We're here for a good time

When I look at this basket bubbling over with a mixture of red raspberries, yellow raspberries (such a treat, they're slightly sweeter than their red cousins), and luscious blackberries, the words from (and title of) a great 1970s song by the Canadian band Trooper spring to mind: "We're here for a good time, not a long time."

 

That tune has always been one that I strongly associate with summer, and while the first line of the chorus wasn't likely penned about berries (but instead life itself), there's something about it that seems so true of berries, too. They're not meant to hang around forever, but instead to impart as much fun as they can into your meals during the short time they're living in your kitchen :-)
