We have this every Christmas morning. When my older daughter was in 5th grade, she had to do a report on the state of Maine. We found out that blueberries are a big crop in Maine. We found this recipe on a bed and breakfast website and have been having it for Christmas morning since then. She was 10 in 5th grade and now she’s 30! We’ve been making just a half recipe for the 4 of us, in a square cake pan, but now we end up bringing it to Christmas Eve morning brunch, so now we make a 13 by 9 pan, so we have enough for our Christmas morning the next day.
Our temps lately have been in the 40s, so we currently have no snow. The header image is from a different year, but it is what the flower garden would look like if there was snow. It gets cold, the river freezes, but then it warms up again and the ice melts.
The dog picture is from 2013. That February, we got a lot of snow and it took Gary forever to blow the snow on the driveway. I was glad no one had to go anywhere that day, because our cars weren’t going anywhere.
