Strawberries, anyone??

One of the fun things about where I live (which is about 50 minutes east of the city and has been described by some as a bit "rural") is that there are strawberry fields right outside of my neighborhood. Prior to living here, I had never picked my own berries (of any kind, actually). It is super fun to go and pick your own, and they are quite yummy! I went with Aimee and AJ on Friday. We each picked our own bucket, which pretty much means that there are mass quantities of strawberries to be consumed around here! Which is going to require lots of strawberry creations in the coming days!

buckets o' strawberries!

Strawberry creation #1: Strawberry cake (quite delicious!)

Strawberry cake: Cali aftermath (she licked the icing off of this side)

Cali's sweet "but-Mommy-it-was-so-yummy-I-couldn't-resist" face

More strawberry creations to come!

Yum-O! Wish we lived closer because I'd love a piece of that right now. Off the side that Cali DIDN'T lick, of course. ;)

Yummy! You should make some strawberry Jam! My mom makes them all the time and stores them in little jars in the freezer! Let me know if you want the recipe!
