The girls and I picked a gallon of these beautiful blueberries yesterday. It was a nice day for picking. It rained on us before we got to the blueberry place but stopped before we got there. The bushes were wet but the temperature was not bad and the bugs even left us alone.
Today we made this zucchini pineapple recipe. We used yellow squash instead of zucchini. It actually tastes like pineapple. You would never know it had squash in it. I got the recipe from here. http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/zucchinipineapple.htm A blogger friend of mine had made it the other day. She posted about it here. http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/2012/07/11/a-day-of-canning/ I think it will be really good.
Now, question time. I found out from the internet this squash is called a patty pan squash. Do any of you ladies have a recipe for it? Our pastor gave them to us and I really would like to try them. Online it says it pairs good with tomatoes but I thought I would ask you all.
Our weather change here has been amazing. We had rain yesterday which we so much needed. We laughed and said the plants in our garden were doing a happy dance for God. The temperatures have cooled off so much. We are right now at 73 degrees!!! Thank you Lord.
Well, that’s about all. I hope you have a great evening and God bless.
The blueberries are beautiful and your pineapple looks delicious! The squash is so cute, but I have not had them before. We have had such nice weather! I think we are going to check out Grayson Highland’s blueberries on Sunday.
Hi Donna.. Your blueberries look yummy.. We are still picking strawberries..
Our weather is wonderful here, too.. A blessed Summer for sure so far..
I blogged about your zuchinni pineapple last Fall but I used 2 cans of pineapple …
Or that is what the recipe I linked to had in her’s.. I used yellow squash, too..
I ended up freezing most of it as it is required to have a water bath.. It was good frozen, too….
Have a blessed week, my friend..
Your temps are amazing. Crystal has some great recipes over at The Family Homestead. I have been visiting her site for several years now. The pineapple zuchinni looks yummy. I just saw a recipe for blueberry coffee cake and was wishing I had some fresh blueberries. 🙂 I hope you guys have a great day.
Oh, I love it when it is blueberry time! I think I have one bag left in my freezer from last year! We have 5 small bushes and it looks like we will get just a bit here at home. That zucchini pineapple looks delicious! The sweet blessings of summertime! Enjoy your day!
Your canning is so pretty!
