Summer Indulgences

Forgive me, I haven't blogged in a week. I've been feeling quite overly exhausted all week and if I wasn't falling asleep while putting the Munchkin to bed, then I was falling asleep on the couch with my knitting still in my hands. I'm really hoping that this sleepy phase passes uber quick, it's making me feel like such a slacker in so many ways!

In the meantime, there really isn't much to report. My knitting has been slow going (thanks to the aforementioned sleepy state I've been in), which makes for poor blogging material. I did bake some apple pies last weekend, but forgot to take any photos and they were gobbled up pretty fast so I couldn't take follow up photos even if I wanted to. Aside from knitting and the pie baking, I've been doing nothing else but enjoying my favourite summer indulgence: fresh fruit.

I'll admit it. In the summer I tend to have a $10 a day habit. It consists of fresh, in-season fruit. Mainly mangoes, blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries. The past week I've been buying quart cartons of blueberries on a daily basis and have been eating them all in one sitting. Yes, I'm ashamed. But it tastes so good! How can I resist? I'm thinking sometime in the next week or two I should really try my hand at baking a blueberry pie. I'm also thinking of trying something that I've been thinking about doing for a while now...and that's make my own jam. That way I can enjoy the fruits of summer year round! Anyone have an easy peasy jam recipe they'd like to share?

  3. Mmm...mangoes! I'm always about the mangoes, but even more so when they are in season! I haven't tried them on PB and toast though...that's an interesting mix!
