This week, same stuff at the CSA, except they had red peppers, so I got a few of those. I traded the peaches for cantaloupe… and I only took one picture.
So this week, I really only saved $4.00. I feel like I’m getting stuff I need to find stuff to do with.
In more exciting (?) news, blueberries were on sale for mucho cheap this week- $6.88 for five pounds. I couldn’t pass this up. I got a box, and I had blueberries with yogurt on a few times, I made blueberry muffins, and froze a bunch. Here’s the process.
First I washed the blueberries in small batches.
Then I paid them on cookie sheets to dry off. I picked out all the icky ones and got rid of any stems that were left on.
When they were mostly dry I put them in the freezer for an hour or so.
It was so easy, I went and bought another box. I have two almost full gallon ziplocs that I can take out as many blueberries as I want at a time. I did the same thing with strawberries this spring, except I sliced those.
We’ll use them for smoothies, muffins, pancakes, etc. Here’s a pic of some muffins I made with the fresh ones. After I made these, I made a batch of mini-muffins and froze them for lunches, too. Yum-o!
