Manic Monday: Red

One of the few things I like about summer is the fresh berries. I especially love blueberries and black raspberries, but since today's MM theme is "Red", I found a picture of black and red raspberries, co-mingling together in a big orgy of berry love.
They're so good. And it's discouraging when people try to freeze them to save them for later. You really can't do that with berries. I mean, you CAN, but most of the flavor and texture gets ruined that way. People try fixing the problem by adding a bunch of sugar to the berries when they thaw out, but it's just not the same. Fresh is best.

As much as I love juicy berries, I must remember not to wear white when I indulge. (I tend to dribble) That picture would look so nice in my kitchen!

OOH! I was first!!

But what about the watermelon?

Metalmom: Keep lots of bleach handy!

Mr. Fab: Watermelon is good too! AND it's red! Mart! :)

I thought of you yesterday when I mowed the path down to the creek & back -- the blackberry bushes are in FULL bloom right now. We should have a bumper crop of berries this year.
I think, if I remember correctly, they're ripe around the 4th of July.

But, Lee is making a special dessert for YOU this weekend! ;)
From frozen berries, but I'll bet it'll be delish nonetheless!

Frozen berries are just nasty. Unless you are making a smoothie.

Travis said...

Oh I do enjoy a good wet juicy raspberry.

LOL! Mart!

Janna said...

Morgen: Yum!!

Lynda: Smoothies are good!

Travis: LOL! Not that kind of raspberry! :) Mart!

I remember picking blueberries when I was a wee lass and enjoying them with a bit of cream.


I want blueberries, now.

Danielle: Fresh picked blueberries are SO yummy!!!
