This Is Why You Should Never Underestimate Simple Toast.
Day 12. Recipe 12.
It's fantastic when something simple changes our lives. Take toast. It's just a piece of bread and yet so much can be done with a fundamental slice of crunchiness.
Like, getting kids interested in making something delicious in the kitchen.
Today's recipe was created by my kids. Sure, I helped, but together we developed this tasty treat inspired by today's Super Blue Blood Moon celestial event.
It was mind-altering to see them come up with ideas and thoughts on everything from the ingredients to the angle of the photography. My daughter suggested the lime juice; my son told me to photograph the toast on a black background. They both helped eat the blueberries while we all talked about the workings of outer space, stars, rocket ships and our moon.
So much goodness and learning came out of something so simple!
Once In A Super Blue Moon Toast
Serves 4 / 10 min prep time
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
- 1 tablespoon blue agave syrup
- 2 oz cream cheese at room temperature
- 4 slices white bread
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
Step 1: Place the frozen blueberries, lime juice, syrup, and cream cheese in a blender and blend until smooth.
Step 2: Use a 3-inch cup, press the lip of the cup into the middle of the bread to create a circle shape. Insert the bread into a toaster and crisp until golden.
Step 3: Place the toast on a plate and slather the blueberry/cream cheese/lime spread directly on the circle of the toast. Sprinkle with fresh blueberries and repeat the process with the other 3 slices.
Now my kids say "Enjoy the toast and the super blue moon!
Until tomorrow friends.
