Temptation Thursday!

Hello and Welcome - here is a poem to get us started!


Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,

Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum

In the cavernous pail of the first one to come!

And all ripe together, not some of them green

And some of them ripe! You ought to have seen!

-Robert Frost

I was having a hard time thinking of what I wanted to tempt you with today - I mean there are so many recipes to choose from. No fear, I finally decided on something!

I am going to share two recipes today. Both are easy to make and use readily available ingredients! Enjoy!
