No sewing for me today but I had a great day anyway!
DH has been pestering me for a pie... a blueberry pie. Don't these berries look yummy? Here's the recipe:
1 unbaked pastry shell
4 c. blueberries (2 pts.)
2/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. heavy whipping cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Rinse and sort blueberries. After the berries have drained and are somewhat dry, pour them into the pastry shell. In small bowl combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in the milk and whipping cream, whisking until smooth. Pour over the berries and bake for 45 minutes.
The birding commenced at 7 a.m. this morning when we drove to a local 52-acre city-owned wetland. It is home to many species of birds and is a stop on a migratory route for many more. The most exciting bird I saw this morning was a Northern Harrier, a medium-sized hawk. It sure didn't look medium-sized to me! I failed to get a picture of it but saw it through my binoculars and also the scope of a National Audubon Society guide there to help with bird identification.
Finally, here is my tribute to
Louis Comfort Tiffany's
"A View of Oyster Bay"
that I did a couple of years ago..
but I had to add a couple of cranes.
