help me internets!

If a recipe for muffins calls for vegetable oil, is olive (extra virgin) okay or should I go out to the store (again!) and get something generic? (Is there a significant flavor difference, I mean.)

I also have safflower, if that would work.

ETA: thank you, Internets; Chad is on his way home with vegetable oil.

Quarter of ten

And the last baked good is out of the oven. That's two batches of chocolate chip cookies (60 total, done in parallel because my hand mixer couldn't do them simultaneously; yes, I know about the existence of stand mixers, but we don't have anywhere to put it and I don't bake that often); two batches of muffins (one blueberry, one chocolate chip); one batch of butterscotch crunch cookies (these barely count as cooking, as they consist of butterscotch chips melted and mixed with chow mein noodles); and one cheese bread loaf (made by Chad).

Hurry up and cool, baked goods, so I may face-plant into bed!
