Summer Blueberry Roundup

Today is all about the blueberry!  Blueberries are Sir Streusel’s favorite summer fruit.  Strawberries run a close second, but I believe the blueberry wins being his favorite by a nose.  I am sharing a few of his very favorite blueberry recipes that  I bake for him so that you can use up all those blueberries you have picked this summer.  I am nice that way!

Strawberry/Blueberry Pie

Is there anything better than biting into a fresh strawberry?  When our punks were little, every year Eric would take them to pick strawberries.  Our little Paige would eat as many as she picked right from the ground.  She had juice running out of the corners of her little mouth.  One day as they were picking berries, she picked one that was covered in dirt and was so excited when she showed her daddy her berry.  Her words exactly, “Look daddy, it already has sugar on it!”

Strawberry Shortcake

This past weekend was beautiful in Pensacola.  Perfect temperatures, perfect weather, perfect day to take a ride and spend the day outside enjoying a festival.  Fairhope, Alabama has to be, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful Southern towns to visit.  It is about an hour from our home.  It truly represents everything Southern.  The annual Arts and Crafts festival was this past weekend.  We saw some amazing pieces but more importantly we enjoyed just being outside enjoying the glorious day!

Sir Streusel had a GREAT day!  He didn’t think twice about getting his picture made with these Southern Belle’s.  He may look confused, but trust me, he knew right where he was!

I can’t take him anywhere.

Cherry Cake Bars

I introduced my Sweet Mama to Snapchat.  I created a monster.

Sweet Mama and her “kissy” lips. Oh Lawd…….

Now I am just going to throw this next one out there on the table for ya.

I can’t stop looking at this picture. It’s hypnotizing. It’s mesmerizing. It’s my SWEET MAMA!!! YIKES!

Her crowning moment was the video we did.  This was a complete spur of the moment, off the cuff, first take.  She is a pro!

Now the scene stealer isn’t Sweet Mama, as cute as she is, it’s Big Daddy completely ignoring us just walking around, minding his own business in the background. #heaintgotnouseforsnapchat

I may have cried when I saw these.   #targetisdangerous

Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cake

So, this happened Tuesday.

Sir Streusel had his widdle knee repaired.  The day before, he threw his back out, like, really threw his back out.  If it was graded he would get an A+.  The major drugs he was on when we left the hospital made him forget all about his back pain.

We got home and then this happened.

I brought him home, got him comfy in his chair, a cup of coffee and cooked his breakfast.

Baby Stella whined until I picked her up so she could lay in Daddy’s lap.  She knew he didn’t feel well and cried until she got to him.  She is such a sweet little girl.  She only weighs 4 lbs. so I knew she wouldn’t cause him any pain.  Plus, he was on happy pills.  I mean the “Happy Happy Pills”!

The first morning after surgery was a bit of a challenge.  Lot of swelling, lot of pain and the major drugs had worn off so he could feel his back pain.  Poor guy.  I crushed happy pills into his breakfast….#iaintnofool

 Now we go through PT and he will be better than new.
