Blueberries for Sal

This summer, I had the delightful opportunity to pick blueberries with my mother.  While I stayed with her the whole time instead of going home with a mama bear, the experience recalled warm fuzzies about one of my favorite childhood books.

 We headed over to Bybee Farms in North Bend...and I loaded up with 10 pounds of berries.

I'm so proud!!!
They provide buckets, you provide the picking power.  The extra cool part is they don't weigh you coming and going, so you can drop some in your mouth instead of your bucket while you're picking.

Then you can take them home and dump them in Greek yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, or freeze them for use at a later date.

OR you can use them to make muffins for Superman.

I made Caprial's killer recipe (with CSA blueberries, still almost as good as the ones I picked myself) and it was a big hit.  I don't put sugar on top, and I swap in protein powder and whole wheat flour, and add walnuts to make them healthier...this recipe is pretty flexible, so you can put your own signature touches on.

CSA berries!!!

I love baking on weekends!

Especially with Gregory Peck.

Try to use a vanilla or plain protein powder...
Cake Batter was a bit much.
