They Call it the Blues

Here at #5 the kitchen is bursting with blueberries! The Gelderman family has come through yet again with another outstanding crop of berries and there are more to come next weekend. They grow two types of blueberries, one harvested in July and the other in August. Both are great but we find the August berries pull ahead in the taste department by a nose!

Just a few blueberry recipes for you to check out and try out…now I’m back to the kitchen for more berry action! Good thing baking is my thing, cause this week it’s been blueberry scones, oatmeal blueberry squares and of course muffins!

Without a doubt you couldn’t put together a list without pie and this is our house favourite!

And then to prove there’s more to life than pie…

Blueberry Muffins
Blueberry Lemon Loaf
Blueberry Almond Cake
Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins
Blueberry BBQ Sauce (which is awesome)

Happy blueberry eating to you!

 

The End of July

And that means putting on those thinking caps figuring what to cook for that special Leo celebrating a birthday.  In this case, me!!!  It’s no longer July…but it’s still summer and just think of all those people you can impress by inviting  them over to share an alfresco dinner!

What that meant, here at #5 was putting our heads together and figuring out our next challenge on the Kamado Joe! This birthday girl had the idea of a brisket roaming around in her brain for a few weeks.  So…when that was suggested it was a “GO” from everyone.

And all that remains to be said is WOW the K J rocked it big time!  Our hipster butcher texted that it looked awesome!

Our menu:

Brisket with Ancho chili dipping sauce, corn on the barbecue and onion/cheese/poppyseed rolls made by the birthday girl.  We used the recipe for the rub and sauce but changed up the way we cooked our brisket as this recipe uses a Weber.  We made notes if you would like them!
