The hunt for blueberries

This past weekend, we went up to Maine to see my brother in a summer theater company show. (Great job, Jared!) Wouldn’t you imagine that driving through Maine one might come across a blueberry stand? I mean really. It is supposed to be THE place for blueberries! Well, we couldn’t find any fresh blueberries to take home, but we did enjoy a slice of blueberry pie with a scoop of blueberry ice cream. We also returned to a wonderful breakfast place we went to last year, the Wild Blueberry Cafe in Ogunquit. Last year when we visited, they brought warm, fresh blueberry mini-muffins right over as we sat down. Apparently it’s a limited offering, though, because we were told that they ran out before we arrived. We didn’t get blueberry pancakes, but Ben did get another Maine specialty – lobster benedict.

Well, I guess everything happens for a reason, because though I returned home a little sad without any blueberries, I was delighted that my local supermarket was having an incredible sale – by 1 pint, get 2 free! I’ll take it :)

I already used up a whole pint last night, making two individual blueberry cobblers. I returned to the recipe I used a few weeks ago, this time cutting the crust recipe in half. They were *almost* as good as the blueberry pie we had in Maine, but a little less sinful. So easy, so satisfying, and I have two more pints of blueberries in the fridge if the craving hits again!

    We weren’t served blueberry pancakes at any of the B&Bs we stayed at in Maine! Guess it was too early in the summer. We did have some great pie though! I hope to make my first cobbler next week sometime if I can find some good fruit, maybe peaches.
