The first strawberries of the season are very exciting for me. I refuse to eat strawberries out of season since they pale in comparison to the real thing, so waiting all winter long adds to the thrill of taking that first juicy bite.
I haven't mastered growing my own strawberries, so I get my fix at the local farmers market. David and I checked it out for the first time this season on Saturday and got some awesome items. I even got to pet some baby goats! It was heaven. And when I saw the big, red, juicy strawberries I knew I had to have them. I ate several of them on the way home along with my chai spiced pretzel from the market and have managed to polish off the whole pint in just a few days. No apologies!
I've had this simple graham cracker strawberry bowl for breakfast the past couple days. All I do is slice the strawberries and sprinkle with a little brown sugar. I stir and let them rest for a minute to get the juices flowing. Then I crumble on a couple graham crackers and have at it. For a little more decadence this morning, I also drizzled on a local honey made from bees foraging at a walnut farm.
For me, this is the perfect way to celebrate the return of strawberry season. What is your favorite way to eat strawberries?
