I'm sure y'all noticed I was absent from the blogisphere yesterday, and I have some good reasons for it too. The biggest and most debilitating issue was my shoulders, or the amount of pain I was experiencing from all the baking on Friday night (I just can't seem to pace myself). The other reason, well frankly I've been feeling a little down. No actually a lot, as you know I can't work or workout with my fun ailments. I think probably the no working out part has been the hardest part, considering I work for the biggest fitness company in Canada, you could see how embarrassing that is for me :( Luckily for me I have THE cutest and loving nephew of life, when I didn't answer my phone yesterday he (with the help of mommy) sent me a video saying "I love you auntie Jemmy and miss you and hope to see you before you leave for Texas". Granted the Texas statement was a little much for him to say, but it made me smile when I needed it the most. It picked my spirits up and now I'm trying to do more things to help myself instead of cuddling in bed, although I still like that part too lol.
However, that is not what today's post is about. It's all about the blueberry filling I made for the tarts ;), see what I did there lol? Do y'all love blueberries as much as I do? I don't know why I love them so much, but I even made a blueberry milkshake a while back and yes it was delicious! When I was little blueberry picking was interesting, and the only reason I say that is because you need to be fairly gently gentle when picking them. As I'm sure you could guess children don't always have a gentle touch, which means you end up with more squished ones than whole lol. None the less, I loved picking fruit as a child, and I hope to carry on the tradition with my children and even have my own little garden :) The process for putting the tarts together is the same as before but click here for the tarts and here for the pastry if you need a quick refresher :)
Again, like the cherry mix, this is so much tastier than anything pre-made or canned. It's not very sweet at all, and the cinnamon and nutmeg compliment the blueberries wonderfully.
I have now had six people try my little tarts of love, and I am happy that they've all enjoyed them very much :) Nothing makes me happier (well almost nothing), then having people enjoy the food I make them. A perfect example would be making dinner for my grandparents, even tonight when I made them dinner they were very satisfied with the meal. My grandmother told me she was very proud of me and how I turned out, nothing makes a child happier :) Until next time...........................................
