"Your sister came over today and ate an entire carton of my blueberries just as quietly as a thief in the night. And no. Before you ask, it was not a small carton".
"Wait, wait don't tell me. She blamed it on the baby".
Blueberries are one of those amazing super foods that you should never deny yourself. They taste of summertime, good vibes and beautiful mornings (like this Cocteau Twins song). I enjoy mine in my oatmeal. Because I often feel guilty buying seasonal food out of season, I keep my freezer stocked with them. I first melt a dollop of butter in the pot. Then I add a generous spoonful of brown sugar. I add the frozen blueberries and allow them to soak up some of the butter and sugar while they melt. I never measure my oats because it doesn't really matter, I just stir in amount that looks like a small bowl. Last the milk, turn down the heat and stir. Voila. A fast, tasty, healthy breakfast in a matter of minutes.
Eat your blueberries, dears. Just don't eat your Mum's and blame it on your fetus.
