Meats and Berries




I couldn't resist naming this post Meats and Berries. Actually the meat has nothing to do with it. But when we go to the farm for the weekend, we always pass this freeway farm sign promoting their goofy combo.




When we arrived at the farm there were no berries to be had. But it just so happens that the beautiful farm pictured here has pick your own berries on Saturday. Cain's orchard also has apples in the Fall. This area is where I grew up. Isn't it beautiful? But when I was a teenager I thought it was a hell hole. I'm older and wiser now.













This was $7.00 worth. What a deal.


















This is Riverbend Golf course in Northbend, Wisconsin. When we arrived a golfing tournament was just finishing up. And I discovered something. It's kind of nice to golf after a tournament. Because they had those extra large holes in place. Of course I still missed several putts! But what a beautiful course along the Black River. We saw hummingbirds, yellow finches, woodpeckers and countless varieties of butterflies.


























And a peacock.

















Meats? Sorry, I couldn't resist.


















And we even picked a few Blackberries on Sunday.




































































Here's a quick and easy Summer breakfast. Toast some good quality french bread. Spread with slightly sweetened cream cheese with almond extract. Add some fresh berries. My favorite is Black Raspberries. (little Blackberries shown here) Then top with toasted almonds. And if you want to call it Meats and Berries just add bacon!

I'm always pleased when I see a post that has a picture of your cute little toes in it. And some other fabulous scrumptious things, too! :-)

How beautiful all these photos are!
All those berrys make me think about what will soon be growing along the hills when we go for a walk.
The grove of wheeping willow trees is amazing!
