Starting the Day Off Right

I took a new route, driving home from my walk yesterday.  (Walk will be up tomorrow, I'm having trouble identifying one flower and want to work on it a bit longer.)  I passed a stand by the side of the road that said "Fresh Raspberries."  You never saw anyone slam on the brakes faster than I did.  It was a good thing that there was nobody behind me.  Yes, I checked first before hitting the brakes.

Raspberries in late August?  Unheard of.  But, true.  I guess there's a kind out now that rebears.  Anyway, they were beautiful, and I bought a pint.  They came home with me, were washed and sprinkled with sugar.  Then they went into the refrigerator over night.

This morning I got them out, ohhhhhh, yum they looked good.  Put some of them in a dish, and added a good dollop of Devon cream that I had found in Wegman's a couple of weeks ago.  The result was beautiful.

And, they tasted every bit as good as they look.  I haven't had Devon cream since I was in England in the mid '80's.  I fell in love with it there, and have craved it ever since.  Thank goodness for Wegman's, though it's so rich I won't be getting it often.

Oooh! I'd like to eat those too! Yummy yum! My lady says that you should be able to plant raspberry bushes at your house...with a little training fence to hold them up...and then you could pick your own! mmmmmm! Her Opa (Grandpa) grew berries in the same soil as you have.
