Yesterday my friend Anna (and the very talented cook behind Seasoned to Taste) connected me with a PR rep in town who was looking for judges for a blueberry recipe contest. I happily stepped up to the task.
There was blueberry peach jam, two different cobblers, blueberry bacon scones, oatmeal blueberry cookies, lemon blueberry cake and a peach blueberry pie. Um yes.
Most things were way too sweet for my taste but the pie was awesome! I don’t think I have ever had a homemade fruit pie before. I’ve had homemade pumpkin pie and lemon meringue pie and tastes of store-bought fruit pies. And I always thought I didn’t like fruit pies. Today, I recant that statement. It was sooooo good.
The winner was the blueberry peach pie, made by Lisa! It was her mother’s recipe and she’s actually never tasted the pie. ha!
I’m finally coming down from the sugar high. I happily enjoyed all the tastings though because I had had a killer weights circuit this morning! Plus, I walked to and from the gym. 🙂
Now, I’m off to get a haircut. I desperately need highlights but I waited too long to get an appointment on the calendar and I reached the "if i don’t get my hair cut today i’m gonna DIE" point so I called the local Aveda Grassroots Salon and am rolling the dice on a stranger stylist. A basic trim can’t be too hard to screw up, right? Right?? Wish me luck.
Chat at ya guys later! <3
