One Berry, Two Berry…

August 14, 2013

Pick me a blueberry!


Jamberry just so happens to be one of Lila’s favorite books.  I mean, how could you not love a book that includes elephants skating on raspberry jam?  Sidenote: I’m pretty sure the author was indulging in more than just berries on those “magical” trips to the forest.  I mean, come on–  “Moonberry, starberry, cloudberry sky!  Boomberry, zoomberry, rockets shoot by!” 

Sure pal.  Whatever you say.

Anyway.  Considering how much Lila loves that berry-eating bastard of a bear and his little boy friend, it seems only fitting that we spent one of our last days of summer picking blueberries:


Ah, nothing says fun like a little manual labor in Alabama in August, am I right?

Hashtag: things white people do for fun

But seriously—it actually was fun.  Smile  Lila ate the berries basically as quickly as we picked them, but somehow we ended up coming away with a nice bag full of fresh berries, which I used as part of my lunch:


Cottage cheese and berries, + honey.  Is it just me, or does cottage cheese get a bad rap?  I know people think of it as like, a 1970’s diet food, but I gotta say—it’s pretty effin’ delicious.

Dinner was equally simple and delicious:


Veggie burger.  Sweet potato fries.  I had a grandiose plan to *make* the veggie burgers, but alas, the afternoon got away from me.  Hence the Sunshine Burger peeking out from that cheese. Eh, still delicious!

We have a busy day tomorrow—not one, but TWO playdates.  I think we’re trying to cram all of summer into this last week before school starts.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  Winking smile

    Oh how lovely to see that sweet girl pick those beautiful berries. And I agree with you, cottage cheese has got a bad reputation. I love the good stuff…not the non-fat variety. And your dinner looked perfect. Those sweet potato fries are calling my name!
