My own Buttermilk Cornbread with blueberries!

It’s a bit grey out there today, and drizzly too. Where are you Summer? You tease us with your eighty degree days, and pop back down to the sixties. Rather sneaky of you mother nature, oh and thanks for the sunny days to come when I’m working 12 hour shifts all weekend. Oh well. It’s a perfect day to clean out my freezer. I have a new fridge coming next week! I can’t wait. My current one stinks. It freezes stuff in the fridge, and keeps food cold in the freezer. I have to manually defrost the freezer, and most items end up getting freezer burnt, or melting, and re freezing which makes for ugly food.

I detest cleaning, but I love finding hidden gems when I do clean. It’s almost like a treasure hunt. Five bucks in a dress pocket, and fresh frozen blueberries in my freezer.

I have some zucchini tortilla soup simmering on the stove (I know, I know, I know, I said no more soup for the Summer, but come on, tortilla soup is the best! Especially with fresh zucchini from the farmers market).

I thought about making muffins, but then I decided on blueberry cornbread to go with my super spicy soup tonight!

This is another super simple recipe. It’s sweet, buttery, and delicious straight out of the oven. I can smell the butter and blueberries cooking right now. It’s tempting to just stand here and wait for it to bake, but I guess I should do something in this dreadful weather. I’m off to clean my hall closet, and then to the gym. The bread will just have to bake, and I will have to enjoy it later as a special prize for making a nice clean and organized home.
