Sweat. We were covered in it. Living with no air conditioning in the midst of this heat wave has been miserable. Matt and I went to bed last night at 11:45 p.m. last night, 91° F. We woke up this morning around 5:30 a.m. and it was 84° F... Sweat. Sweat. Sweat. So tonight Matt and I spent the evening at Barnes and Noble enjoying the air conditioning and looking through all the books. It was a nice respite from the sweltering heat and we found some new additions for our own bookshelf. Love the cover of this Lewis Carrol classic!
My all-time favorite dessert is pie. Any kind will do. Well... no chess pie... or French silk. Gag. I do however love the creaminess of a yummy Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, the tartness of key lime and lemon meringue pies on a summer afternoon and nothing beats a nice slice of apple pie on a pleasant autumn day (ice cream on the side please). But making pie is something I don't have the patience for today. So my equally delicious alternative: cobbler! With our basket of freshly picked blackberries, Matt and I set out to make the most delicious cobbler ever. Well I don't know if it was the best blackberry cobbler of all-time, but it was certainly delicious, especially after sitting overnight - the juices from the berries and sugar soaked up into the dough.
