I wish that I had not relied on others to take pictures in the past. I didn’t get my little camera until right before our trip to Japan last fall. One place in particular I wish now that I’d had a camera is the Richard Lenoir street market in Paris. If I had, you would’ve seen scenes like these:
Now that I have my trusty little camera, I can subject you to my less-than-stellar efforts. Nevertheless, here are shots from the local farmer’s market.
Can I just say that it’s really hot here right now? It’s been over 90 for the last week, and it’s predicted to be the same for the next week. Don’t let the outfits fool you–these folks charge a fortune for their fabulous heirloom tomatoes.
And here tomorrow’s dessert–blackberry cobbler.
If you have a quart of your own blackberries–try this:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Mix a quart of blackberries (or fresh sliced peaches) with 1/2 C sugar and set aside
Melt one stick butter in 2 quart baking dish
Combine the following:
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup milk
Pour this over the melted butter–do not stir
Spoon fruit on top and bake for 1 hour.
