Woohoo!  It's finally berry season.  We went to the Hillsboro Tuesday farmer's market this week, and scored some really nice berries.  Red and yellow raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and some blackberry-like things (ollalieberries, maybe).  All were fantastic.  I love berry season.  I'm a big fan of fruit and cereal for breakfast, and I've been existing on pretty much apples, pears and bananas all winter.  Not only is it exciting to get some new variety, but the berries don't require cutting up before they go on the cereal, which saves me a bunch of time.  Soon it will be stone fruit season (I got some early plums, but they were less than amazing) and then it will be plums, peaches, nectarines, etc.  I'm particularly fond of those little donut peaches on cereal.  They have a very subtle flavor that comes through well at room temp, and they tend to go really well with the vanilla soymilk. :-)

My kids are pretty gaga for the berries too.  Always nice to get something non-starch based down them.  They've been begging to back to the market (next one on Saturday) to get some more.  OK by me!
