Happy Thursday to everyone!!  I know you guys are probably thinking isn’t this more of a spring recipe?!?!

Well, blueberries were on sale, and when I say sale I mean a really good sale, so I bought a couple big containers of them.  We, have been enjoying blueberries on everything.  Well, not everything……but you get the idea.

I made this lemon blueberry bread for the kids to enjoy for snack one afternoon and realized I don’t have this on the blog.  So, I had to make another loaf just so I could photo it and share it with all of you.  (Oh the life, it was so hard to find someone to eat this yummy bread…..kidding 🙂 )

Actually, it was gone right after taking pictures.  The kids all stood around patiently waiting (yeah right) for me to get done so they could eat (insert devour) this treat.

I barely got it over to the table for them to eat it!!  And I’m going to have to make another one because they didn’t even save me a piece!!  I think I will hide the next one and quietly sneak away for a mid morning or afternoon snack.  🙂 Hey a mom has to look out for herself!

Really though you guys need to make this bread.  It’s super simple.  You can even mix everything in one bowl (that’s what I do) to save some dishes.  So, don’t wait for next spring when lemon becomes popular again, enjoy this lemon blueberry bread today!
