Strawberry Saturday

Scott is smart about things like growing seasons, so he proposed yesterday that we make a quick trip down the road for some “pick-your-own” strawberries.  It turns out that picking your own food is really fun, especially if you just finished a long day at a very indoor type of job.  Also, other people are better at growing things than I am.

So far, we’ve only gotten to a basic yogurt/granola/strawberries breakfast use of the berries.  But we have plans.  Check out all of the delicious ideas from Southern Living.  My personal favorites are the sandwiches with strawberry extras.  At least one of those will be tried in the next week.  And on that note, enjoy a Saturday right smack dab in the middle of strawberry season!
