Strawberry Day!


When my father was a little boy, his mother had the tradition of serving strawberry shortcake for dinner one night a year when the strawberries were ripe. My sister came up today and very sweetly took the little ones to the farm to pick their own strawberries this afternoon (something I thought that they'd miss out on this year). We decided that today was the perfect day to carry on Grandma Judy's Strawberry Shortcake Dinner tradition and the children practically licked their plates clean! Yum! Auntie Anna and I are already looking forward to seconds after everyone is tucked in for the evening!

My mouth is watering! I can't wait until strawberry season! Our plants are flowering; won't be long now. :-D

Oh, you are SO lucky to have ripe strawberries before the fast! They are not ripe until mid-June around here, and I think of years with long Apostles' Fasts as no-strawberry-shortcake-years. Of course, we could use nondairy whipped topping, but it's just not the same....

My mom had the same tradition, but my Dh isn't a fan.
Yum! Enjoy!
I agree with Diaconissa, ours aren't going to be ready for a couple more weeks.
