A moment of rest after the rush of the holiday weekend.
Well-earned after blueberry-picking, tidying, and entertaining.
Of course there were also a trio of homemade condiments, blueberry pie, honey ice cream, jam, and a well-loved potato dish that made their way out of the kitchen over the last 3 days. Not to mention yet another of Deborah Madison's: Blueberry Lavender Compote.
A spoonful or two of the compote's syrup stirred into a glass of sparkling water compliments an afternoon pause perfectly.
