The gift of Blueberries

blackberries-387470My sister Christi stopped by a few days ago after having been to a farmers market. She generously shared some of her findings with us, although according to Jacob it was all for him. In addition to a lovely butternut squash, we were happy to receive some organic blueberries. Jacob immediately set about eating a few of them.

Jacob, Mickey and I discussed what we wanted to do with the blueberries. They aren’t one of our usual berry buys, opting more for strawberries. But we finally reached a decision. Pancakes. And at a later time, muffins. So, that would be our Sunday brunch.

The results were wonderful! And we had fun too. Thanks to my sister for the gift of blueberries!

    Oh, I LOVE blueberry pancakes. Actually, blueberry anything! Look at that little man! Standing on that stool, he has already climbed up a rung on the ladder of independence!
