Bad Blueberries


My breakfast of choice for a while now has been fruit smoothies. Berries, melons, bananas, peaches, oranges...whatever we have goes in the blender with a little yogurt and some fruit/veggie juice.

Mmmmmmmmmmmm.....

This morning though, something BAD happened. 

A GIANT bag of blueberries slipped out of my hands and EXPLODED onto the floor.


That's almost FIVE POUNDS of blueberries.


There were tiny frozen blueberries EVERYWHERE!


(no picture as I was busy losing my mind)


I ran around like a CRAZED LUNATIC, trying to find our broom. By the time I'd checked up AND downstairs to no avail, they'd started to melt. Stuck with my hands, I scooped up the berries as they smeared across the floor.

Here's something I didn't know: BLUEBERRIES STAIN EVERYTHING!


As you can see, there are blue spots EVERYWHERE! It's like HALF our kitchen!

Despite SCRUBBING and SCRUBBING, this is as clean as I can get it. The grout, formerly somewhere in the cream family is now a bluey-purple.


As are my hands.


Stupid blueberries and their delicious antioxidants.
