Berries for Dad for Father’s Day

Summer Meal Ideas
Roasted Cauliflower is Delicious!

Father’s Day is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate than by utilizing the fresh fruit that are currently in season? Special breakfasts and desserts with dusky boysenberries, ruby red strawberries, or the powdery blue of blueberries–yum!

I have to admit, here in the Central Valley of California we’re spoiled. Fresh fruit and vegetables grow almost year-round. Currently, peaches, and nectarines, cherries, and loads of berries perch on the painted wooden shelves of local fruit stands waiting to be purchased. Stalls at our bi-weekly farmers’ market offer delicious produce as well and, during the summer months, there will be an explosion of even more fruits and vegetables being sold. Of course, as you well know, these fruits can be found in any grocery store too.

Berries for Dad for Father’s Day

This Sunday I’ll be making something using my husband’s favorite fruits–berries. Yum! I love them too. He loves anything that includes these fruits, so June is the perfect month for Father’s Day, in my opinion. At the moment, boysenberries, blueberries, and strawberries entice innocent shoppers with their intoxicating scent conjuring visions of delicious pies, cobblers, coffee cakes, crisps, and more. My husband would rather have a homemade mixed berry pie, or white chocolate-dipped strawberries, than a Hallmark card with a sentimental greeting inside. This hollers, “I Love You, Babe!” far more than printed card stock to him (cleaning out the storage shed is a close second, though).
