I keep getting distracted though ... watching the bees and chipmunks and the rose breasted grossbeak dropping seeds for the chippy to pick up as fast as they hit the deck.
Okay... back to the kitchen ~
I tried out a recipe I saw online somewhere and had tucked into my "try" file. It's a Three Berry Cobbler (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries)
It's only 3 ingredients:
a 12 oz. can of clear soda, a white cake mix, and a bag of frozen mixed berries
I just happened to have the frozen berries in the freezer from my own picking so I used those :)
Grease a cake pan ... dump in the frozen berries, sprinkle the dry cake mix over the berries ~
Pour the can of soda over the cake mix. Do NOT stir. This makes the top crust of the cobbler.
It gets all bubbly and frothy ... ooohhhh... this is fun! This would be a good and easy recipe for cooking with kids :)
Pop it in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes or until the berries are bubbly and the crust is golden browned.
I can't wait to sink my teeth into this. It smells sinfully good! Dessert for tonight after the meal of sauerkraut/pork/potatoes in the crockpot.
Also in the kitchen today ... besides the five loaves of bread rising and waiting to get into the oven ...
PICKLES!! PICKLES!! PICKLES!!

This is just a small batch of those already done.
Now I need to get off this computer and go pick my beans ... again ... and find a recipe for zuchinni bread.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
