Dayle brought home some fresh picked Hood strawberries the other day and some shortcake cups and a loaf of pound cake. After dinner we worked together, he plucked the stems out of the berries and I sliced them.. just like my mom used to.. and then I sprinkled some sugar over the top.. not too much.. just the right amount. Then I gently stirred them and put them in the fridge for a few hours to let the sugar dissolve. Then I sliced up the pound cake, asked who wanted the cake cups or cake.. ladled on generous amounts of bright red berries and added some whipped cream, and the boys wanted some ice cream too.. lol. Oh my goodness. It tasted so good. I told him the only difference is that my mom made homemade whipped cream so I'm doing that next time. What do you serve your berries on for strawberry shortcake?
My sister Denise and her husband Steve are traveling in Colorado - she texted me this photo of them in Aspen! Isn't this photo amazing?
My red hibiscus has been producing a lot flowers recently, it loves the longer daylight hours. I adore this old tree!
