Strawberries have been on sale everywhere lately. As a strawberry lover, I happen to appreciate this muchly.
Last week one store had them 3/$5; in the course of a week, I bought six containers.
Today, another store had them on sale for .99! I haven't seen strawberries for .99 since we lived in Arizona. Why I remember that, I do not know. However, I clearly remember walking with baby Caroline (we were a one car family then) to the commissary several times to fit as many cartons of .99 strawberries as I could in the stroller.
Even though I had two containers of strawberries in my refrigerator already, I couldn't resist the .99 special and I bought three more.
It's a good thing Caroline and I like strawberries.
I couldn't help it; I was inspired by this odd berry with the cluster of seeds at the tip.
My eye went to that one immediately; in general, I tend to eat the 'odd' ones first. The misshapen ones; the ones with crazy seed clusters or the ones with an odd shaped tip. Weird looking strawberries need love, too.
Likewise, I eat the curled up tortilla chips first. They're my favorite.
I suppose I could do something special with the surplus of berries I have, but I hate to waste them in a baked good. I much prefer fresh, juicy berries in their most natural state. Especially since these are particularly tasty. Up until very recently, I haven't had much success finding tasty berries; they've all been sour and tasteless.
But not these.
In other news, it's very windy today. And humid.
My hair has seen better days.
