Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

My favorite thing about summer is fresh fruit. It is addicting. When I worked at the experiment station south of Fresno, California for a summer I had some of the best peaches of my life. They used to put out a bin of fruit, send an e-mail and we’d flock to get the choicest peaches, nectarines and plums. It was heaven.

In the Pacific Northwest, the peaches aren’t quite as good as right off the tree as we got in Fresno, but they are still mighty tasty. However, the blueberries are extraordinary! This week my husband’s uncle and aunt from Southern California were visiting and joined us for dinner. The dinner itself was nothing note-worthy, but dessert…Yum!
