Those of you who have read previous blog posts will know that I have a little bit of a thing for jam; and when I say “a little thing” I mean, I will pretty much eat it on anything and I have no issue eating it straight from the jar. Like, “hi my name is Kristie and I am a jam addict…”
Seriously though. I love jam. I love alllll the jam. Every flavour; sweet or savoury – hit me up with a spoonful of that fruity goodness.
So a couple weeks ago, when the incredible Natalie from East Van Jam offered to send me a couple jars of her Raspberry and Blueberry Jam to try – it was literally like all of my jam dreams were coming true.

This past weekend was a good one. I mean probably not in the way you are imagining. Like, I didn’t spend the weekend at Disneyland or go bungee jumping or take a kite-surfing lesson. Nothing extra cool like that; but I did manage to be uncharacteristically productive in the accomplishing tedious (but very necessary) tasks department.
For instance; I organized my pantry –something I have been meaning to do for weeks… (okay more like months); I vacuumed; Cleaned my office (so necessary); Retrieved a package from the post office; Purchased groceries for the week (like a proper adult); Forgot a couple of items at the grocery store, which I then returned to said grocery store to purchase; Went to the bank (am I the only person still doing this?); Did multiple loads of laundry (it got real); and I remembered to water the plants at my parents place while they are out of town.
#productive… kind of.
How do you guys like your oatmeal muffins? Hot? Cold? Plain? Buttered?
Hands down, my favourite way to eat an oatmeal or bran muffin is warmed up, with a smear of creamy butter and a dollop of raspberry jam. I mean seriously, does it get any better than that?
