|Maben showing Colton how to pick blueberries.|
|Maben upset that Colton is eating white and|
green blueberries, even though he keeps
showing him how to pick the purple and blue ones.
We had a lot of fun, even though it has been nothing but super hot here in Texas. The boys held out, I bumped into a great friend of mine and we brought home a lot of blueberries. We got just shy of 3 lbs. If you are wondering what that looks like, it will fill a kids sand pail (like the kind you find at the dollar store). So what do you do with all those blueberries, eat them and bake with them of course!
I rinsed them first (and busted out my camera to try out some new techniques). I think I did an excellent job figuring out flash in low light with a fast shutter speed. What do you think?
The first thing I made with my blueberries were some muffins. I have been tweaking recipes a lot in order to make them healthier and lower in fat. This recipe has a little zing with the added lemon, but it's delicious and refreshing.
The batch made 24 mini muffins and 7 regular sized muffins and I ended up eating way too many. Don't they look delicious? And now...I want to make more.
