Summer Strawberries

One of the nicest things about summer is all the fresh produce that is available at farmer's markets and roadside stands. I just can't get enough. This year, I have some container gardens, though the critters seem to be stealing much of my treasures. So I'm still scouting the farm stands whenever I go out.

This week, I picked up some delicious strawberries.

Strawberries are good no matter what, but they are especially tasty when prepared to maximize their sweetness and juiciness:

1) 1 pint of strawberries
2) 1 tablespoon honey
3) 1 tablespoons lemon juice

Slice the strawberries in quarters and place in a bowl. Drizzle with the honey and lemon juice and refrigerate. That's it!

I love eating these out of the fridge, nice and cold and sweet on a hot summer day.
(notice my awesome bowl that I bought in P-town after the Ragnar Relay)

Ah, life is good.
