|Rob had his "Blueberry Grunt" with a side of vanilla ice-cream.|
Since my Mother's passing in January, I find myself longing for "home" more then before. I suspect it's part of my grieving process and have embraced it, doing what I can to bring a little more "down home" into my life more regularly.
One of the easiest ways to do this is through cooking. I suspect Rob wouldn't be to keen on beans and wieners for supper, a Saturday staple when I was a kid, so I've been trying some things I thought he'd enjoy too.
I remember my Mother making "Blueberry Grunt" when I lived at home, but never made it myself. I even remember my Dad eating it for breakfast, though it's really a dessert. This past Monday, I gave it ago.
I found a recipe on my favorite recipe site, allrecipes.com. It was super easy and turned out well. I will definitely make it again. The only changes I made to the recipe posted were; I used butter instead of shortening, and I had to bake it longer then 30 minutes, I may try baking it at 400 next time.

I even had it for breakfast this morning, I am my fathers daughter after all.
