Strawberry-licious! #WordlessWednesday w/ Linky



This Summer, our strawberries have been growing like crazy! 


It's Summertime! These beauties are Strawberry-licious!

This said, I've exhausted all my recipes that call for strawberries. Strawberry jams, pies, cakes, smoothies, ice cream...all done over and over. Have you got any interesting and unique recipes that call for strawberries?

Link up your Wordless Wednesday posts here! We'd love to check them out!

I can't believe that we missed out on strawberry picking here this year :(
One of my favourite things to go and do as a family!

OHM:
Wish you lived closer! Would have loved for you and the girls to come pick strawberries on our farm!

Christine McN said...

mamawee:
Ohhhh! Now, THAT sounds DELISH! I'm going to try making that this week since we have no shortage of strawberries!!

Christine McN said...

Tammy:
Last year our farm didn't have that many strawberries. This year, it's the opposite!!!

Kristen said...

Awesome that you grow your own strawberries. I would freeze some whole and blend them up later to make smoothies.

Tasha said...

Mmmmm I absolutely love strawberries!!!! This totally makes me wanna go out and buy some now lol thanks :P

Heather N said...

YUMMO! I love strawberries but hate picking them :P

Kathryn Lavallee said...

I have a great freezable recipe for strawberry scones and another for strawberry rhubarb muffins, both of which freeze really well. I am jealous of your bumper crop! Lol

Manager to Mom said...

Throw 'em in a spinach salad with goat cheese and toasted almonds or pecans. YUM!

Brandi Yee said...

Yum! My favourite fruit! I'm missing them so much this year, as it seems our daughter has a strawberry allergy.

Olivia @ This West Coast Mommy said...

We wanted to go berry picking this year but our local farm didn't allow toddlers. Apparently they eat more than they pick?! :-P

Lisa Marie Fletcher said...

Wow your berries look amazing!!

I puree my berries and freeze it in ice cube trays (then transfer to container/ziploc). Then I have berries for smoothies whenever I want! :D

Mmm.

Mom vs. the boys said...

so jealous, those look amazing!

Strawberries SCREAM summer.

Nothing is more refreshing on a hot Summer day than a strawberry smoothie!! Okay, maybe a strawberry lemonade!

Tasha
Wish you lived closer! I'd GIVE you some! I've got strawberries coming out of my ears! LOL!

Heather
I am going to scour your blog for some strawberry recipes! You always make me hungry when I visit your blog!

Christine McN said...

Kat
Are those recipes on your blog?? I would LOVE to try them out! Could you please send me the links or email them to me? LOL!

MTM
Mmmm! That's one of our favourite recipes!!

Brandi
Ahhhh! Strawberry allergies are not that uncommon, apparently. LO's school sent a letter home at the beginning of the year requesting parents not send fresh berries in their kids' lunches, as one of the kids was highly allergic to fresh berries!

Christine McN said...

Olivia
Haha! I totally see that happening, but to ban toddlers??? Boooo! LOL! My 4 yr old always does the "one for the bucket, two for the mouth" thing!

Lisa Marie
That is such a smart idea!!

MTM
Thank you! :) My kid is always covered in strawberry. She helps pick, but it's always "one for the bucket, two for the mouth"!!

Randa
They totally do!! :)

Love strawberries! Can't wait to go strawberry picking!

Shayna Murray said...

We use to have lots of strawberries until the neighbors trees got out of hand and we no longer have enough sun in the backyard to grow them. I did however buy a potted strawberry plant and my little one is loving that.

Christine McN said...

Carla:
Me too! Just got in from picking more strawberries! LOL!

Christine McN said...

Shayna:
Oh, sweet! I've always wanted to have potted strawberry plants on the patio!

Diana M. said...

I wish we could grow strawberries in our backyard. But at least we got to go strawberry picking in Hamilton last week!
