Needed something v-e-r-y light to top off dinner (more on that in a minute), so I reused leaves and managed to coax out a second, very subtle steep. Still has a lovely sweet dried grass taste; you just have to think about it.
Now, dinner. It’s so hot (sun was directly on it, but our garage thermometer registered 112 shortly after lunch) we’re pretending it’s dead of winter with curtains drawn, puttering with indoor crafts and projects…and the following recipe:
Slice pound cake. Melt butter in skillet. Coat on both sides and sizzle it brown on both sides. Set aside.
In the same hot skillet, dump fresh blueberries and drizzle in a generous amount of maple syrup. Bubble it to a froth.
Top pound cake with ice cream, then blueberry goop. Eat in a very comfy chair, because you will not be able to get up for a while.
