't complain to much. The weekends are going to be busy ones from here on out. We have a lot of plans for our garden and working on the yard in general. I need to work on our spare room and gather a huge load for donation. My need to make things as simple as possible is taking over..Simplify and down size is the name of the game these days.

Is anyone else Spring cleaning? I wish we were allowed to have garage sales but sadly it's not possible.

You know what IS possible? baking cornbread muffins whenever you want. Bake these up..you'll be glad you did!
