I know I know the song is really "strawberry fields forever" but "blueberry bushes forever" made more sense for this post. This evening my husband and I went blueberry picking along with his parents. We had a great time and probably ate just as many blueberries as we picked.
For $1.50 a pound you can't go wrong with these beautifully delicious plump juicy berries. Mmmm berries.
I must now warn you, whatever you do please be careful when you come home from picking and place your lopsided 15 pound bag of blueberries onto the table. If you turn your head, if only for a second, you may hear thump, plop plop plop plop plop plop only to turn around and see your kitchen floor lined with berries. Lesson learned, eat more berries so the bag is not so full and lopsided. :) Thank goodness I was able to tip-toe through the blueberry maze and grab the bag before all 15 pounds hit the floor.
Stay tuned in the next few weeks for more blueberry recipes that you care to ever see. Ok maybe not that many but as many blueberry recipes as I have time to make before blueberry burnout sets in.
If you have any favorite blueberry recipes or ideas of things I can make feel free to share your ideas in a comment.
