Fruits of our Labor


{Albeke Farms}

I spent yesterday morning picking berries in the hot sunshine, with my best and also pregnant friend, Em.

She locked her keys in her house.
I left my picking bowls/cash at my house.
We forgot the difference between blackberries and marionberries.
I left Em's bowl at the farm.

It's hard work, this being pregnant stuff.

I'm thinking pies, muffins, and smoothies for these bad boys.

Any secret family recipes you want to share?

I like secrets. and families. and recipes.
annnnd sharing.

so. yeah. do tell!

You crack me up. I don't have any secret recipes but a mixed berry pie would be perfect!! I have a crust recipe on my website if you need one (under the Eats & Drinks tab - it's included in the Cherry Pie recipe). Take lots of photos of whatever you make!! :)

FUNNNN!!!!! Those look like raspberries!

Lindsay said...

I make a fruit tip with 1/2 cup greek yogurt, 1/2 cup sour cream, and 2 Tbspn honey (or to your liking)! It's super easy and great for a quick sweet treat.

HA. That's too funny. The Mister and I are headed to Southen Illinois this weekend to do some berry picking so I can make jam. :)

kira said...

Yum! I have been eating so many berries lately. My sister-in-law made freezer jam with the raspberries she picked. It's my plan to go to her place this weekend and procure some jam for myself :)

Kelsey Cole said...

mmmm that sounds like heaven:) I helped my cousins in washington harvest their blackberry fields once, it was SO much fun! I hope to have lots of berry bushes in my garden someday:)

SaffaKate said...

Oh how fun is that pregnant brain?
Those berries look YUM to the MO!
I would defiantly make a blackberry & apple crumble.

I love to go berry picking!! Make some homeade jam. I don't have a recipe to share but yum is that stuff ever good :)

Belly B said...

I want to go berry picking too!!! Strawberry picking is one of the most popular things to do here and I haven't even done that yet even after living here for 5 years. Inexcusable!

If you can find some double cream, just eat it poured over raspberries. YUM!

When my Sister was pregnant she wrote one of my bridal shower invitiations for a week earlier than the party. Poor guest showed up a week early.

Alexis Kaye said...

in case you haven't heard the fad, freeze a banana and berries and throw into a food processor for a fruity sorbet

leigh said...

Those look so delicious! One year, my husband & I made raspberry jam. We just followed a simple box recipe. It was absolutely phenominal.
Anything with berries is exceptional, though.
Love, Leigh

Lauren said...

You should for sure make pies! :) They look so good! :)

Tanvi said...

We had raspberries and blackberries in our backyard in Wa and those are some of my favorite memories- I love picking berries! Hope you still had fun despite pregnancy brain:-)

McKinley {Haolepinos} said...

YUMMY!!! I want to go up in the mountains in search for Huckleberries... those things are as rare and valuable as diamonds... well to me at least. THEY ARE SPECTACULAR!!! You are brave to do this pregnant, I would never do such a thing in the heat! It looks so rewarding though!!!

And please share your recipes when making something divine with these berries!

Shalini said...

The berries look good! So true about being all forgetful when preggers.

April said...

The berries look delish!! Pregnancy is just a roller coaster of fun...isn't it! I blame the hormones for slight brain loss and crazy dream (had you have any yet?)

another feather said...

Nothing like berry picking. So many pies and ice creams and smoothies to make!

Rachael said...

Oh man, this sounds like things I'd do (leaving keys, forgetting money). No preggers excuse on my end though….
