Blueberry's Bakery and Cafe

To know me is to know that I love to watch Food Network. Our life is so hectic that frankly, it doesn't happen as often as I'd like, and many times I catch shows later in the evening after the kids are in bed. I've become particularly fond of a little show called "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives." The host, Guy Fieri, travels all over the country to restaurants that fit this description. Usually, the owner and/or chef of these establishments are doing something unique (or just really, really yummy) with the food they prepare and serve.

I think that Blueberry's Bakery and Cafe would be a fit for this show. It is tucked away in the Woodlawn Shopping Center in old Littleton. On their take out menu it tells you to "look for the FAMILY DOLLAR sign"... if I didn't know better I might automatically walk the other way. But their pastries and lattes are right on the mark. My latest delight was the blueberry turnover. My morning was made on the first bite. My only complaint? I wish I had a bigger stomach. Yes. It was that good.

You'll also find a nice selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads. Tuscan Turkey and Brie anyone? How about the Portabello Wrap? Or maybe try "the best granola you'll ever taste" made right on site. I'm definitely going back for extra helpings here, friends. But don't look for an online menu. You won't find one. There is no website (insert collective gasp here), but you can find them on Urban Spoon and the reviews (like mine) are five star!

And moms, don't think I'm calling it a "dive" for the way it looks inside. This is an updated, contemporary cafe that is kept very clean with a staff that is extremely friendly. Kids can chomp on a bagel while you and your girlfriends chat it up! Hopefully I'll be seeing you there!

Mom Spot: Living Green Tip

I have one word for today:

compost
Anyone can do it, anywhere, any time of the year. Countertop composting may be your best option if you live in  a small place. But believe me, you want to get this stuff out of the house as soon as possible. Seriously.
That's why what you really need to know about is what goes in there and where to put it. I've read books on the subject (yes, actual entire books) and here's what it boils down to: Get yourself a good collection bin for inside and a realistic spot to put it outside (I use an old plastic ice cream container by my sink and then a standard bin with lid in my garden.)Stick with vegetable and fruit debris primarily along with egg shells and coffee grounds.Although coffee grounds can go directly to the dirt, all else needs time to decompose. Give it no more than 3 days inside and then get it where it needs to go!So where should it go? In a bin, in a ditch, or on a pile. You choose. (If you live in an apartment, don't think this i…

Psalm 16

This Psalm has been blessing me. I pray it will bless you too. Thanks to BibleGateway.com for making it so easy to share these beautiful words with you.16 Preserve me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
2 I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good apart from you.” 3 As for the saints in the land, they are the excellent ones,
in whom is all my delight. 4 The sorrows of those who run after another god shall multiply;
their drink offerings of blood I will not pour out
or take their names on my lips. 5 The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup;
you hold my lot.
6 The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. 7 I bless the Lord who gives me counsel;
in the night also my heart instructs me.
8 I have set the Lord always before me;
because he is at my right hand, I shall not be shaken. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my
