Chutz and others, as I work my way through another sleepless night I opened up to read on HW and ran across this. The sweets are part of the reason I am enjoying the long night. I was out walking today and kept looking at the wild blackberries that abound here. My family enjoys it when I make them what they like. I spent time braving the thorns to pick many of those ripe little buggers. I came home and first cooked some up and then strained them and made syurp. I told the fam that I would waffles with home made blackberry syurp. Next I made a cobbler that I knew would go great with some vanilla ice cream on it for desert tonight. But the plans changed, my daughter saw I still had more berries and said that they would make a great milkshake. Sweets can be seasonal and I am not sure where this little journey is going to end but I guess while the vines are filled with ripe berries, I will keep expanding my imagination.
In the process, I was planning out dinner tomorrow night and am making a cabbage/green apple slaw. When I went to the store to get a couple granny smith apples, my mind hears my daughter saying, its that time of the year to make your famouse apple dumplings, so I now I also have to fit in the dumplings. The joys of sweets.
