Double Crust Marion Blackberry Crisp!
You is pretty!
(actually I abhor baking, mainly because I'm really, really TERRIBLE at it)
but this recipe looked easy enough.
And it was!
I didn't even have to use any colorful language whatsoever.
Well, it's a BLACKBERRY!
A blackberry that is a cross between a Chehalem blackberry and an Ollalie blackberry. It was bred and discovered, so to speak, in Oregon around 1945 by the USDA. Weird, huh!
Okay, so this recipe is from an awesome website called Reluctant Entertainer.
Her recipes are always so spot on, typically easy and always fresh and tasty.
it's local and I found it right on the shelf in my grocery store.
And the ingredients don't creep me out!
I'm trying to be better at using organic or healthier options of food items, where the ingredient list
Anhoo, these are the fixins for this fine Marion Blackberry Crisp/Bar.
Very few ingredients, and it's mainly things you already have in your pantry.
melt the three sticks of butter.
Yes, that is correct.
Then mix the dry ingredients together, easy! Oats, flour, sugar, salt and baking soda!
Add the melted butter!
DON'T STOP THERE!!!
Pour on those Marion Blackberry preserves!!
let's take a closer look at this
Fresh out of the oven....
these Marion berries are so delicious.
You will need some ice cream with this crisp/bars.
They may come out just a tad dry and the ice cream just sort of tied up all the flavors in a nice little sweet berry package.

where you can then print off this tasty recipe....
OHOHOH! I froze these...
they freeze very well by the way.
Okay, that's all the food goodness I have
We did have a rainbow the other evening,
after only a few drops of rain.
Notice the tree in the picture below....
The reason the tree looks so weird is because the metal roof to the business pole building sheered off the left half of that tree.
The roof went sailing through the air during a freak 2012 tornado/straight line wind event, and flew right between those trees.
Yup, imagine a huge metal roof swirling up in the air to it's final destination.
Which in our case, just happened to be Marvin Miller's bean field.
We had to wait until the beans where harvested to have the roof pulled out.
I leave you with this gorgeous picture of open shelving in someone's kitchen.
I salivate over this picture.
Believe it or not,
I used to HAVE enough sets of dishes
and serveware, I could have EASILY filled that cupboard up, plus more!!!
Oh how I loved me the dishes. Loved!
Rivals that cupboard from up above,
doing the absolute minimum of cleaning as humanely possible without triggering trichinosis or cholera or starting a new potato famine or something.
Makes ya wanna eat at my house, huh!! :):):)
That's all I have for today!!!
we'll talk at ya soon!
