Thankful Thursday and Little Things Thursday

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 30, 2020
I am thankful for fresh blueberries! We went to my husband's cousin's house Saturday to help her pick her blueberries. They are delicious on cereal, and...

... I made a blueberry tart. One pie crust, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, dash of nutmeg, 3 cups of blueberries. Mix dry ingredients together, stir in blueberries. Pour into pie crust, fold edges up around fruit mixture. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar on crust (optional). Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Enjoy!

I packed the rest of the blueberries in my freezer, three cups to a bag, for future blueberry tarts!

Have a blessed day!

Thankful Thursday and Little Things Thursday

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, June 22, 2020
I am thankful for home-grown cucumbers!
I picked the first cucumber of the season on Monday: eight ounces of crispy crunch for our salads!

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA June 25, 2020


And this morning's cucumber weighted slightly more: nine ounces. Later in the Summer, the vines should be producing faster, and I will have enough to make pickles.

Have a blessed day!
