We made some amazing muffins for breakfast.. They are by no means healthy..but delish anyways.
Cheddar Bacon Muffins
4 bacon strips crumbled
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 tablespoon dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
1 large egg well beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
4 oz grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons reserved bacon grease
Parmesan for sprinkling on muffins

Heat oven to 400, heavily grease a 12 cup muffin pan. Cook bacon, cool then crumble and reserve 3 tablespoons of grease. Mix ingredients, making sure to pour in cold milk before the grease if its still warmed. Fill muffin cups 2/3rds full or evenly to make 12 muffins, sprinkle a little parmesan onto each muffin. Bake for about 20 minutes watching closely until done.
Mine looked like this:

Here are some wonderful turnips from our garden. They taste sooo good, and fresh. Gene says they are the best he has ever had..
To cook them:
Slice and boil like potatoes(fresh ones need not be peeled), drain and mash adding butter, salt and pepper and a wee bit of brown sugar to taste and take away the bitter taste.

Here is a shy guy..guess he does not want his picture taken this week:
