Works for Me Wednesday -- Berries!

I L-O-V-E berries. Their sweet-tart flavor, the deep richness of their colors, pumped with antioxidants (I think they've even been called "super fruits"), they are arguably the most perfect fruit. With no pits or bothersome peels, they are effortless. Just rinse them off and pop a handful into your mouth. The boys are major fans too.

I buy them all year round but I love summertime when berries are abundant and you can easily find them in the supermarkets on sale.

This week our neighbor Bob brought over a basket of his Boysenberries. Straight off the vine, they were still warm from the sun, plump, juicy, and extra tart. After the boys and I were done noshing, we made a cobbler with the leftovers. When I'm done with this post I will finish off that cobbler with some vanilla ice cream and that's why this works for me.

My breakfast on the days I work: berries, greek yogurt, granola

Mmmmmm, berries! Trace starts getting the shakes when he finishes off one carton and insists that we go to the store to get more! The cobbler sounds great! Those boys with their berry-fingers are just too cute!

Little cuties! Love summer fruits. So do my kids. Cobbler looked delish.
