I made blueberry muffins with almond streusel on top. As always, I didn't follow the directions completely and they turned out pretty good but I think they could have been better if I had just followed the streusel recipe correctly. Instead of chopping the slivered almonds into smaller pieces, I left em in their original form, which made for the topping a bit too chunky texturally instead of crunchy, as it probably should have been.
my poor excuse of an almond streusel topping

I have a strong desire to be productive today but my eyes want to shut for some reason.. I think a nap may be in order for this afternoon.
