Oh yeah, nectarines & peaches were totally my pregnancy cravings! But I had them in the dead of winter. Took ages before I could finally indulge! It sure looks like a very, VERY tasty bowl of oatmeal.

Ah! The Presidents of the United States of America! I used to LOVE that song. :)

I’m all over the peaches this mornings too – peach cobbler chia pudding is my breakfast of choice. With Sarah’s Nutty Butter. :)

Ooh you’re right, it does look like pie! Or at least a dang good cobbler!

This has nothing to do with your post but I finally did the “magic shell” coconut butter on a smoothie. So fun!

Looks so good and refreshing. Great way to start a Friday :)

I had some extra tart blackberries recently. The problem I’ve been having with them lately is they are firm in the store, but quickly turn to mush. So disappointing! There are plenty of other fruits to enjoy this time of year though. I’ve been enjoying peaches and nectarines, but they should be really good pretty soon. Enjoy your Friday!

ahh, looks like a heavenly bowl of oats! I think the correct phrase would be “most tart”. sorry, i’m an english teacher :)

Hahah – I should have known. I like to add -ist to everything!

Tartest is a word! It is the superlative of the adjective tart, so “the tartest blackberries” does work.

Typically if the word is longer than one syllable you would use “more” and “most” like in more beautiful, most beautiful. If the word is one syllable then you can add the –est (or the er). Sweet is a good example. Sweet, sweeter, sweetest.

Best,

I’ve only had a couple white-flesh nectarines so far this summer. I gotta get myself some good yellow ones!

That looks gorgeous! As soon as I saw the post title in my reader, that song immediately came into my head. I just had a pint of blackberries that was supppppper tart as well. I mashed some and added them to balsamic vinegar, then reduced them on the stove and served them over chicken… (the recipe is here if you’re interested: http://eat-spin-run-repeat.com/recipes-2/?recipe_id=6026706). It was divine!! Have an awesome day Kath! :)

Nectarines and berries are such a delicious combination! My favourite combo is nectarines/peaches with raspberries…yummy!

I forgot about that song! (Peaches!) Thanks for the awesome flashback ;]

Oh shoot, now I’ll have that song in my head all morning! Good thing it’s a great song!

Blackberries! That’s what I am missing in my life right now! Your post reminded me that berry season is upon us–most exciting time of the year!

Reply

25 Karen June 22, 2012 at 9:42 am

I’ve been having the worst luck w/store bought blackberries this year…such a delicate fruit – when they are super fresh/local, they are simply amazing, but they rarely hold up to distance transportation/storage. I hearby vow to buy blackberries only at the farmer’s market! :)

I am so ready to do the Friday dance today! :) Have a beautiful one, Kath!

26 Lisa Langenfeld June 22, 2012 at 10:15 am

Looks like a delicious breakfast! We were out of food last night, so I made banana whipped oats with chia, sunwarrior, and coconut milk, with a side of egg whites. Not too bad for an empty fridge! Nectarines are my fav too :) Have a great day!

27 Roxanne June 22, 2012 at 10:18 am

I actually like tart fruits and sweet fruits, some people like one or the other… so I wonder if it’s possible to be sweet gal and a sour puss one at the same time? LOL

28 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning June 22, 2012 at 10:24 am

Haha- I played “Peaches” for one of my spin classes a few weeks ago and said “Some of you are going to be like ‘Oh hey! I remember this song!’ and the rest of you will be like ‘Uh.. What?!'”
And now it will be in my head all day long…

Are your blackberries from the farmer’s market? My boss and I were just commenting this week or last they our farmer’s market blackberries were SO TART. Like almost hard to eat!!!

32 Andrea June 22, 2012 at 11:09 am

This is such a silly question but do you sometimes use less liquid in your oats if you’re feeling like having them a lot thicker? I’m just curious because you sometimes have thick oats and sometimes more liquidy. I am a texture freak when it comes to my food.. love it! :) Have a great day!

Reply

33 KathEats June 22, 2012 at 11:10 am

These were made by Matt!! I’m impressed you noticed a difference. He definitely uses less liquid than I do

34 Andrea June 22, 2012 at 11:21 am

Haha oh yes I always note the texture of oats!
