During the blizzard this morning, I made the children some cupcakes. Being that person, that dreadful person that causes the children to groan at times, I try very hard not to throw food out. I knew I wanted the frosting on the cupcakes to have some color. Therefore, I used the neglected blueberries that had been in the refrigerator for a few days.
The first thing Jack did was ask, “Gigi, what are those dark pieces in the frosting?” Yes, always the suspicious one. Anything remotely healthy sends them all in flight or fight mode. Of course, I had to say, “Just Try IT!” Like green eggs and ham, he loved them. I love the color. I didn’t even have to use food coloring. Put the blueberries in the food processor and done. Oh, and I used nothing but the crushed blueberries and powdered sugar. The mixture was wet enough to make frosting.
