Lemon Poppy Seed Bread with Blueberries

If life gives you lemons, make lemon bread. Or something like that. In this case lemons were presented as the feature for Saturday Dishes so I made Lemon Bread with Blueberries. It needed some color and a twist. Get it? (A twist of lemon.) I must be tired. This has been a stressful week at work and it was cold again so I couldn’t even go out in the garden after work to get some relief. But baking is second best to gardening for me. So there stressful day! I made Lemon Poppy Seed Bread With Blueberries.

I’ve always been able to make-do. That was my momma’s favorite line. That and “when I get around to it.” Which meant to us kids – NEVER. It bought her some time and we usually forgot about whatever it was because we knew it wasn’t gonna happen anyway.

We weren’t exactly rich when I was a kid, but we never felt poor. My momma could turn a meal into a feast. She could make a simple family birthday into a very special day. She made Christmas happen even in the leanest of times and we didn’t know the difference. She knew what to prioritize to always make the best of things. That’s what I’m working on today. The bread was just a way to think things over. Baking and writing it down for you is a good stress reliever for me.

Hope you enjoy the bread. I’ll be in the garden tomorrow.

    What a lovely ‘twist’! Adding the blueberries is an inspired idea. What a lovely spring time bread.
