Foodie Friday

We've had some mighty fine eats around here this week - enjoy some bits and pieces from our menu:

Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones
adapted from Top With Cinnamon

1/4 C local butter
1 1/4 C organic whole wheat pastry flour
1 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 T organic coconut sugar (pressed through a mesh strainer for a finer texture)
1/2 C organic frozen blueberries
1 organic egg
1/4 C organic buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
  • Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, sugar
  • Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter until crumbly texture
  • Mix egg, buttermilk, vanilla
  • Add wet to dry
  • Add blueberries
  • On a lightly floured surface, form dough into large, flattish circle; cut into 8 triangles; brush with buttermilk and top with cinnamon/sugar
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or so

Whole Wheat Naan Bread
I originally posted this recipe here, and the only change I made this time was to use 2 T of local honey instead of sugar. Still a great recipe for pita-like bread. We had it for dinner, topped with grilled local chicken, organic veggies, and a homemade buttermilk dressing (John added sriracha). The girls had more naan this morning - I warmed it at 350 degrees in the toaster oven for a few minutes and topped it with local butter and coconut sugar/cinnamon. The girls had fun with their blueberries after eating the toppings off at dinner last night...

Homemade buttermilk dressing

Organic buttermilk
Organic sour cream (Wallaby brand is our FAVE)
Organic lemon juice
Kosher salt
Dried dill
Organic garlic powder
Organic onion powder

For a snack, the girls had organic cucumbers topped with dressing and, per their request, blueberries. They thought it looked like eyeballs. Yup, sure did. 


In a fry pan, heat some olive oil and red pepper flakes. Add chopped organic kale; cover and saute until kale wilts and is tender. Remove from pan; drizzle with lemon juice. In same pan, fry local egg. Salt and pepper. Eat.
