Snow Day - Clean Out The Cupboards Cooking Fiesta

Another crappy blizzard in the fine Province of Alberta so I am staying in today. Pot roast with veggies are cooking away in our crock pot so dinner is covered. I then decided to see what items in my cupboards needed to be used up. The result? Lemon blueberry/cranberry muffins. Yummo

Used up:
3 eggs (sell by date January 31/2011-did smell test and they are fine)
1 box Dr Oetker lemon box cake (bought about 1 year ago for .50 cents with coupons)
1/3 cup cranberry sauce-kind with whole berries (leftovers from Christmas dinner-frozen)
1/3 cup blueberries (frozen-found on sale last summer)
1/3 cup oil (pantry item)

Approximately 20 small muffins for approximately $1.75 out of pocket and one step further ahead in my quest to be less wasteful.

At the time of writing this post 6 were already consumed (kids are over this weekend)
