Summer Blueberry Crockpot Iced Tea

Summer Blueberry Crockpot Iced Tea | Faith, Hope, Love, and Luck Survive Despite a Whiskered Accomplice

September 22nd is the beginning of fall; that’s three days from now. I don’t know about y’all, but I know that I’m a little shocked. I mean, I know I’ve been all about decorating our house for Halloween and planning our annual costume party, but autumn still just feels so far away somehow. I guess what I’m trying to say, is that we all better enjoy these last few days of warmth and sunshine while we can, because if fall managed to sneak up on us so quick without us realizing it, then it’s quite possible that winter will do the same thing. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not anywhere near ready to don a winter coat yet.

So I’d like to hear what you didn’t do this summer that you would have liked to do, and if you think you still have time to do it? I personally would have loved to go to the beach one more time, gone camping or should I say glamping, laid out in the sun a few days lazily reading a book, played hooky from work and gone to DC for the day, and hosted one super-mega ice cream social. I also would have enjoyed arranging a picnic day in the park with all of my local friends, going to a few more outdoor concerts, sitting around the fire pit more often, and hopping on a plane for the weekend to go see friends that I haven’t seen in way too long.

Is there still time to do all of those things? Probably not for me, but it’s at least a reminder that time goes by way too fast and that I need to embrace every little ol’ second of it. So, what will y’all do in these last three days of summer to make them count? Will you just sludge to work every day, hit the gym, watch television, and then fall into bed to do it all over again the next day? Or will you brew up a batch of blueberry-laced iced tea, kick back on the deck, fire up the grill, and enjoy every last warm breeze of summer?

Suggestions:

  • The blueberries will have lost most of their flavor in the hot water, so I don’t recommend eating them.
  • Feel free to the garnish the tea with a few of the blueberries if so desired.
  • Make sure to serve with plenty of ice. Try freezing a few blueberries in each ice cube to serve.

Improvements:

  • Garnish with mint before serving.
  • Replace the blueberries with blackberries, raspberries, or strawberries.

      Funny! I went to a wedding this summer where the bride gave everyone at the wedding a 10 minute time-out to go play. It was odd, but there were a lot of happy people!
