A REFRESHING WAY TO COOL OFF



It's warm here today. We have been having such nice cool weather but the heat is on it's way. I fear it's only get hotter and hotter each day now.



I wanted something to help cool me off. Something that would be good to the taste buds, not to fattening, and yet refreshing.

So, I made some pudding and used my fresh picked blackberries to add a bit of kick to it.



I have to admit, there is nothing sweeter and juicier then home grown blackberries. Plus, they are so good for you.

I put my afternoon snack in my pretty pink depression glass champagne glass that I got for a quarter at the rummage sale. Placed it on top of a 100 year old plate just to make it look pretty. Got out the lace napkins and I was set.

Sitting down to enjoy this was so nice. It was like a mini vacation.

But, now that I'm finished with it... I'm hot again.

Hi Joanne

I love blackberries! This looks so cool and delicious!

Your Pageant of the Masters post is amazing...I would have loved to see that!

It has been very hot and HUMID here lately. Very oppressive. I hope it cools down soon.
