Strawberries Anyone

This weekend I finally had time to take the kids to the farm around the corner to pick some strawberries. As usual, we went a little overboard and ended up with 15 pounds of strawberries.

Here are the kids at the farm:

I have been scouring the Internet for recipes to use them in before they all go bad. I have found recipes for strawberry soup, strawberry salsa, strawberry smoothies, strawberry cake, strawberry ice cream, and the list goes on. I figure that I can freeze a good bit for ice cream and smoothies later on this summer. For now, we'll enjoy eating fresh, ripe berries on everything. Waffles, pancakes, pudding, shortcake. Maybe it's time for a snack.
