Jumbo Blueberries

Nothing can make me happier than Jumbo blueberries from (of all places) Mexico! When these huge berries show up at Lucky's supermarket I'm there to buy 8 cartons of them and even that is not enough.

I usually shop at Safeway but Lucky's has a deal exclusively with Driscoll's to get their very best berries. Safeway will buy another brand or get Driscoll's from another area. The greengrocer at Lucky's told me this or I wouldn't have known.

All Driscoll's blueberries are not created equal.

It makes a huge difference! The berries from Peru are usually sour even if they look delicious. What a rip! I hate sour blueberries, all you can do is add sugar to them and use them for something else although most times I take them back to the store and return them.

Even the berries from California can't compare! I don't know what the deal is, but I never knew there were Jumbo blueberries and why does Mexico have them and we don't? What makes them so big and tasty? Do I want to know? (Uncomfortable laughter...)

My oatmeal without raspberries (didn't get any this time.) I make and serve it in a measuring cup. The dots are chia seeds.

My thing is oatmeal, in fact, every morning for breakfast I have my Red White and Blue Oatmeal with chia seeds. That is Quaker organic instant oatmeal with blueberries and raspberries. Oatmeal is the best breakfast food ever it sticks with me all morning and gives me energy for my morning bike rides.

Just take another look at that picture of the berries! When they say Jumbo they aren't kidding! These berries are the size of grapes! They are sweet tasting and I can sit and eat one of these containers of them like grapes no problem.

I also eat them on a bed of spinach with pears and walnuts drizzled with Trader Joe's Pear Vinaigrette Dressing. Doesn't that look delicious?

So when I hear Jumbo Blueberries it makes me very happy! I have the last 5 containers of them from Lucky's in my fridge waiting for me to eat them. It's almost breakfast time....

Jumbo Mexican Blueberries

I will eat them in my chair
I will eat them with a bear
I will eat them on a dare
I will eat them in a lair
I will eat them while I swear
I will eat them with a hare
I will eat them with much flair
I will eat them here and there
I will eat them anywhere!

To steal an idea from Dr. Seuss. If he ever ate these berries he may have written about them. (It could have happened!)

I hope you have the best day ever! In a few, after my oatmeal with Jumbo berries, I'm going biking and it's a beautiful day outside.

What food makes you slap happy?

I'm dropping the Keep On Bloggin'! It was great in the old days but now everyone has a website. I'm going to close each post with a GIF to think about.

I hope you like the geekiness of my Wonderland. This blog has been around for a long time and used to be a MySpace until I moved it over to Blogger. I wrote about a plethora of subjects and still post here today. Wonderland has a special place in my heart it taught me so much about writing, websites, and people. I like comments so don't be shy about what's on your mind but I do moderate them so give me time to answer.
