Ste-Catherine Street Sidewalk Sale and Microwave Blueberry Jam

Today, instead of going on a long hike in the woods... we decided to "hike" downtown - this weekend was Ste-Catherine Street famous sidewalk sale.  More than 2kms of shopping outside!! We walked for about 3 hours and managed to spend a bit... I bought 3 tops for a little less than $30!! Now that's a bargain!! ;)

Came back home to have lunch and relax and then I made some fresh blueberry jam.  I had made this recipe last Summer and it was soooo easy I had to make it again!! :)

Puree blueberries in blender or food processor.
Place in a 12-cup microwave-safe dish with sugar and cinnamon. Stir.
Microwave on High, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes -- until mixture comes to a full roiling boil and boils for one full minute.
Stir well once during cooking.
