No, not "Prawns and Lemon-Blueberry Quick Bread", as in prawns and blueberries in the lemon quick bread.
First a freshwater prawn update and then the bread.
The larger shrimp in the photo above is the pregnant female prawn. The yellow mass beneath her abdomen is her clutch of eggs which she will protect and oxygenate by gentle fanning of her swimmerets until they hatch.
I've asked her to cut me a little slack on the due date.
I am still setting up her nursery, but time is getting short.
She will not wait on me.
Above is the largest of the prawns on the day I moved him from the school RAS to my home RAS.
He is pretty magnificent ... and not full grown.
They have learned to creep up the tank towards me when I peer in at them as it usually means that they are about to be fed.
At this point, I have moved all the prawns home for summer grow out and attempted breeding.
Here is the lemon-blueberry quick bread.
Yesterday morning, there was a collander of "ripe,but picked 2 days ago" blueberries on the counter when I stumbled out to make my coffee.
I remembered an ancient box of lemon-poppyseed muffin mix that had sat in the pantry for a year, so I snatched it out and threw in a few handfuls of my blueberries.
It was delicious and is just about gone now.
Which is what I need to be ... gone ... blogging is about to make me late for something yet again.
Got a doctor appointment ... two actually.
When you teach, you schedule all this stuff during the summer.
Speaking of doctors... one of our own blogger pals, and a favorite hippy of mine, Roger of the Dharma Bums, is undergoing cancer surgery today.
I'll be thinking of him and his lovely wife, Robin, today and hoping for the very best.
