Grape-elling With Sweet Reality

In my pantry today:

  • 2 c red grapes
  • 1 c blueberries
  • 1/4 c white sugar
  • 1/3 c white wine
  • 1 c water
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal (any type but instant)

So those grapes that seemed so delicious and friendly because of that sale rack on which they so leisurely reclined? Yeah, over several days the entire bag has gone into just about every room in the house with the best of intentions and I cannot live this lie any longer. Time for a crumble.

Slice the grapes in half but not the blueberries. Put in a cold pan with corn starch mixed into water and white sugar (I have not opened this bag of sugar in nearly a year you guys), add wine and bring to a low boil on M. Reduce heat to ML and stir until thick. Mash together the last four ingredients above to make the topping and dollop on the grapes/blueberries; bake in a 350° oven for 25-30m and serve some hot then serve some cold — 4 spoons!

 

Blueberry and Mango C’s-cake Popsicles

In my pantry:

  • 1 mango
  • 1 lg carrot
  • 2 c blueberries
  • 6 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 c ground flax
  • 1/4 c unsweetened almond milk

Healthy! Well with the exception of the sweetened condensed milk, of course… but even still I’m banking on the vitamin content to nullify any sugar/dairy-related missteps. This pop-cipe tries to cover the vitamin A B C’s as well as omega-3s, and fiber ‘n junk. This will be an excellent daytime snack — between the heat and the phytonutrient content, I nearly expect to start sprouting oranges outta my armpits! 5 spoons!
