The Little Sister, who finishes college early on Fridays, was around yesterday so we took Little Missy for a walk that turned into an impromptu blackberry picking expedition.
Not being very organised, we had to use LM’s hat for a basket, gathering (and eating) the berries while we strolled down the road. Blackberry season seems to be going on for ages this year, with a sunny September ensuring that there are plenty of fruit for eating and for cooking with rather than the usual one-or-the-other situation.
Our hatful of spoils, gently simmered with a little water and mashed with a banana, turned into an easy lunch for Little Missy. She devoured it (with a little help from the Little Sister!), lumps and all, making appreciative humming noises all the way through. Would that feeding babies will always come so easily.
