my mother called this morning asking how many more blueberry muffins i had. apparently the ones i made yesterday - the ones that she thought were sort of throwaways and gave 2 to my 2nd aunt - were amazingly delicious when my mother finally tried it today. i asked her what was the difference. she said it wasn't very puffy, but the balance was just right, not too sweet, with a lot of blueberry flavors. i finally tried one myself for lunch. the crust and sides were a little hard, but i actually like a thicker crust/sides. though not puffy, the muffin inside was still very soft, and the combination of normal and wild blueberries along with some crushed blueberries mixed into the batter gave it a strong blueberry flavor. though the batter was purple, the muffin interior wasn't purple at all.
if yesterday's solar production was bad, today was worse: 5.82 kWh. not only were there clouds today, but at certain times of the day it actually darkened the sky so much it felt like twilight. i went out in the afternoon to get some more frozen blueberries so i could make another batch of muffins (12 oz. whole frozen blueberries $1.99, 12 oz. wild frozen blueberries $2.19). however, i decided to make them tomorrow morning, so i can bring a fresh batch to my parents' place afterwards.
i spent the evening consolidating more photos. i still need to transfer nearly 900GB worth of images from one drive to another, which will take a few more hours. for dinner i made one last italian sub combined with a mango lassi followed by some nian-gao.
