Here's some weird flowers!
Black hollyhocks! Who'da thunk it?
And then we went blueberry picking!
My Uncle told us about a new and better location to find 'em, so we got lots more than I'm used to getting.
Some were frozen, some I made into this pie.
I've never done a lattice top before. It wasn't as hard as I'd been led to believe.
...It did get a little overdone though.
And if anyone can tell me how to make blueberry pie filling cohesive and not just soup I'd be glad to hear it!
Anyways, what else?
Ah! Here's a stereotypical red-with-white-spots mushroom!
I'd never seen one in real life before.
And here's what's doing in the garden this year! Our big success crop is, for the first time...
Corn! Last year it was ok, but now it's great! Finally we are getting ears longer than four inches!
And they GOOD.
Also in the works is my latest strange project; making many yellow cakes.
I am looking for the perfect yellow cake recipe, for reasons best known only to myself.
I have made three so far.
Obviously, you can't tell much about which recipe is best from this, but if you know a good one, do tell!
In closing, here's a picture of me from our trip to the North Shore, standing with Rocky, the mascot for everyone's favorite variety of iron formation: Taconite!
Ravishing, no? And I look ok too, I guess.
I will post more soon if it kills me!!
