Cherry & Blueberry Galette

This cherry and blueberry galette is easy peasey and delicious. Served with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream, it's a delight. I used frozen berries because it's winter and I find that out-of-season berries lack a little something. I'm a big proponent of frozen ones because they're picked at the height of their growing season.

I love a galette - which you probably know if you're a regular reader of this blog. They're so much easier than a pie. No offense to pies, but you have to be careful with the edges and rim - they look a little messy if they aren't perfect. And with galettes, the messier the better - I just call it rustic and move on. No crimping edges with forks for me, thank you very much :) 

I've been walking, with a bit of running thrown in (hello, couch to 5k, for the third time), for the past few weeks. Since it's now apparently spring in February?! I bought a new pair of shoes to try out because I read a bunch of rave reviews online. And, I am nothing if not swayed by the good people of the internets. The shoes are made from wool and are super cushiony. They're made by a new company called Allbirds. Today is my first day out in them, and I'm hoping they'll be great. Reviews to come!
