Berry nice

Look what I found at the supermarket this morning…

They aren’t the juiciest, most flavoursome specimens, but they’re the first of the season I’ve seen (and the Small Girl and I polished off a punnet for morning tea). There’s a bottle of rose in the fridge and the sofa is bathed in sun… what a pity I’ve got work to do this afternoon.

Have you had any new season strawberries yet, southern hemisphere friends? What have you done with them?

    I had my mother and her visiting brother from Australia to dinner last night. For dessert I made a simple strawberry parfait by quartering the strawberries and mixing them with sugar and leaving them to sit so they became syruppy. Then I layered them with a mix of yohurt and sour cream mixed together. The yoghurt/sour cream layer completely balanced out the sweetness of the strawberries.

    I have been a Strawberry Glutton. As well as trying a few new recipes (blog has details) I have eaten them with hokey pokey ice cream every single night this week. Glutton, I tells ya.

    So strange to see strawberries while I'm slowly preparing for winter 🙂 I made muffins with strawberries, just chopped them in little chunks and mixed them in with the batter. (Also nice to put some white chocolate in them as well.)

    Ooohhh this northern hemisphere girl is very jealous! I have a bunch of summer berries frozen so I can't wait to grab recipe ideas off of you (or just live vicariously through you until it's my turn up here!)
