On Friday afternoon, Kev came home early and we joined some good friends on a strawberry picking adventure. We took White's Ferry across to Maryland (this time in the car) and drove to Homestead Farm, where the pickin' was good. We ended up with more strawberries than I thought we could ever use, but three days later they're almost gone. We've had strawberry milkshakes, strawberry shortcake:
and strawberries on our cereal and on salads. I froze some to use later for smoothies. I made strawberry freezer jam:
I also made strawberry ice cream, which we had last night:
the recipe we used. There was one on the plank package that looked good too...maybe we'll try that one next time. A quote from Daphne: "I LOVE THIS SALMON!" So, that's something.
Today it was really hot. Upper 90's. I successfully managed not to step foot out of the house. We have spent the day doing various projects around the house, preparing for next weekend. We'll have Daphne's preschool graduation, her last soccer game, and her birthday, and Kev's parents are coming for a visit. It should be a lot of fun. I am off to check on Kev. He is busy repairing the squirrel wall. Happy Memorial Day. I hope you had some strawberries.
