Very Berry Good

Our raspberries and blackberries are ready for picking, the blueberries still have awhile to go.  Here is a great summer recipe for these colorful fruit!


Quick Any-Fruit Cobbler  (from my friend Rusty)

 1 stick butter or margarine

1 c. self-rising flour (or 1 c. flour + 1 t. baking powder + 1/4 t. salt)

1 c. sugar

1 c. milk

2 c. fruit

 Heat oven to 350°. Melt butter in glass 8" x 10" or 9" x 9" pan, or a 2-quart casserole. Mix flour, sugar and milk until lumps are gone. Pour batter into butter. Place fruit on top. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Makes 9 servings.

 (Rusty's likes using:  1 c. blueberries + 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped, and tossed the fruit with a little lemon juice before putting it in the batter).

Lancaster County

We recently visited Lancaster County, PA for a memorial service for my friend Nance’s father.  It took place in a historic church dating back to 1754 in the heart of Amish country.  What beautiful country roads.

Views of Ireland

localsSuch a wonderful time in Ireland, in Doolin, the Aran Islands and Galway - walking the countryside, knitting, climbing stone walls...picture perfect views everywhere you turned.  The thing that really was the nicest of all was how kind and friendly everyone we met were.  On the Aran Islands they knew we were the  Americans coming over to learn their culture and knitting traditions; so each day we were greeted by different locals stopping by to say hi and to making sure we were enjoying our stay.  We did stand out working on our knitting in the pubs at night enjoying the Celtic music, Irish Fare and Guinness.

I took zillions of photos, so I may share more later!
