The Strawberry Patch

Last week my grandmother called me.
They were going to Texas for a few days to visit my brother and some other family.
She asked if I could do her a big favor.
"Dacia, while we are gone would you mind coming out to pick the strawberries 
and take them home to eat?"
Hrmm, I dunno grandma.
I'm not a big fan of home grown, farm fresh, delicious, organic strawberries.
But if I am doing you a BIG favor, then I guess I can manage.

So last night Geoff, Dominic, Payton, and I treked
(as much as a 10 minute drive can be a trek)  
out to the farm and pick the most yummy strawberries in the world.
I picked a little over 3 quarts in a short amount of time.

On tonight's agenda, old fashioned strawberry fruit leather!
Just like we used to make when I was a little girl.


  1. BIG favor, indeed! Sounds heavenly! :)

  2. looks SO delicious! what a blessing!!!

    have a great weekend Daicia :)
