Blueberry Nights

When life hands you blueberries make scones and get drunk.

The Husband was busy training for a cycling race and finishing up his final semester projects, so Lily, Poppy, the Monster and I had ourselves a girls’ day in. We made blueberry scones and watched Eat Pray Love in our pajamas. Then we decided a blueberry cocktail was the best way to find balance in our lives. Screw meditation. After that, we napped off our blueberry filled bellies. It was a nice way to spend a Sunday.

Blueberry Scone Recipe:

1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
1 tblsp baking powder
2 tblsp extra fine sugar
1 stick cold butter
1 cup milk
1 egg, whisked

Blend first four ingredients until reaches a breadcrumb consistency. Add milk and continue to blend. Spread dough on floured surface. Roll into whatever shape you fancy (I just shlopped it together in a ball cuz I’m lazy), brush with whisked egg and bake on greased pan until golden (about 25-30 minutes).

Blueberry Cocktail:

Soda water

Blend vodka and blueberries. Add a dash of soda water and splash of lemon.

    Blueberry has to be my favorite fruit. Sounds like you had a wonderful day.

  5. This day sounds perfect! I can handle the blueberry cocktail, but scones always intimated me. Perhaps the cocktail will help with the fear of baking scones!
