Happy 3rd of July! For all my U.S. readers..are you ready for the holiday? I am for sure. This week has been crazy busy. It all started last Friday with a visit to my sister and hasn't stopped since. It also has been filled with tons of activities for the kids. The weather has been great the last few days, so, that means..parks, farmers market, bike rides and lots of walks. It really has been quite lovely.
We have been to two farmers markets in the last week. A huge 4 block long market in Madison, WI and then, our local market here in town. Both..overflowing with berries. Mostly strawberries, but, raspberries were also everywhere you looked. We stocked up on both and besides a new batch of jam, I decided to make raspberry bars. These bars are perfectly delicious. A creamy, cheesy, fruity top and a nice, brown sugar crust. Topped off with powder sugar and a few more raspberries and it's a perfect summertime dessert.
