Strawberries in Summer

If I had to pick one favorite thing about summer, it would be fresh strawberries.

Plan a Strawberry Picking Outing

Want to plan a fun outing with your daughters or sons? Take them to a strawberry farm to pick fresh berries. It’s so much fun. You pick. You pay. Then you take them home and come up with all kinds of recipes for the big basket of strawberries you came home with.

My daughter and I were invited by some friend to go strawberry picking when she was a young girl. We had a fun day eating those fresh-picked strawberries.  The strawberry farm also sold strawberry cookbooks, so we came home with a basket full of strawberries and a book full of recipes that I still have in my cookbook collection.

Of course, I like them all year round, but they’re best when freshly picked. I can’t resist eating sweet, juicy strawberries that are fresh.

One of my favorite things to do is make a pudding and layer it with sliced strawberries. I start out with a simple box of instant pudding mix. My favorites are vanilla, lemon, one box of each. The photo below was one I took for a previous blog post (I’m telling on myself…amazing how upgrading cameras and cell phones can improve since older posts 🙂 !!).

I make the pudding according to the box mix (with occasional variations) and then mix in the strawberries.

  2. I love the combination of strawberries and lemon pudding. The addition of cream cheese to the pudding really makes it taste like a lemon cheese cake. Yum!
