Blueberry Breeze

We have the air off and the windows OPEN with a breeze blowing through. The oven has been on once (made more jalapeno crackers for breakfast), and soon blueberry hand-pies. I love blueberries but I've never made blueberry pie.

That changes, today.

You know what else? I wrote a lot before, formulas/bakes/recipes. But now ... with 90 percent of my stuff gone, I write MORE.  I don't have to move my piles of paper from one spot to another. Instead, I get to work.

How flippin' cool is that?

    1. Thanks. Yes. Tim is staining the new bedroom closet doors. Not to be confused with the closet that I demoed last week. That thing ain't EVER coming back.

    1. Fresh fruit is yummy.

      The blueberry hand-pies need to be baked on a higher temp but the innards were yummy.

  8. I had to have some work done in my studio , so I pulled out lots of stuff mostly paper and more paper that I use. Paints, books and more paper. I am cutting it down to one cabinet and the rest goes. I will use it all but I will find more .
    Right now a mess but that's ok.
    I sometimes wish I could "build" a whole new studio with all new working space but I have all the leftover kids stuff that works just fine.

    1. Cutting it down to one cabinet is a big step. Congrats. Will you donate the other stuff or is it stuff that needs tossed?

      Understandable about wanting a new space. I hope that you get that some day.

  9. Blueberries are a favorite of mine! Enjoy that pie...where are you that you can have a breeze, windows open and no heatwave?

    1. We live on a mountain and under big black walnut trees, which makes it cool. But we also live in a tin box, which can make between 3-4pm, very hot. But mostly, it's been a super nice summer, haven't felt much of the heat.

    1. The filling was yummy but next time, I will up the oven temp because the insides cooked faster than the outside. I only made two hand-pies so I have more filling to give it another go. Thanks for asking.

    1. Do you ever make blueberry low-carb pie for you and your honey bunny?

  17. That's pretty awesome! On second thought, I think I will just skip both the jalapeno and onion crackers, and go straight for the blueberry pie! That really sounds delicious!
