It’s berry time!

Blair and I headed out to our local strawberry farm to pick a few strawberries Saturday. I was so glad to find out it was opening day – I was looking for something to do that didn’t involve cleaning, studying, or driving. This involved driving a few blocks, which is okay! (Since we drive a half hour to do most anything, I am no longer a fan of driving.)

Blair toted her brownie with her too.

Blair had to make sure they were sweet!

We made our way home with two whole buckets of beautiful strawberries.

Our next mission was to use them to entertain ourselves in the kitchen.

We had to make Brad a strawberry cake. (I think that’s why he told me the strawberry patch was open!)

This was going to be a strawberry cheesecake, but my recipe flopped. Oh well, every recipe I concoct won’t be a winner! I’ll try again another time!
