Doing Our Part – Blueberry Vinaigrette

This Saturday I participated in a park cleanup project for National Public Lands Day.  The Access Fund and Mid Atlantic Climbers helped organize a series of necessary work at Carderock Park in Maryland.  The group was comprised mostly of climbers which made it a great event to meet some new fellow adventurers for hitting the rocks.  Together we re-mulched all the trails, restored the shoreline walls, and covered misleading false trails.  It was great, but exhausting work.  Though I would like to say that Boca burgers suck and are a crime against vegetarians everywhere!

Frozen blueberries were on sale this week so I couldn’t resist (they go great in smoothies, by the way).  The weather’s been really great so far so for me light dinners are still in and I decided to try something different for a vinaigrette using these newly acquired berries.  I have to admit, the result didn’t blow me away but it was a nice change.  If you’ve got any suggestions or ideas, throw em my way.
