Memorial Day Weekend

I hope you all had a nice Memorial Day Weekend.  I made some red, white and blue strawberries. :)  I found them on Pinterest. 

I had so many blueberries left over. And I knew they wouldn't get eaten. So...   I made blueberry muffins. Lemon Blueberry Muffins. With streusel topping.    These will definitely get eaten.  

Cooling on the rack.   I think I have only made blueberry muffins one other time in my whole life. I don't know why. They aren't hard to make. The streusel topping is kind of a pain. But...   They are yummy.

I used a recipe in this book. The streusel topping I found online, and just added to the muffins before baking.

We went on a road trip for Memorial Day Weekend. (Sunday.)  I wanted to go somewhere that was in remembrance of those who have served. And there are a lot of Civil War sites in Tennessee...     So. We went to the top of Lookout Mountain. I thought that the Fort (Chickamauga) was there. But the fort is in Georgia.  This was the battlefield site for "The Battle Above the Clouds."  It was still really cool. A lot to see and do. There were at least two museums, lots of gift shops, an incline, and Ruby Falls.  We only went to the top of Lookout Mountain.  I took lots more pictures. But here are a few.   This is just a castle entrance to Point Park. As far as I know, it's just for looks.

Entrance sign..
A monument. I did not read ths sign...   

Lots of cannons.  

Me and hubby..

I finally got some post cards too.  I have not been able to find many post cards here, at all.  Not sure if there are many people who are interested in battlefield post cards....   But.  It is around Memorial Day. So... :P
