Mixed Berry Muffins

Mixed Berry Muffins
Blueberry cake,blueberry ice-creams,blueberry pie,blueberry juice!!!Blueberry this and that was what my son has being asking for the past few days without a stop..the worst part is that he wants me to prepare chicken curry using blueberries. Oh my god this boy is so crazy about blueberries. I was wondering where he gets these weird ideas in making use of blueberries in cooking. He even asked my hubby to get him body wash,paste and shampoo that's made of blueberries. I happened to find some really fresh blueberries,blackberries and raspberries in the Sprout Farmer's Market yesterday. I quickly grab them and decide to make muffins using all these berries for evening snack once my son's back from school. I really wanted him to get a surprise. Believe the look in his really made very happy when he saw the muffins. I hope these muffins will shut him off from talking about blueberry .Actually I keeping finger crossed...let see what happens :D
