Blueberry Shortcakes

Happy Canada Day! (plus a few).. We won’t talk about my slowness at posting.  Nope nope..

The wind here has been relentlessly blowing against my every effort to get exercise.  Who knew that wind could do that.  On Wednesday we had an Ultimate Frisbee BBQ, where the cold wind thwarted my desire to even get up out of my tight huddled group.  I could have frozen, you know.

Let’s not even talk about running.  When it’s this windy on my route, I feel like a blimp.. kind of like in a dream where the harder you try to run, the slower you go, as though the air has turned into a thick, goupy molasses.   It’s not exactly great motivation.

So I consoled myself with these blueberry shortcakes.  I made some fresh blueberry syrup (blueberries simmered in sugar), plopped that on some lemon cream scones followed by whipping cream, fresh blueberries, and repeated.  Breakfast, lunch, and dinner of champions.  The running can wait for tomorrow.

About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

    Mmmm that looks yummy!
    The nice thing about running in the wind means more resistance which means for more effort spent and a more efficient workout – right??
