Blue is good
I can always tell when blueberries are peaking around the county, our good neighbor heads out early morn to go apickin'. Lucky for us, she always brings us back a nice batch from the patch.
Since my sister and bro-in-law are visiting, I whipped these up this morning to greet them with morning coffee. Hope you give them a try. Enjoy!
