A photo of Mary I’ve decided that I’m definitely not a June Cleaver or Martha Stewart as far as doing entertaining goes.  I'm the only person I know that needs to keep a vacuum cleaner in the kitchen while baking. The days leading up to my open garden brunch held the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend was another one of Murphy’s Law.   

My blueberries were coming in, so Friday night after getting off from work late, I started working on a blueberry sour cream coffee cake.  My copy in my computer had part of an ingredient missing so I called Mom to get the amount and corrected it in my computer.  At this point I’ll give you the recipe so that you can see my dilemma. 

 Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake 

¾ C butter softened
1 ½ sugar
4 eggs
8 oz sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 C flour plain sifted
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt                                          


¼ C brown sugar
1 T flour
½ tsp cinnamon
2 cups frozen (do not thaw) or fresh blueberries

Dave, I'm getting a little too old to keep up with them also. They keep me in shape that's for sure. Hopefully when I retire in 3 yrs, I'll have everything squared away so I can enjoy just smelling the flowers and watching the hummingbirds from the screen porch.

Mary, you sure have a lively pack to live with. It would drive me to drink to put up with all their shenanigans. I don't know how you keep up with it all. I'm more of a quiet sit in the garden kind of guy. I've had my share of trauma and excitement in my life and now I like the slower paced time I spend just doing nothing. I do like a good project but it's now fun in this season of life where it gets done when it gets done. No time schedules or pressing dead lines are on the calendar. Have a great Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake day.
