It's all about playdates these days.
And of course blueberries.
I had that annoying clump of pastry dough left after you make a full pie and trim the edges off.
I rolled it out and used a drinking glass to cut out some round tops.
If you don't have one of these handy sets, just use 250 ml canning jars on a cookie sheet.
I had 2 cups of blueberries, added 2 tablespoons of flour and just under 1/2 cup of sugar.
Mash half the berries and stir well. Divide between cups - I only got five cups.
Place the tops on and with a knife, cut a small slit.
I brush the tops of my pastry with cream and sprinkle on some sugar.
My daughter had a friend over, so I thought I'd personalize the pies.
Pick a bouquet of sweet peas while they cook... more blueberries...
Bake at 425 for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.
Maybe I get a little competitive with the whole snack thing.
But they loved it.

My friend Janis Nicolay took all these photos.
And my other dear friend Kim Christie took this photo.
It's online at House & Home right now with a short but very sweet interview.

There just seems to be so much going on everywhere I look.
Super cute story in Canadian Living that I produced this issue.
The garden seems to be ahead this year.
Everything is bursting.
I think my girls must be very happy - it's rare that all 3 lay on the same day!

Sure, the dandelion is an invasive weed.
But come on...it`s also pretty dreamy.
One wish per blow.
This is a field of dreams.
The blueberries are covered in flowers.
I could spend hours taking photos of them.
And I do.
