Another thing I'm thankful for is that I'm feeling better. Yeah!! Not feeling feverish, not achy. I'm moving better. I actually forget sometimes that I still do need to be careful how I move, until I move and the pain quickly reminds me. But so much better overall.
The blueberry thing-It turned out pretty good. Althougth I do have to admit I think I like pound cake better when it is fresh. Or maybe if I make it again I'll make the blueberries not quite as thick so the juices can soak into the cake.
So here is what I did.
Took about 2 1/2 c. blueberries, pureed them with 2 tsp corn starch, put this along with an additional 1/2 c or more whole berries in a pan, heated them up with about 1/4 c. sugar, til thickened. let these cool.
I whipped the Dream Whip, both packs (you can use regular whipping cream or cool whip), creamed the softened cream cheese. Mixed these two togther with 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Put this in refrigerator while the blueberries cooled some more ( put them in the 'frig too).
I broke the pound cake into small pieces. Start with a layer of these and then layer with the blueberries and Dream whip/cr. cheese mixture.
So much better the next day.
