5/11 Blue Monday

bluemonday It’s time for Blue Monday hosted by my friend Sally at Smiling Sally. Don’t forget to visit her site to see links to more participants!

Yesterday my husband mentioned he saw quite a few bags of blueberries in his parent’s freezer…. not the store bought kind… but the picked fresh and frozen…… and I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind! I asked him to grab me a bag (or two) when he goes back to take them their groceries (we have been shopping for them the last few months).

I love blueberries…. fresh….

What is your favorite way to eat blueberries? Do you have a favorite recipe?

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog ……

  3. I love each and everyone of these food items, I may have to work hard to get them off my hips but it would be worth it. I love blueberries. I usually take the kids to a local farm to pick our own. I love that they know that good, nutritious food does come from trees and not the freezer.

  7. Stop it! I am so hungry now! Everything looks wonderful. I have a peach blueberry cobbler that I love to make in the summer. I also love to freeze bags of blueberries when they are cheap at the store and then add them to cereal in the mornings. Linda

  10. Hi Susan, Happy Mother's Day and Happy Blue Monday, your Blueberries look so delicious, we like them just with yoghurt in the mornings they are packed so full of goodness :-).
    I also wanted to thank you so much for the "one lovely blog" award you gave to me a few weeks ago, we have been so busy around here that I had not been able to blog, but wanted you to know that I appreciate your kindness and will accept this award and display it with honour, have a wonderful week, Kathy.

  25. Mmmmm, Susan, I love blueberries! They appeal to me any way at all except in a bowl. Hubby likes them in a bowl with cream and sugar but I prefer them in a recipe like those you showed above. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful Blue Monday.

  26. It all looks yummy, Susan.
    The last picture shows how I usually have blue berries, with a little whipped cream added. I picked up some raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries, Saturday. I'm mixing them together with a banana, this morning, for breakfast.

  31. You can't beat a good blueberry pancake with lots of syrup, yummy!!!! I also usually munch on a blueberry scone with my latte over at my favorite bookstore. I can spend hours at B&N munching, sipping and drooling over design books. I try not to drool on the books. Have a fab week.
