Yes, they do. Spring changes to summer, and strawberry season changes to blueberry season. While Friday night we were enjoying a delicious Strawberry Lemonade Smoothie, with what may prove to be the last batch of farmers’ market strawberries we see this year, Sunday afternoon saw us ushering in the blueberry.
With rides – those of the wagon variety
and those of the pony variety.
With beanbag throwing, and the making of new little friends.
With music. And shopping.
Well, we all know what happens when you go shopping at a blueberry festival, don’t we? Oh, yes, you come home with a tasty snack.
And the raw materials for a small batch of the purpliest jam a bread machine ever churned up.
Tonight there will be blueberry pancakes, and perhaps tomorrow, blueberry muffins? I have my eye on the blueberry raspberry pound cake from A Homemade Life, too (anyone know where to buy cake flour?). Plus, it’s been suggested that maybe our smoothie recipe might be tweaked to involve blueberries instead of strawberries, so that, too, is on the list.
I think I may need more blueberries.
