4th of July Shortcake!

Standard

I hope that you are having a wonderful Independence Day with your family and loved ones.

For dessert, I made a red, white, and blue shortcake. I saw a recipe for Strawberry Shortcake Skillet Cobbler on the awesome blog onehundreddollarsamonth.com. Her easy recipe inspired my dessert.  I hope you visit her blog; she has so many gardening tips, recipes, and tutorials on her site.

Blueberries are in season here in North Florida, so I decided to make her recipe with blueberries instead and to drizzle some warm strawberry jam on top of the vanilla ice cream.  Red, white, and blue!

Yummy! I am following her suggestion, and I am scheduling the leftovers for breakfast. With ice cream. 🙂

I hope you remember those who are serving and have served our country today, and those whose loved ones are serving abroad on this our Independence Day.

May we make those brave men who signed the Declaration of Independence proud of what our country has done with its freedom.

Happy 4th of July! Enjoy some fireworks!
