Blue…Part Two. [#WIAW]

by Sarah on January 30, 2013 · 22 comments

Even though I revealed last week I was at risk of turning blue through berry ingestion, I clearly didn’t care.

I probably should have finished the first second clamshell before I bought another.

But they are just so good.

So, Jenn, and all you potential baby Smurfs, welcome to last week’s What I Ate Wednesday sequel: Blue…Part Two.

With so many blueberries to consume, I’ve figured out quite a few things:

1. Blueberries, apples, and crystallized ginger are a tantalizing trio…

why not add a lake of maple-peanut goop?

…but pears will perform in a pinch.

what DOESN'T love grown granola make better?

2. Blueberries on top of blueberries (in Greek frozen yogurt form) is not flavor excess. It’s flavor enhancement.

apples, pomegranate seeds, and apple walnut love grown granola 'dust' helped, too

3. Blueberries were made for groovin’ with grahams.

cereal dust! happy dance!

4. Lemon with blueberry might be the typical choice, but orange makes a mighty fine mistress.5. Blueberry flavored peanut butter would be an amazing invention. [Oh, wait. Done that.]

Overall, I think I’ve been pretty creative.

I’ve taken a few (delicious) chances.

honeydew on hot oats? survey says yum.

But I haven’t gotten too crazy weird.*

*This week. Let’s not forget about The Great Kale Chip Bowl of Oats of lastweek….

spaghetti squash, tuscan herb hummus, nooch, mango-peach salsa and blueberry deliciousness

….yet. ;)

This all looks crazy GOOD to me. I love fruit with ginger. And cardamom. I’m putting that shizz on everything. Now if I only had sweet potatoes and vodka…

There can never be too many blueberries in one’s life. Coincidentially enough they were on sale in one store last week and another this week so you better believe I’m stocking up ;) . Even if the cashier gives me weird looks – she just doesn’t know about all of the combinations, right?!

Hahahaha! I love blueberries, too and recently – how strange that might be in the midst of winter – they are on sale like everywhere. And I am just not able to resist. Guess today’s smoothie will turn out pretty blue ;)

Not a fan of honeydew . . . It’s one of very few fruits that I don’t like . . . .but cantaloupe, that’s another story.

But I love the blueberry, apple and crystalized ginger combo!! Do you buy the crystalized ginger from Trader Joe’s? It’s my favorite!

haha I know what you mean about having to get creative with one ingredient…that’s kinda how it goes when you’re cooking/baking for one! ;)

I seem to do that with spinach since when I buy a bag I only have about 5 days to use it all on my own…which resulted in a green egg omelet in a wrap with more green on top. ;)

I just read like 4 of your posts because I thought they were all one big one so I will also say…wow vodka cauliflower crust?? I think this might have to go on my friday finds!! :)

I haven’t quite jumped on the blueberry train yet, as I am still fully immersed in the citrus and pomegranate wonders of winter, but once summer hits I may just rival you in berry consumption. ;-)

For a simple yet satisfying blue-licious dessert, you should mix those berries with some green grapes, a dollop of Greek yogurt and a sprinkling of brown sugar. The sugar and the yogurt caramelize to form a crack-alicious snack.

Are you having fun taunting me? Here I am stuck at work and you’re plastering blueberry porn all over the place! I can’t take it…I just CAN’T!!!
