Sweet Strawberries!

SWEET SATURDAY

Another sweet image of summer… sweet strawberries!

Can you say yum?

The best part about strawberries in the summer is the price, which makes them hard to resist. And why resist them anyway? They can be used in so many ways:

  • with angel food or pound cake plus whipped cream
  • in protein shakes (my fave)
  • as a cereal topping
  • stirred into Jello desserts
  • as a decorative cake topping and in between cake layers
  • and even by themselves

And who doesn’t love sweet strawberry pie?

I prefer to eat them after they are freshly washed and at the peak of their sweetness, without any sugar added. I have also been known to include sweet sliced strawberries in a salad and toss with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing… another yum!

So, how about sharing other special ways or recipes where you use fresh sweet strawberries?

About Anna Popescu

I live in northern Arizona with my husband, Rick. I am blessed to say that Rick and I are at the bottom corners of a triangle where Jesus sits at the top corner. My children, Kathy & Alan, live in the Phoenix area and make this mom's heart thankful they have grown to be such wonderful and caring adults. Alan married in 2010, so I am also blessed with Denise as a special daughter-in-love. The Lord took my Mom home in 2007, and I miss her. My Dad and two sisters live in Florida while my two other sisters live in the Northeast. God has also blessed me and Rick with a local family of very close-knit friends. I love to write when I am able, but on the days when I am struggling with health issues and can't manage much of anything, I can at least crochet. These days I mainly crochet lapghans of various colors and sizes for area rehab centers and nursing homes.

  1. From my friend Tammy: “We can’t forget about chocolate covered strawberries.” Oh yeah, how could I have forgotten that? Yum!!!

  2. I’ll say “yum” to all of the above!

  3. Strawberry pancakes with chocolate sauce – yum!
    But I usually just eat them on them own, and enjoy the full, uninterrupted flavour.
