Berry Berry

July 29, 2011

Every so often my roommates and I get together to have a roommate night.  No boyfriends, no outside friends, just the four of us together.  Each of us makes a course for dinner and brings a bottle of wine (ummmm yaaaaa it’s a lot of wine…don’t judge!!), and we spend the evening cooking, talking, and (obviously) drinking.  After Jess moved out in June, vacations, work events, and just plain busy schedules took center stage and our roommate nights sort of went by the wayside.  This past weekend Jess came back to visit us (yayyyy!!!!) and OF COURSE we had to have an evening just like old times.  As usual, I was elected to make dessert.  I wanted to make something with berries, and after some careful consideration (and polling of the apartment) I made a cobbler of sorts from berries and the nectarines that have been tempting me from the farmer’s market

Serve with vanilla ice cream and enjoy!!
