I was so sad when I came home from California and went to the grocery store where they had 5 pounds of blueberries on sale for a great price because they were out. I got a raincheck July 20th (last day of the sale) for 2 boxes. I had already told the girls we'd be making blueberry jam. Blueberries are Jim's favorite fruit, I think. Disappointment all around. The huge boxes are only available for a little while, so I asked at the front desk and in the produce section if they'd get more. Four separate people assured me there would be more later.
Today, after 5 trips to look if they're back yet, I asked the produce guy and he said they just got some in this morning. He had to get them from the back, but I am know the proud owner of 10 pounds of blueberries! I wonder how many jars of jam that will make?
While waiting for blueberries, they had pectin on sale (BOGO) and Wal*Mart, which I generally avoid, had a dozen little jam jars for $6 (and I had coupons!!!). The waiting was frustrating, but should be totally worth it when tomorrow morning I get to slather on some fabulous homemade blueberry jam on . . . some kind of bread. Maybe I'll make some English Muffins tonight. They won't heat the house too much since they get cooked on the griddle.
