How does a week fly by!
Last week my friend Dawn and I headed up to Chelan. Doug had an appt so I called her on a whim to meet us up there at Blueberry Hills. We picked berries and had a great time. I ended up with almost 6 lbs of blueberries and probably 2-3 lbs of raspberries. They were only $3/lb! Heck of a price. I understand why raspberries are so expensive. They're such a pain in the butt to pick! I googled a bunch of recipes and started out making one that looked SUPER yummy. And then I got into it and all the measurements were in weight instead of cups. So, out came the scale and I must have really screwed something up because they were terrible! Threw those out and made a blueberry/raspberry crisp that was divine. I've decided I'm going to make rasp ice cream with the remainder of those, but I haven't decided what to do with the blueberries. Heaven forbid we eat them raw!
I had to include this picture of Trent with a berry on his thumb. I thought it was so cute, and it reminded me of the little boy who "stuck in his thumb and pulled out a plumb."
After the berry picking we threw the kids into Lake Chelan! So fun! We found a perfect beach and there were hardly any people.
