Skillet Berry Cobbler

Skillet Berry Cobbler

Sometimes I have a hard time jumping on with the full-on Christmas bandwagon. Us coastal Californians don’t get much (read: zero) snow and this “winter” so far has been especially mild (again, read: 70 degrees). I don’t think I can even remember a typical white Christmas, except for one that I spent in Norway when we visited our extended family. Normally, we go fly over to the motherland in the summer, so this trip especially stands out in the few memories I have of my super early childhood. I have to rack my brain reeeaaaaall hard to bring anything up, but I specifically remember a few memories of being driven over to a hill to sled on with my cousins in their dad’s tractor and trying in vain to finish a snowman, but repeatedly having the carrot nose eaten off by one of my four boy cousins. Did I mention that they’re all around 6”2 to 6”6 tall, blue eyed, and pale as can be? A pretty far cry from the  5 foot 3 mass that is MOI.
