blueberry picking...and a little baking!

A few days ago Mama, Lauren, the kiddos, Mrs. Gerry, her friend visiting from France and I went to Frierson, LA to pick blueberries at Shuqualak Farms. It was a hot day so we waited until right before sunset to drive out there, but after finding bushes in the shade our buckets were quickly filled to the brim with blue gold.
Hudson got the hang of it very quickly :)
When you're done with your bucket, they measure your pickings and give you a free blueberry popsicle. It is to-die-for! It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Next is deciding what all to make with all of your berries. I decided to make blueberry muffins for my book club on Thursday. I found the recipe found here.
Delicious! Anyone have any recipes for blueberries they would like to share?

This is one of my absolute favorite blueberry muffin recipes. I think you should try it out. It's very delicious and you and your partner's (I think she's your partner)children will love them.

P.S. You guys make a dashing couple.

Those muffins look absolutely amazing! I have never made blueberry muffins but my husband loves cranberries. I tried my hand at cranberry muffins once and it was a total disaster! It looked like the Kool-Aid man had exploded all over a dough factory! Ha! Love the post. Keep up the great work.
