it's strawberry season...

back in elk grove, ca we had strawberry farms/stands 
within miles of each other,
we actually had one right around the corner of our house 
and we would bike there and buy a few baskets at a time.
i'm thankful that we moved into and area in north carolina
where there are also local fresh strawberries grown.
we overdose on strawberries when the season is here.
we use them for dipping in chocolate and yogurt dip,
we use them to make strawberry-banana-blueberry smoothies
for breakfast and for those warm afternoon days,
we make strawberry trifles,
we top our home made belgian waffles with them along with
whip cream and drizzled with chocolate syrup.

so go buy those strawberries and enjoy them while 
the season is here!
