« Cracking the Recipe: The Local's Peanut Butter Pie | Main | Father's Day Strawberry Shortcake Debacle »

Sure hope you practice what you preach!

I'm hoping to get out to either Verill farm or Land's Sake for lots of PYO!

That picture makes me think of all the times our family went on vacation to Pajaro Dunes in Watsonville, CA. From the highway, there is a 2 mile long road (Beach Road) in order to get to the beach houses, and there are fields of strawberries planted on either side of the road. The Salinas, Watsonville, Castroville area is really pretty that way. I've never seen miles and miles of strawberries before, (or miles of artichokes for that matter.)

Quote: "Go make your dad some strawberry shortcake or you'll never hear the end of it!". So guess what? She DID NOT, I repeat, DID NOT make me strawberry shortcake. Instead she handed me a pint of strawberries and a bottle of heavy cream! Thank goodness I didn't ask for a chicken dinner....I would have ended up with a live hen and a hachet! Come on people, make sure she doesn't hear the end of it!!

I've been slacking off a bit too...and eating quart after quart of fresh, local strawberries. Enjoy!

What cruelty to tease somebody with strawberry shortcake! I hope Dad eventually gets his fully prepared strawberry shortcake. Seems like he's pretty deserving from what I've read on the blog ;)

I don't know about him, but I'd settle for a strawberry rhubarb pie, myself =D Summer's full of good fruits and vegetables, but somehow it's still so hard to eat healthily.

In Tammy's defense, there was already a set Father's Day plan to get giant sundaes at Cabot's with the kids. So to expect strawberry shortcake after that is a little much. It's not like you want to have a pile of strawberry shortcake to take home - it has to be made fresh or it'll be a soggy mess. Hence the cream - whip it or zip it Dad!

To be frank, the amount of complaining that was heard around here was excessive. Free sundaes and shiny new kitchen gear presents apparently were not adequate for some.

I was very happy with my lovely Father's Day!!

Here in the south of France, strawberry season started back in April and has been over for a couple of weeks now. It's all melons, apricots, watermelons, raspberries and peaches in the market now. Nothing wrong with that, they're all delicious, but they're just not STRAWBERRIES.
