Yesterday, Spencer asked if we could have spinach salad for dinner tonight. So I mixed up his favorite dressing and bought some baby spinach and almonds--but the strawberries looked dead at the grocery store. So on a whim, we drove down to the local strawberry farm (about 5 miles away) and Spencer picked about 7 pounds of strawberries in less than 10 minutes! They were deep red and about the sweetest we have had. So we snacked on strawberries, had strawberries in our spinach salad, shared strawberries with the family and still have plenty of strawberries left over.
I will probably go back and get more this weekend to chocolate-dip for Mom's birthday party! Email me if you want the recipe for the salad dressing-- it is a family favorite around here!
