Strawberry fields forever

My friend and I took our little ones strawberry picking yesterday. The sun was beating down on us, I think it was the hottest day we have had yet. It was a bit of a drive and the kids were at there breaking point so we only picked until we  I couldn't take it any longer, being pregnant its hard work bending over. I think Anne noticed, she suggested several times that we just buy some :P  So in the end I got 6 pints of strawberries.I am happy :)

Now for the real mission...coming up with yummy things to make with them. The camera is still on the fritz, I am hoping to get it back in a couple of weeks. It had to be sent to the camera company. Since strawberries are in full swing here I thought I would share with you one of my favorite strawberry recipes.

I really am craving a frosty strawberry milkshake at the moment but we have no vanilla ice cream kick`n around. Maybe tomorrow.....


  1. I am patiently waiting for locally grown strawberries, now pretty please stop making me weak at the knees.

  2. Strawberry picking is one of the summer's greatest pleasures. Even in the heat! These cakes look wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
