Yummy Strawberry Season

July 11, 2012

Strawberries…. They’re colorful, full of fragrant and most of all delicious!  And best enjoyed when they’re in season, which lucky for us, is right now! All I can say is I am trying to enjoy as much as I can while they’re at their freshest!

The other day, Helen, the executive director, mentioned she had gone berry-picking over the weekend. She had picked some great ones and her description of the strawberries made my mouth water. So I have decided to share with you a few farms that offer u-pick. It’s a great activity over the weekend for the whole family!

Strawberries can also be used in many recipes. Have them with a bowl of cereal in the morning or slice them into your yogurt and granola or just have them on their own! So here’s a quick, easy, tasty and nutritious recipe.

Strawberry breakfast parfait:

  • Slice strawberries into bite size pieces.
  • Layer rolled oats,  yogurt and then strawberries, repeat layers if you like.
Hmmm…reading this makes me  want some! Bye for now, I’m heading to the kitchen.
