|All done picking - they each picked over a pound of blueberries.|
We then headed to the store to see Daddy and see if he wanted us to pop out and pick up a late lunch for him. Since we were there..... we got him some lunch and a small mocha shake for him and Gail. The kids and I had a small frosty from Wendy's to cool us down after being outside picking.
They cleaned up the store - with the duster and the broom and each got fifty cents and a big noodle for the pool.
Veggies and sausage went into the oven to roast while some pasta was set to boil. Dinner got pulled together and then the kids wanted to make something with Blueberries. Aidan wanted 'that cake thing' Mom..... Blueberry Buckle Cake it is! The house smells wonderful with blueberry and cinnamon baking in the oven. Here is the recipe - we originally got it from the Betty Crocker cookbook - coffee cakes and the blueberry variation.
