I cleared a shelf in the freezer and made some OJ cubes.
After the juicing I did, I noticed a large basket of ripe avocados calling my name. So I made a batch of guacamole to go with our tostadas that I made for dinner last night.
I still have oodles of avocados, so I will make more today, and freeze some of it.
Then, I just had to try this recipe I saw the other day on my friend's blog. Linda lives in Canada, where they won't be seeing Spring for some time yet. But she and her hubby were just in Florida for a month to get away from the cold winter. She has a beautiful blog, and I hope you will go over and say hello.

Linda made this Blueberry Lemon Buttermilk cake the other day, and I had to do a search on her blog to find the recipe she had posted when she made it the first time. I knew I had fresh blueberries, lemons, and buttermilk, so of course I had to make this delightful cake.
Spray a 9 inch baking pan with baking spray
1/2 Cup butter, room temperature
7/8 Cup plus 1 T sugar ( I used one level cup of sugar )
3/4 Cup plus 2 T sugar for top of cake ( I used a scant 1/2 cup of sugar instead, and it was fine for us )
Zest of 1 lemon ( I used the zest of two lemons, I love lemon flavor )
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla
2 Cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 Cups fresh blueberries
3/4 Cup Buttermilk
Cream sugar and butter until fluffy. Add zest and egg and vanilla, blend.
Toss blueberries in 1/4 cup of the flour to coat. This prevents the berries from sinking, and they will distribute throughout the cake much better.
Whisk remaining flour, baking soda and salt.
Add flour mixture a little bit at a time to batter, alternating with the buttermilk. Fold flour coated berries into batter. Spread into a greased 9 inch baking pan. Top with remaining sugar. Bake for 35 degrees in middle of oven. May need more time to be set up. I baked mine for 40 minutes. Test middle with toothpick for doneness.
One last little note. I love to use Buttermilk in things when I bake. So if you buy buttermilk for using it in one thing, don't toss the rest. I poured the rest of the carton into cups. One cup each, and froze them.
I hope you are have a good week!!! Looks like rain is coming our way! I welcome it. The heat of summer will be upon us before we know it.
