Around here we have some strawberry fields where they have roadside fruit stands. We stopped the other day and got some strawberries so we’ve been eating them all weekend. They are so sweet and yummy! I’ve made strawberry shortcake but my favorite is just eating them plain.
These strawberries were at a very good price too which made them even sweeter. I made these Strawberry Lemonade Bars a few weeks ago and had to pay way over what I wanted for just a little package of strawberries at the grocery store. The bars were really good though. I took some to my daughters and rest disappeared quickly.
I’ve been asked about summer themes for women’s ministry and I think strawberries would be fun for this.
Here’s some ideas from around the web.
Find some Strawberry Party (from One Charming Party. Check out the fun garland)
Find more Strawberry Party Ideas. (Glorious Treats)
Serve Strawberry Punch (Six Sisters Stuff)—I used to have a recipe very similar to this and it was sooooooooo good!
Plain strawberries with whipped cream or some fruit dip (The Yummy Life) would be great as well.
