It seems like life is so rushed
that most of my weekends are spent
playing catch-up on everything that
I didn’t get to Monday-Friday.
(piles of unfolded laundry, sink full of dishes)
But last week I really tried to
stay ahead on housework &
I actually got to do some things that
I wanted to over the weekend.
Saturday morning, I headed to the
Local Farmers Market.
My husband and brother-in-law were there bright & early
but I straggled in a little later…….
because the baby needed to sleep in ;-D
It was the first time that we
had been there selling produce because
we usually sell out throughout the week.
It was so much fun to meet new people
& draw inspiration from local growers & artisans.
I love how soulful our little town is!
We packed up around noon &
I took advantage of the deep, car-ride induced sleep
that the baby was in & swung by my parents’ farm
to pick some fresh blackberries.
He snoozed in the car while
I picked just enough for a yummy cobbler
before I got too hot to enjoy
being outside anymore.
On a side note:
Yes my baby was sleeping in the car.
But don’t worry,
I had it cold enough to hang meat in there &
was peeking in every 2 minutes
to make sure he was still breathing
(which I still do every time he takes a nap!)
When I got home
I made a blackberry, peach cobbler
& attempted something I had never even heard of before….
It actually turned out great!
Sunday morning I got up and made a
that I had pinned on Pinterest years ago &
never gotten around to making.
It was a total hit!
So good that my husband was calling
family members to come try it!
I added fresh blueberries that I bought
at the Farmers Market
& drizzled it with syrup that I had
leftover from yesterday’s cobbler.
But the Betty Crocker-y doesn’t stop there!
I also made a tomato pie for the Sunday dinner
that we have with my husband’s family every week.
I don’t know what got in to me, but I probably
won’t feel like cooking for the rest of the week!
The rest of the evening was spent
lounging by the in-law’s pool
& spending time with family.
It was my idea of a perfect weekend.
It was a great weekend and the jelly was awesome……loved the tomato pie also! The other stuff looked scrumptious!
I second that wonderful weekend. The cucumber jelly was delicious with the cream cheese and cracker…think you should share your recipe with your Blog Family!
Oh I plan to 🙂
