Making Things: Bagels, Cheese and Other Recipes
|A couple of them actually looked like bagels!|

I had my mom and step-dad over on Sunday for Mother's Day. We went out to lunch, but I decided to make a dessert we could eat at home. I had bought a whole giant container of fresh blueberries at Costco and had some lemons on hand...I thought this flavor combination would be great in a dessert, but wasn't sure what I wanted to make. Actually, I started with breakfast. I had been wanting to try lemon poppy seed pancakes for a while, and I found this awesome looking recipe for Blueberry Lemon Sauce, which I thought would make an awesome topping. I was not wrong. I kind of cheated on the pancakes, though. I just added some poppy seeds, lemon zest and lemon juice to a double batch of Krusteaz pancake mix! It turned out pretty tasty, though.

It was a productive weekend, looking back! The non-food item I made this weekend goes back to my Apron Obsession. I finally made that harvesting apron -- but that deserves a post of its own. More to come!
