Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins}Muffin Monday

Welcome to Week Two of Muffin Monday.

But before I share the recipe for these lovely muffins I want to say thank you.

Blog reader Beth emailed me last week to say she and her friend Carol were going to be in Portland this weekend to run the Portland Marathon and wondered if I’d like to meet them for dinner Saturday night to carbo load with!  I am always game for a little carbo loading and meeting new friends so of course I said yes.  I did a little research on Italian restaurants in Portland and we chose Amalfi’s over on Fremont in South East Portland – a great choice.
