Strawberry picking

Last Saturday, we went strawberry picking at Jone's Family Farm in Shelton. It was a perfect day because it wasn't hot at all. Andrew and I picked 9+ lbs of berries together. There are some interesting looking ones. Of course, Andrew got yelled at when I saw him picking the smallest strawberries that I have ever seen(see the following pictures). But after all, it was an fun experience. What do I do with 9 lbs of berries? I have made Strawberry Bread. It tasted good to most of the people at work. Andrew likes it. So I am going to make another batch of it. If I have more strawberries left, I may make another batch for the ladies. We'll see...

Strawberry bread? I've never heard of such a thing, but it looks delicious! Where did you get your recipe from?

Looks like fun! The mutant berries are quite interesting... and the bread sounds delicious.

P.S. Your swallowtail shawl is gorgeous and the cabbage rolls and quiche look very tasty to me (I am positive I would love both). I hope Cookie has healed up nicely.

Hee hee - mutant strawberries!

Strawberry bread sounds really good to me...I think I want to make some!

That bread looks great! If you still have berries left over, I recommend easy strawberry jam. Here's one where you don't have to cook anything so it won't heat up the kitchen. My mom makes it in the summer and it's so good.
