Hey, Beck

One week until you come to my house. Here's what we're gonna make every day that you're here... Then we'll eat it all by ourselves and then we'll make more. Just for us. Because we'll be the little, red, cackling, hens that did all the work themselves and the whiney little punks don't get any. Neither do the children. We'll gladly share with any sisters who come play with us. I guess that would just be JennyPenny, because the other one isn't sticking around to show you her baby. It's probably better that way, though, because I do still want you to love your own children and seeing baby EmmyLouise might make you rethink that. She's that cute. And she doesn't squeal like a stuck pig or a terradactyl whenever you touch her or look at her or breath the same air in the same car or in the same house or on the same 5 acres as her. Baby Plankton misses you. We look forward to leaving you in charge of all 10 children and running far away for a nice relaxing break. I hope you're up for that after all of the blackberry binging and no purging.

Found on Gina Lee's Recipes (My Hips Don't Lie)

Pioneer Woman's Blackberry Cobbler
Melt 1/2 cup butter and set aside.
In a mixing bowl combine:
1 cup sugar
1 cup self-rising flour
1 cup milk

Mix all ingredients together with a whisk. Add melted butter and whisk together and set aside.
Butter a baking dish. Take two generous cups of blackberries. (Frozen works fine)
Give ‘em a good rinse and lightly pat them dry. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkling the 2 cups of blackberries over the top of the batter. Try to distribute them evenly…Until they’re all in there. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar evenly over the top. Pop the dish into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.

When does Beck get here. I might have to take a day off and leave Ash at the day care. :) AND come up Friday with her too.
