"What will you do with them?!"

A dear friend commented, "What will you do with them?!" upon hearing about my successful blueberry picking adventure.

My answer is: freeze them!

But each time those words come out of my mouth I am met with groans and gasps. My family LOVES fresh blueberries and each person has probably eaten their weight in the small blue orbs. Mr. Wiedz grabs a handful anytime he's near the kitchen.

I pulled chairs to the sink and let #3 and #4 help me clean and bag some of the berries. They thought it was great fun.

We did have blueberry pancakes for dinner last night, though not a great success. And I hear Mindy has some great blueberry recipes.

As for now, I have 4 gallon ziploc-bags full of frozen berries in the freezer! Bring on January!
