My Thoughts About Blueberry Crisp:

The days are getting cooler and I know you will agree with me, there is nothing quite as nice as some warm dessert with ice cream on top. This is a low-carb recipe and it won't hurt to add a dollop of topping of some kind. I may be a bad influence if you count carbohydrates, but ask yourself if you deserve it. I am willing to bet you do.

A recipe like this brings back memories for me. It is almost like what we call here in the Ozark's a "cobbler" and there is nothing that gets attention more at family reunions than a cobbler. My mother also would make cobbler. I would always enjoy smelling the dessert cooking in the oven. Sometimes I would get a taste of the filling before it baked. It was such a joy for me. So every time I see or taste this kind of dessert it is very nostalgic for me. The holidays are coming up and if you are looking for something to bring to family, this recipe may just be one that will get you a lot of "THANK YOU!" comments from the crowd.

Some Extra Information For You:

It was the Native Americans who Introduced blueberries to early settlers. The settlers loved it so much that it became a main dish and then moved on to the dessert table as a favorite. Blueberries are popular around the 4th of July because they are in peak season then. So like most people when hearing about blueberries you might associate blueberries with Independence Day. Did you know July is National Blueberry Month here in the United States? You can learn more about blueberries in America by visiting TasteAtlas.

A Question Or Two For You:

Have you ever been blueberry picking? I have and it is lots of fun. There is a local blueberry farm here in our area and every year it is open to the public. I took my daughters there and they loved picking blueberries. At the time it cost, from what I can remember, about four dollars a person. We were all given a small bucket and could pick until our bucket was full. We stored them in plastic bags and ate on them all through the winter. We would put them on our cereal and bake with them too.

Did you see my last recipe? This blueberry dessert would go well with it. My last recipe is called Tennessee Pride Hash Brown Casserole. If you missed it, take a look and let me know if you think these two recipes would pair up nicely.

My Personal Thoughts For Today:

Recently I purchased a portable dishwasher from a friend. It is in very good shape and I got a good deal. I have always hand-washed dishes in the home I currently live in. I have owned it since 2001 and never installed a dishwasher. I owned a home in Springfield, Missouri for about two years and I enjoyed the dishwasher there. 

General Electric Portable Dishwasher with Countertop.


This dishwasher is a General Electric brand and it fits nicely next to my cook stove. I can load it as I use dishes and when it's full I simply roll it to the sick just a few feet away and hook it up for use. The hose in the back of the dishwasher connects to the sink. My faucet is not the right size for the connector so I have to modify it or get a new faucet. That is not an issue to get a different faucet. I was going to sell this house when we lived in Springfield but decided not to after my two oldest daughters moved out of the house in Springfield. I moved back to this smaller home and sold the larger one.

The connector hose would not fit on my faucet because the dishwasher hose connector is too small. My friend who sold me the dishwasher said she would give me an adaptor that would work for it. I am looking forward to trying this and hopefully, it works well. If you know me at all you know I try to add humor to any situation, although I truly am a very serious person. I am serious about humor. I was looking at the faucet ring and it looks just like a big finger ring. I slid it on and what do you know, it worked well!

My kitchen faucet ring. Not a biker ring!

I promptly went to my daughter's room and she was busy writing. After a minute she noticed it on my finger and asked me if I was turning into a biker person. She is so funny! I said, "No honey, I am not turning into a biker person." and we both laughed out loud. I explained to her I put the kitchen faucet ring on my finger and it just looks like a biker ring, but without the skull. It is little funny moments like this I try to create that have lasting memories for me. I love to laugh and be happy! I hope I made you smile a little reading this. Thanks for reading!
