This past Wednesday was Independence Day. I did not do anything special or see a single firework this year. I did enjoy time with friends and family, relax outside, attend a few barbecues and eat fresh blueberries every day. We are sweltering here in Chicago and it is too hot to cook or prepare anything complicated to eat. Luckily, we can bask in the bliss of fresh berries. To me, there is almost nothing more delicious than a bowl of fresh blueberries with cream.
