Half a Flat of Strawberries

Ah! I am going to turn into a Strawberry! There is a local farm that has strawberry stands all around Orange County. Luckily (?) there are two within a mile of me so I pass them all the time. I am always disappointed by store bought strawberries, but these are the most amazing red berries you’ll ever try. Trust me. beautiful strawberryToday I stopped and bought half a flat. That is A LOT of strawberries. I have already eaten a ton. I feel like a big ol’ strawberry farm is growing in my belly. It’s unpleasant. But they are sooooooo good.

    I make “chocolate ice cream” with my niece and nephew every time they are over. I love that there is only three ingredients and there’s no dairy!

    Fresh strawberries are the best! I feel like the ones in the store taste like plastic compared to ones from the farmer’s market

    I’ve been making that dessert combo a lot lately too! But, since it’s been cold, I microwave it for about 45 seconds and the stir it up until its smooth. Sometimes I add a little peanut butter for some extra flavor – delish, filling, warm night time treat :)
