The Last of the Blueberries

Every summer I go to the farmer's market and stock up on fresh blueberries, which I freeze in ziplock bags. Most years I put away enough to get me through January - which isn't bad - but it's always so sad when they're gone.

This year, I made it to the end of May - it was wonderful!

I don't bake with them as much as I used to, but I throw a handful into my oatmeal every morning. I add a little brown sugar and walnuts and enjoy a delicious and very healthy meal.

I usually make my oatmeal with the traditional rolled oats, but for a special treat, I make Organic Oatmeal of Alford from Scotland. It has an entirely different texture and taste - nutty, toasty and a bit chewy - it's really good! You can put it in the crockpot overnight and wake up to hot, cooked oats - just top and serve.

I'll still be eating oatmeal most mornings, but I'll have to settle for other fruit on top until blueberry season comes around again . . . .

Tutti a Tavola!

Scottish oatmeal in the crockpot is our favorite! I love waking up to a perfectly cooked breakfast.

I already miss fresh farmer's market produce! I can't wait for spring to come again.
