Back in Maryland the strawberry season really happens in May. In Texas it happens from February to May!
So on February 1st, when Lisa ended up with only having to work half a day we went strawberry picking. We snagged two gallons worth (so a bucket each) and have been putting them on salads, ice cream, in smoothies, in crepes and eating them plain for the past two weeks. It almost makes living in Texas worth it.
