It’s blueberry season, and yesterday I took Waylon to our favorite pick-your-own farm in Craftsbury, VT. I got a bucket for each of us, and Waylon crawled and walked (with help) between the bushes as I picked the berries out of his reach. It went like this: one berry for Waylon, one for mama, and a few for the bucket. We managed to pick 7 pounds before nap time set in, and with tired eyes Waylon held onto his bucket as I carried him back to the car.
So this morning: blueberry pancakes! It was Waylon’s first taste of pancakes–gluten free so papa could eat them, too–topped with butter and the last dribble of maple syrup (time to buy some more). He smiled and pointed at the plate, and from his blueberry-stained mouth it’s safe to say he liked them.
Seven pounds won’t last long around here, so we put them in the fridge for fresh eating. This afternoon will surely call for a smoothie, and tonight’s dessert menu is a blueberry crumble. We haven’t yet mastered the gluten-free pie crust, but it’s a necessary baking adventure that we’ll soon begin. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Until then, happy Saturday!
