A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Apricots and Blueberries – 10 July 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

It’s a really hot day today! Our outdoor thermometer that is visible from inside our glass door registered 100 degrees F. just a few minutes ago. And that was in the shade!

We went grocery shopping early this morning and stopped at our favorite local farm market. Their apricots are juicy, sweet, and actually have a wonderful aroma! We bought some last week and more this week. We love to eat them raw, out-of-hand; and we also freeze apricot halves in small plastic containers.

After buying apricots, corn, romaine lettuce, red lettuce, cucumbers, broccoli, zucchini squash, sweet onions, and cabbage at the farm market, we went to a supermarket and bought six pints of blueberries that were on “special.” Other purchases included cauliflower, celery, bananas, cantaloupe, apples, carrots, and pineapple.

This morning for breakfast we baked a Blueberry Apricot Muffin Cake in the microwave oven. We ground spelt flour and oat flour in the “dry” container of our Vita-Mix blender and used the last of our frozen apricots and blueberries from a year ago.
