Strawberry Pickin'

Since my Mondays are sluggish, as usual, my post today, is short and sweet and red and juicy. We went to a nearby farm and picked strawberries. We are a little late in the season though and there weren't many left. The ones that were left were really small. These (below) are ones we picked today. They are small but they taste just fine.

Some things I like to make with strawberries are yogurt smoothies, strawberry pie, chocolate dipped strawberries, and of course strawberry shortcake. Here are some links for all kinds of delicious strawberry recipes.
Fresh, in season fruit is one of the best things about summer. Enjoy some for dessert tonight.

I can't take credit for this beautiful fruit bowl. I found it in the creative commons section of Flickr. This picture ( and I believe the fruit bowl) belongs to Lori.


  1. that fruit basket is adorable I love the butterfly. Super cute idea. Thanks so much for comment on my blog I am following your blog

  2. That looks SO good.I am now very hungry. It's almost too pretty to eat though.

  3. I love strawberries. How fun you got to pick your own, sounds like it was a lot of fun.
