Berry Pickin'

There's a local berry farm about 1/2 mile down the road from our neighborhood.  Last Friday morning James and I went picking blackberries!   He had fun finding the black ones and throwing them into the bucket.  I had fun using a new Paula Dean recipe last night for Porkchops with a white wine and blackberry sauce!  So yummy!  It's definitely going to be a new "go-to" summer recipe, so easy and delicious.
