Blueberry Pound Cake

Usually when I go to the grocery store, I rush through, hurrying to get out of that darn place. I never know what to get. What to make for dinner each night. Going grocery shopping gave me a pain in my shoulder just thinking about it.

Last night when I went, I had a whole new attitude towards the whole food shopping thing. I went up and down the aisles with with my eyes open this time and I discovered things that I never saw before. I was even excited. I made a mental note of what I wanted to make for meals. I'm going to take it slow, but I am anxious for my next learning experience.

I had decided to make pound cake with blueberry sauce, since I had a lot of blueberrie sitting in my fridge. I gathered up the ingredients (I did buy some sea salt-not part of the ingredients, but I've always wanted to buy some) and I drove home and started.

I mixed the ingredients together for the pound cake and stuck it in the oven. I prepared the sauce while waiting. Everything went well, except for the pound cake sticking a bit. Okay. This isn't so hard. Maybe I can do this after all!

The finished product.

It depends what your focus is on. Outside shows the blueberries off, inside makes the pound cake have a buttery yummy feel.
