Coming soon....

(This is about 5 lbs.)
11 lbs. of Blueberries. Yes, that's how I spent my 4th of July.
I decided to go home to Cincinnati for one reason alone, blueberry picking with my mom at Rousters. They're only open for u-pick for 4 hours one day a year, and that was July 5th from 8-12. I had no idea how cut throat u-pick was. I thought my mom was crazy, telling me we'd need to leave the house by 7am, getting there at 7:30 to get in line. Really, mom, a line?! Well... it was maddness. The morning was gorgeous, the bushes were full and the berries were giant, sweet, and plentiful. I ate 3 berries while picking, and picked around 11 pounds. Mom picked 10 or so, but ate 3 I'm sure, so we ended up with 18.12 lbs. together.
I can't wait to make some delicious blueberry treats this week, including pie, dressing, and many other greats. Any ideas??? Leave me some comments :)

I'll be checking back for your bluebery dishes so I can get some ideas. We just picked 35 pounds the other night - so much fun, isn't it? We're in Cinci, too! I have an easy and tasty blueberry sauce in my blog that is good for waffles or ice cream.

The pint of blueberries you gave me were the BEST EVER! We ate them by the time you got back to Indiana, I'm sure. Thank you!
