BLUEBERRIES !!!

IMG_4824Our Farmer’s Market just opened this past weekend so I headed down to get a 5 lb. box of fresh blueberries. They are only locally in season a short time so I like to freeze what I haven’t devoured, though the first box rarely makes it into the freezer. I’ll be back for more next week 🙂

I am devoting the next few posts to blueberries, of course, starting with my very first attempt at a smoothie bowl. They are all the rage these days, so had to create one just for fun. I don’t normally have time for all the fancy decorative garnishes but it really satisfied my internal creative foodie side. Feel free to add your own garnishes.
