Simple Summer Food and Raspberries

It is so hot here right now that cooking is out of the question. This morning I cooked up some quinoa so that I could make a quinoa salad. It was really simple... basically olive oil and lemon juice... so it was also really refreshing.

Good news too... we picked enough raspberries today to make a pie. A raspberry pie takes 4 cups and as you can see we got 'em !

    Oh Megan, I wish you could too! You are of course welcome any time... we probably live fairly close.... although I live out on the east - in the suburbs...guess it depends on if you have car!

    You picked raspberries today? It was the hottest day so far! You are certainly brave. Seeing your berries though, leads me to believe that it was probably worth it.
