I tried to make tacos but I forgot the corn tortillas in my kitchen at home! We are back at home and unpacking and it’s time to write down my Intentions for the Week!  Here we go!

Lemon Blueberry Cake

Lemon Blueberry Cake

While cleaning out the fridge on Sunday, I found Greek yogurt in the back of the fridge that expired on my birthday (TODAY- August 18th!) and with the help of the blueberries that were screaming USE ME in my produce drawer, this Lemon Blueberry Cake was born.

Happy birthday to us, cake! 

Lemon Blueberry Cake

Why wait for a celebration to make/eat cake when you can let an expiration date inspire you? 

I mean, I had to put that yogurt to good use, didn’t I? 

Lemon Blueberry Cake

If you’re interested in enhancing your week, make this Lemon Blueberry Cake to pick at (or share!) all week long. It’s like a cross between lemon pound cake and a blueberry muffin. It only took me 4 slices to figure that out 😉
