Happy Sunday morning! Long time no see- er long time no blog for me! Been doing some baking…and lots of running…just no time to blog about it. Feel this is the busiest my life has ever been and it’s an exhausting whirlwind.
Baby #3 has been a stressful transition, mostly because of some health issues we’ve been trying to figure out over the last 6 months. Nothing major I don’t think; but still enough to cause stress daily. I decided a few weeks ago that we needed to celebrate every little victory with this Lil guy! It seemed like it was ‘always something’….one little issue after another, as soon as one would resolve it would be something else. Well celebrating every little victory, no matter how small, has definitely helped!
Well, this morning I am celebrating our breakfast! 😜 And Mr. Henry is making a comeback! I made blueberry teacake for breakfast (and turkey bacon and eggs- yum). Henry has slowly been able to start eating ‘real’ non- purreed food (just bananas, strawberries, and peaches so far) without gagging- well, victory- he had a few bites of this teacake and did great! He must have been waiting for the ‘good stuff’ lol! 😋 (I realize this probably isn’t the healthiest thing to give him but we will try pancakes next Sunday 😉…I honestly didn’t expect him to really eat any of it. A lot of what we try goes in and comes right back out…)
On a running side note, I too feel like I’m making a comeback! Thankful marathon training is going better than I expected. I’m totally committed and really looking forward to this marathon in December!! Three months from yesterday and I’m about 3 weeks ahead of where I feel I need to be.
On the ‘hunger for God’ note (since I updated on baking and running), I’m planning to read Soul Care again. Our church is offering the class/experience again, and as much as I’d love to, I just can’t commit to one more thing… especially something in the evening with a baby bath/bedtime of 7pm. I’d love for one or two people to read along with me and maybe we can talk weekly or something…if you’re interested please touch base with me! 😊
So that’s my update since it’s been soooo long.
And here’s a recipe for the blueberry teacake. It’s another goodie from one of those local church cookbooks. Those have some of the best gems. I also plan to post recipes for the lemon zucchini bread and smore cake I made last week. Stay tuned…😘
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk (I subbed almond milk)
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups blueberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Cream margarine and sugar. Add egg and milk. Mix well and then add dry ingredients. Spread batter in a greased 8×8 pan. Mix crumb topping: dry ingredients first then cut in the margarine to form course crumbs. Sprinkle crumb topping on top of the batter.
Bake at 375* for 40-45 minutes.
