Not Blue, Yet!

So, did you know the blueberries are ripe? I can hear you now..."Well, Meggy girl, that's all you've talked about for two weeks!" Oh, yeah. That's right. I guess I have written about them a bit. But I still have more to tell you!

My sweet dd actually "picked" blueberries on Saturday when we went to the Blueberry Patch with our friends, the Bellas. I meant to take pictures...but forgot my camera. (Maybe Mama Bella took a picture of her sweet dd with blueberry juice all over her cute outfit!)

Here are a few pictures of the fruits of our little labor:



This is what it looks like before they're washed. Look how BIG some of these are!

Several have asked for my luscious Blueberry Cobbler recipe. Last night I made some more....YUMMMY! I thought about taking pictures and doing it up really cool like PW. However, I was making two at one time and trying to hurry to get them in the oven at the same time as my wonderful home-made Mac and Cheese (I'm such a greeny--saving all that energy, ya' know!) I didn't have time to stop and take pictures. Plus, when I stop to take pictures, I have to make sure not to have all those dirty dishes in the picture...real life should NEVER intrude on such artistry!

Anyway, back to the Cobbler recipe. I found it on the internet. It doesn't quite fit my 5 Ingredient or less test...but it's pretty easy to make. Remember, if "I" can make it -- ANYBODY can!

Here is the recipe for Blueberry Cobbler in steps.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put 1 stick of butter in a 8 x 8 (or 9 x 9, who knows?) baking pan and melt the butter in the oven while it is heating up.

Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine 1 c. flour; 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder; 1/2 tsp. salt; 1/4 c. sugar; 3/4 c. milk.

After butter is melted, take it out of the oven. Pour flour mixture evenly over the butter in the pan. Don't stir it.

In the same--now empty bowl, combine 2 c. blueberries; 1/2 c. sugar; 1/2 water. Spoon this mixture evenly over the flour mixture. Do not stir.

Bake 40-45 minutes until it's bubbly and the top is golden brown. Serve by itself or with ice cream.

The recipe says it makes 4-6 servings. This stuff is so rich you won't be able to eat 1/6 of it...so I think it will serve a lot more.

Here are the actual ingredients in a different format. Don't miss out on making this yummy dish!

1 stick of butter/margarine
1 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. milk
-------------------
2 c. blueberries
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. water

Here's a picture of the finished product.

I've eaten so many blueberries in the past few weeks...you'd think I'd start turning blue! Not yet!But I'll keep you posted. Wish I could send you a package or two...but Wonder Woman wants some...so I'll be heading over there later today. But first thing, about 7:30 am, I'm headed back out for some more blueberries. We just can't seem to get enough of them!

Stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by...and leaving a comment ;)
The blueberries look fantastic! I would love to talk to you about planting some here in the NW corner of the Sunshine State. I desperately want to plant a small garden, but I'm unsure of how to do that here. If you wouldn't mind giving a little advice, email me at proverbs4mom [at] aol [dot] com.
I am so excited to "meet" another homeschooler in the area!!
