happy breakfast at wimbledon 4th of july!

Too bad there's not an American in the Gentlemen's Singles final at Wimbledon on this fourth of July. (Marathon man John Isner? Roddick? Hello?) At least Serena kicked butt yesterday. Yeah!

I made something that I think can work for you whether you are sitting on your couch with a cup of coffee this morning or going to a bbq later this evening. My mixed berry crumble might seem like dessert but it's not all that different from eating a bowl of granola with fruit. Am I right? Just top it with yogurt (or ice cream!) and wait for the fireworks.

Mixed Berry Crumble

(Adapted from Family Circle)

6 cups berries (any combination of blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Zest from one lemon
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup whole rolled oats
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold, unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. In a large bowl, gently mix the berries, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup flour, and zest. Pour the berry mixture into a 2-quart baking dish.

2. In another large bowl, stir the remaining flour, brown sugar, and oats together. Cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.

3. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the berry mixture. Bake for 45 minutes, until the topping is golden and the mixture is bubbling. Allow to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving. Serves 6.

Roddick always chokes.
I love anything with crumble! Yum. By the way, I tried to take a photo of my cereal with blueberries and raspberries the other day because it was so patriotic. Um... where were your expert photo skills when I need them? :-) Happy 4th luv.
