Strawberry Love

I'm lucky. I got a quart and a half of beautiful strawberries from the CSA. I'll probably get antsy later in June and start looking for tart recipes and oother time-consuming projects such as strawberry jam, but for now, I'm really only interested in eating them. If you have strawberries, you should do the same. Whip up some cream with a tad of vanilla and a sprinkle of sugar (You do have a hand-mixer, right? Because it's going to take some serious arm energy if you're using a whisk...). Grab a bowl of strawberries, top them with some fresh whipped cream and enjoy.

If you've got strawberries that are starting to look less then glamorous, cut them up, toss them in a little sauce pan with a sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice (if you have it) and heat everything up, stirring so you're not burning. Just 5 or so minutes, and you've got yourself a delicious strawberry topping for angel food cake, pound cake or ice cream. Top with the whipped cream and be thankful for summer. And if you're my husband, you'll drizzle the whole thing with some chocolate, for extra decadence.
