Lemon Blueberry Knots
So this is it folks. We are t-minus 6 hours until the kid needs to be at the recruiting station. His room is packed up and clean, boxes are stacked in the garage and his duffel bag is waiting by the front door.
After a 2 weeks visiting with friends, running errands and getting ready everyone was under strict orders to be home for family time starting Friday afternoon. We had a dear friend over for tacos, and then it was just us.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that most of Saturday revolved around the casa kitchen. It’s just where our life takes place.
Early in morning the kid and I had the place to ourselves so we made these super easy Lemon Blueberry Knots. Rolls for breakfast are a family favorite and this recipe is a great shortcut when I don’t want to make full on breakfast rolls.
We opted to eat this batch of knots plain with extra blueberries, but a simple lemon glaze or even a sprinkling of confectioners sugar would be tasty.
Hopefully my directions aren’t too hard to understand. Please ask questions if you need to!
