Berry Fun

We went blueberry picking over the weekend. Not only was it a fun family day out but we came home with some extremely delicious berries! It was a whole family outing, Matt came with us even though he doesn’t like blueberries! It was so much fun… we went with 2 other families, and all our kids are friends. Dorothy loved running through the bushes hunting for blue berries and not pink ones. She did fall once and spill out her berries, which we then filled up again – really fast!

She also ate more blueberries then she picked. So did I. I think everyone just about filled up on berries, except for Matt and Eleanor.

Ellie didn’t want to remain in the carrier. All she wanted to do was keep an eye on her sister and her sister’s friends, as they where having so much fun. Matt and I took turns holding Ellie and the container for berries while one of us picked.We had a great time, it was a perfect outing. We ended the morning with lunch and ice cream from The Ice Cream Man. We LOVE the ice cream from there, I’ll brave a night of a stomach ache etc for their ice cream. (which they now sell at Coffee Planet in B’Spa!! It was so nice to sit outside on the black metal table and chairs and enjoy a ice cream cone and only have to spend 5 minuets in the car to get there and then home.)

Now I have a very large bag of frozen blueberries to sit next to my strawberries. I can’t wait to have them as another reminder of this past summer one cold snowy morning in December.

I was thinking of baking blueberry tofu pie, that my mom used to make and I remember loving (its been a long time since she made it) but Dorothy eat a large majority of the berries already, and I want to make smoothies with her with whats left over. We really only have enough left to make smoothies or just eat them… which ever comes first.
