Strawberry season is here!

Over the weekend Chris and I went to the farmers' market and we bought a huge container of strawberries.  What could be better???  Nothing beats fresh, local, in-season strawberries that are red all the way through.  The giant supermarket strawberries just do not compare.

So, naturally I did what any sane person would do after coming home from work on Monday: I made shortcakes from scratch.  I used my friend Lauren's recipe (here) and they were delicious.  So delicious that I forgot to take photos, so you're just going to have to take my word for it.  I also made homemade whipped cream and drizzled just a little Pimm's into it.  Heaven.

Now, if I can just find some rhubarb, we'll truly be in business.

Those are gorgeous! We've got at least a month before strawberries are ready here. Rhubarb, we've got!

Bryan introduced us to Pimm's (No. 1) while he was here. That sounds like a great use for it.
