Berry Bling

Hubby arrived home early from work the other day and the weather was too gorgeous to sit around at home. We went raspberry picking.

The berries were abundant and just falling into our pails.

The fields of berry bushes were humming with bees feeding on pollen and nectar.

It took about 1/2 hour to pick these berries.
Last night I made a chocolate, raspberry tart for dessert and added berries to my oatmeal this morning. I froze several bags of berries for winter use by freezing berries on a cookie sheet and then transferring the individually frozen berries to a freezer bag.
Now what will I do with the other two boxes of berries?


  1. Wow, that's quite a load of berries for a 1/2 hour! Sounds like you are putting them to good use too. I appreciate the tip for freezing them too.

    What will you do with the last two boxes? :)

  2. raspberries are my favorite. i usually pay between $4-$5/pint at the market in madison. hopefully,i will find a park and pick today. i'll check it out when i get to the market this morning. thanks for saving me some money!
    ps: i can't put down The Likeness, your book recommendation. i read Into the Woods a couple years ago. you're right, this is fabulous.
