My next door neighbor invited me to a little ladies’ get-together at her house a few weeks ago. She coordinates these mom’s night out events, often hosting at her house.

That night, she asked if I was interested in joining the group. I told her that with my kids in school, I don’t really have an opportunity to join any of the playdates and such during the day. I mean, that’s what I remember from my moms’ group days – babies strapped to their mommies or being pushed in strollers while mom tries to keep track of the kids that are old enough to be on their own too feet, but still young enough that they don’t realize running off into the woods or attempting to jump off the playset is probably not a wise idea. It was much more about communal kid-wrangling than any real adult social interaction.

“Oh, this isn’t that type of moms’ group. Basically we just leave the kids home with our husbands so we can get out for a bit.”

Count. Me. In. That’s a mom’s group I can get behind.

And since it was basically an entrepreneur mom’s night out, with the other ladies sharing about their businesses selling beauty products, leading workout groups, and things like that, I thought I’d bring some treats that I was making this li’l ol’ blog I run here…

Wyman’s of Maine is synonymous with wild blueberries. What started as a small family company is now the brand that grows the finest wild blueberries on over 10,000 acres in Maine, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. In fact, I visited their fields and packaging plant in Prince Edwards Island last year and was fascinated and impressed with everything that goes into growing, harvesting, freezing, and packaging these berries to preserve all the freshness, nutrition, and antioxidant superpowers and bring them to all of us so that we can enjoy them in these parfaits, as well as stirred into yogurt, blended in blueberry smoothies, mixed into muffins, and so much more.

Wyman’s is also committed to the environment, and especially preserving the honeybee population, which is so essential for the continued growth in their fields, because No Bees, No Berries!

    I made this for a bridal shower. I used cups that were 3 inches tall. I ended up making 8 servings of cheesecake filling, and used 3 boxes of gluten free Graham cracker because I couldn’t find almond meal. I made 48 cups.
