A quick post with a sweet treat to show you. This is a new recipe I've just about finished, a Blueberry Coffee Cake with Walnut Streusel Topping. The testing has gone through a few phases, because I'm working with frozen blueberries and they affect the texture of the batter. Think I've got it now, but definitely want to test it again when fresh blueberries are in season. That's some time away, into August... I am really eager for summer fruit season, fresh organic peaches, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, plums... so much goodness to enjoy!
With Mother's Day this weekend, I thought I'd share something our youngest daughter said recently. Of course, when our children are young, they get used to calling us "mom" and "dad", so when they sit and think about our actual names sometimes, they find it a tad peculiar. Our daughter was talking about my name one day and said "Dreena"...... "sounds like cleaner". Uh-huh. I thought "that's a lot of what mommy does, honny, clean up"!! :) And, after a mom's day event at her preschool, later in the day she said "I had the best mother's day ever... you're the best mommy ever". Is there anything sweeter a mom can hear?
So, to all of you moms that are taking a break (as brief as it might be) from cleaning to read this post... I wish you a Happy Mother's Day! Take some time for yourself to relax, and also get in a few extra hugs and kisses from your kidlets. Oh, and of course, indulge in a sweet vegan treat as well. :)
