Y’all, last weekend I went blackberry and raspberry picking and it was the most fun thing ever. (How Arkansas of a statement was that??)
I went with E and M, and M’s adorable little girl (see cutest ever pictures below). We spent about two hours picking berries, eating a few off the vine, taking pictures and enjoying a beautiful Saturday morning together at McGarrah Farms. We went early so it wouldn’t be so hot and humid like it’s been lately, and it was PERFECT. It felt like Fall outside and we loved it!

After our picking (3 quarts! So many blackberries!) we were all so excited to decide what we were going to make with our fruits. Of course I went straight to Pinterest, and there were so many delicious ideas! I was seriously drooling just looking at them. One thing I didn’t make, but looked amazing was this Prosciutto, Blackberry & Basil Pizza – YUM.
Here are some pics and corresponding recipes of what the three of us made:

Are you drooling yet? Want some blackberries? Come on over, because I STILL have some left and at this point, feel like I might turn into a blackberry myself!!
