Today was a fun day. But it really started 2 days ago when Shari from cottage 9 and two of her boys and I went to pick blueberries in Honor off of Dead Stream Road. We had a great time and picked quite a few quarts of the most beautiful berries. They were so ripe and full, they almost jumped into our jugs.
After we came home, I baked a blueberry pie for Shari and her family 😉
Today I wanted to show Tammy, Nate and Helena, from cottage 4, a blueberry patch a lot closer to the Wayfarer than going into Honor. I went over to cottage 9 and asked Shari’s boys if they wanted to come along and they did. Yay.
I was sure that I knew how to get there via my shortcut. Ummmmmmm, I missed a turn and we drove around “sightseeing” for a while until my brain engaged and I figured out how to find the berries patch.
After we came home, I baked a blueberry pie for my family 😉
that’s the pie I baked for us
This is a great summer with some fantastic guests and more fantastic guests to come. Looking forward to quite a few old Wayfarer friends to come still
Marc has been bugging me to make a blueberry pie. The opportunity to get blueberries came last Saturday, when we stopped at Miller’s Northwoods Market on M-22, after a trip to have his ears pierced by his aunt in Manistee. So now I had the blueberries but someone ate them before I could use them…
Finally I went to pick blueberries yesterday and I took with me Bachelor Joe. WE drove down Grace Road and turned on Paul Rose Road to find the U-Pick blueberry patch.

hmmm…There is no fooling me, these are not blueberries 😉
By the time the rain started to drizzle, Joe and I had picked 8 pounds exactly.
And then I made that pie for Marc. He definitely has a sweet tooth.

It came out of the oven at 11 PM. My camera was in the car and I wasn’t going to go and get it. This picture is of the pie after Marc had a big piece of it this morning, and yes, I had some too. How else could I say it’s the tastiest ever? 🙂
I used the Martha Stewart Pate Brisée recipe, as usual, but I substituted 1/2 cup of the flour for 1/2 cup of yellow cornmeal. OMGosh it is sooooo tasty.
