For the better part of my life I thought I was allergic to strawberries. I was told I would get hives if I ate them. You know, those large lumps that can come up and itch like crazy when you eat something you are allergic to.
So...I didn't eat them. I remember I would sit so close to a bowl of them...or linger over them in the market...taking in their lovely aroma.
..and then one day I broke down and wolfed down a strawberry!
Nothing. Hours went by, nothing. So..I ate another..and another..
and I have been gorging on them as often as I can ever since.
Patient Husband came home yesterday with this huge box of strawberries..
...and in nothing flat I had them washed..WOULD YOU LOOK AT THE SIZE??
Huge berries..and so tasty!
Not easy taking a picture with one hand..at least not for me, so....
s'cuse the blur. Kinda hard on the eyes, I know!
(not excuse for the blur here!)
and all ready to eat.
We had big bowls of them last night after dinner and this morning I had them on my cream of wheat!
And I still have enough left for a pie..so I am going to just hop right over to see Joyce @
October Farm and look through her wonderful file of recipes on her sidebar!
Lots of wonderful cooks on blogs..but when I want a killer recipe I run to Joyce!
These strawberries were so sweet! I have to do the pie soon or there won't be any left!
Have a strawberry filled day!
Ok, ok..so they were VERY blurry!! :( If you think these are bad, you should see the ones I deleted.
Stupid camera! I know, you're right..it's never my fault! :)
