Guess what I’ve been doing!!!
***Insert off-color Smurf joke here***
(She’s making Smurf jokes on a Wednesday? You can’t even make out that picture!)
(What if a Smurf was reading this?)
(He’d be laughing on the outside, but on the inside, he’d be crying)
I’ve been picking blackberries!! FRESH, thorn laden, blackberries!!
Travis watched the kids while I went picking last night. My loot only turned out to be about a cup and half. But I’ve got some good ideas for what I want to do with them. First being this amazing Blackberry Crumble Pie that I had over at Mom and Dad’s on Monday.
Getting my hands on that recipe will require super-sleuthing skills though. Anytime you ask my Dad for one, he says, “Old family recipe”. Translation: “I’m not sharing.” Urban legend tells of the time when my Grandma shared her boiled custard recipe with some of her grandchildren. Later on, I looked at my sister’s recipe and it had COMPLETELY different instructions….so as to throw us off the track, I’m guessing. Those Mashburns are greedy with their gooses.
Anyway, I know where he wrote it down, so if I can get over there, I’m going to make that pie and share it will you all (again, all 3 of you, hi mom!).
Last night, I also found some other FRESH items in our garden!
1 green bell and about 7 jalapenos!
All organically grown by this lovely model.
I swear, Travis made me pose like that. Then he got FRESH.
(did she seriously just make a sex joke?)
(how un-Christian of her)
(I’ll bet she’s not even a real blogger!)
For you, Travis. In true Jim Gaffigan form.
