A photo confessional.

Do you see this foolishness here? Ok, so many many people keep their freezers packed to the gills on a regular basis right? Right. Not me. I hardly every shop the freezer section and when I do it is for veggies or oven fries. So even though I have been the "I want to vomit to get rid of the nausea" queen of this household I am still having cravings that make me almost panicky. Panicky people. Panicky. In my freezer, at this moment are no less then six types of bread products, FOUR kinds of ice cream, three kinds of chicken and on and on the craziness goes. Today I HAD to have chicken patties. Old school ones, like the terrible for you ones. Slathered in mayo and ketchup. mmmmmm. We went to the grocery after taking Moses to the park today and I happily pushed the enormous cart that Moses insists upon using (the little car ones). Parked myself in front of the Tyson frozen chicken section and scan the shelves for my fix. Tenders, nuggets, fillets, ahh there are the patties...wha-what! Out? They were out of patties and tears immediately sprang to my eyes. Over chicken patties people. We walked through the rest of the frozen section and came back to settle on fillets. Not quite what I had in mind but it worked. And that is the basic story of my days lately. My life as a crazy person who cries over chicken patties. My nausea has not gotten any better but my cravings and emotions are getting crazier by the day. :) Still love me?
Yesterday morning before the nausea set in I did manage to make these tasty treats...since blueberries are so cheap this time of year...you should try them...almost good for you with two cups of berries and two cups of oatmeal. Served with vanilla ice cream makes a tasty treat.

Blueberry Crisp

2 c. oatmeal
2/3 c. flour
1 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. melted butter
1 lg. can blueberry pie filling (I used 2c of fresh berries instead)
Mix everything but the pie filling. Put 2/3 of the mixture in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Cover with pie filling. Top with remaining 1/3 mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Makes 15 servings.

I am going through the same things you are going through, except Colleen is throwing up instead of me! I think I would rather have it the other way around, so at least only one of us felt crappy! At least feeling bad means that it is going as planned! Have a great day!

I found your blog through Meg and I even linked it on my page, I love it. I start my mornings with checking the "blogs" and this was a great way to start my day here in Paris. Your blog always make me smile. What a great post! I must say I love the freezer shot and the photographer in your header.

...tried your blueberry crisp for a little social gathering. It was much adored. So much so it was being snacked upon before dinner was even served!
