savouring a few more of those summer moments, the family went strawberry picking this week...

We: 


~ picked a bunch = 5 gallons; 


~ made 3 strawberry & rhubarb pies, delivering one to my sister whose kitchen is currently undergoing a major renovation; 


~ froze a ton for more strawberry & rhubarb pie because I did not think making 20 pies in one week and eating them all would be such a good idea for my waistline; 


~ will be making some strawberry jam as soon I get to the grocery store and replenish our sugar supply. 


~ and of course... ate a bunch, there is nothing like a fresh strawberry!

  1. oh, me me me, please!!! we ate everything we got from our patch...but i have not had enough yet. fresh jam with milk would be perfect for a breakfast! unfortunately it has been rainy few couple of weeks and temps are around 60-70s.

  2. You hit the nail on the head... fresh jam, milk and fresh bread - what could be sweeter. Our season has ended now, earlier than usual with the heat we've been having. so glad I got to pickin' before it was over.
