I’m in love.

I didn’t plan to fall in love this way.

I was actually hoping for Bjork to fall in love with this homemade blueberry sauce as it dripped off of a stack of Sunday morning Swedish pancakes.  But I fell for my own trick, and now my lips are stained purple and I can’t stop drowning foods in blueberry sauce.

As you maybe noticed from the list of top ten friends for homemade blueberry sauce, I’ve gotten really creative in the last 24 hours.  Chances are good that I’m going to turn into a Willy Wonka blueberry any minute now.  It was all worth it.

Love is a beautiful thing.
