Guess what I’ve been doing!!!

***Insert off-color Smurf joke here***

(She’s making Smurf jokes on a Wednesday?  You can’t even make out that picture!)

(What if a Smurf was reading this?)

(He’d be laughing on the outside, but on the inside, he’d be crying)

Ahem.

I’ve been picking blackberries!!  FRESH, thorn laden, blackberries!!

Travis watched the kids while I went picking last night.  My loot only turned out to be about a cup and half.  But I’ve got some good ideas for what I want to do with them.  First being this amazing Blackberry Crumble Pie that I had over at Mom and Dad’s on Monday.

Getting my hands on that recipe will require super-sleuthing skills though.  Anytime you ask my Dad for one, he says, “Old family recipe”.  Translation:  “I’m not sharing.”  Urban legend tells of the time when my Grandma shared her boiled custard recipe with some of her grandchildren.  Later on, I looked at my sister’s recipe and it had COMPLETELY different instructions….so as to throw us off the track, I’m guessing.  Those Mashburns are greedy with their gooses.

Anyway, I know where he wrote it down, so if I can get over there, I’m going to make that pie and share it will you all (again, all 3 of you, hi mom!).

Last night, I also found some other FRESH items in our garden!

1 green bell and about 7 jalapenos!

All organically grown by this lovely model.

I swear, Travis made me pose like that.  Then he got FRESH.

(did she seriously just make a sex joke?)

(how un-Christian of her)

(I’ll bet she’s not even a real blogger!)

(I’m leaving)

For you, Travis.  In true Jim Gaffigan form.
