Red, White, and Blueberry (BBB)


I’m having a blueberry celebration here as following my recent blueberry blues (over my lack of blueberries, involving chickens and an erroneous store ad) I was gifted with a few pints of blueberries–enough to make the Blueberry-Lime Jam I was hankering after as well as filling for one pie. Yay! See? Whining is productive!

Hopefully, you have blueberries and all the other berries you need and are having a happy, not whiny, Fourth, but if you don’t have a BBB, feel free to whine–and enter to win one!

    I like jelly, jam, etc. Not such a big fan of blueberries. But then dd is VERY allergic to them – gives her a migraine for several days. She will actually get a migraine if someone has eaten blueberries then even breaths on her. (like a girl at school did).
