“All we have of freedom, all we use or know —This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.”~Rudyard Kipling

We had a great 4th of July weekend!

Although we had out of town company, we really had no major plans but when you throw in fun sunglasses, fake USA themed tattoos, cold beer and a slip n slide – it’s a perfect weekend!

We had the usual cook out fare – grilled burgers, chips, baked beans and cucumber/tomato/onion salad but we had to finish it off with something sweet and since I had fresh Chilton County peaches and a quart of blueberries in hand, I decided to go with a classic cobbler. 

Peach and Bluberry Cobbler

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 ½ cup sugar (divided)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix together butter, flour and 1 cup sugar. In another bowl toss fruit with 1/2 cup remaining sugar and lemon juice. Layer the fruit mixture in a 2 quart glass baking dish and pour the flour/milk mixture on top. 

Bake for 45-60 minutes or until brown and bubbly. 

Serve with vanilla icecream.
