As blessed as I feel to have the military provide me with constant healthcare some days those military doctors just drive me NUTS! This morning I waited for 3 hours to see a doc and then it took me another 2 to finally get what I actually came there for. Needless to say I was a wee bit annoyed by the time I actually made it to the office today. But after constant harassment on my part and the help of a very nice gentlemen at Balboa Naval Hospital I finally got scheduled for a CT Scan to find out if I have a kidney stone.
When I got home from work today I felt the need for some therapeutic baking before I started on dinner for Jamie and I. I found some beautiful blueberries at the store this weekend so I decided to make a recipe that I had seen on Andi’s blog a few weeks ago. Only I wanted to make a few changes…
I had a box of yellow cake mix so I subbed that for the dry ingredients and only made a 9×9 pan instead of a 9×13. They didn’t turn out quite like Andi’s but the results were still delicious! We’re headed to a BBQ at a friend’s house tomorrow night and I think they’ll be there perfect treat to bring along
It’s was super simple! Half of a box of cake mix, an egg, and eight tbsp of butter. Use a pastry cutter to blend the dry and the wet. Add half of the batter to a grease pan, add the blueberry mixture in the middle, and then more batter on top. Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Since I had finished my therapeutic baking I decided to get cracking on dinner for this evening. On the menu… baked salmon with butter and lime juice, spicy sweet potato chips and a big ole’ salad. I shallow pan fired the the sweet potato in coconut oil and then added my favorite blend of cajun seasoning and a bit of salt while they were still hot. Jamie was in love!
I’m really trying to get myself back into a more Paleo style diet and this is a great way to start
We’re going to to watch Jeopardy and hang for a bit. Then I’m off to continue the last book in The Hunger Games Series, MockingJay. I’m really impressed with these books. I can’t put them down! Thanks for the recommendation Julie!
