Fresh Strawberries, It's Whats For Breakfast

Happy Easter Everybody, I hope you are having a blessed Easter. Since it is Easter Sunday I have a fun post for you today. It is Strawberry Season in the Lowcountry and my goal is to have fresh local berries in the fridge at all times throughout the season. We are fortunate to have a pick-your-own field located within a mile of the house. Recently we had guests from West Virginia and of course one of the many "Vacationland" activities for the week was a trip to the berry patch. While I am tempted to say that half of the fun was harvesting the delectably sweet red morsels of deliciousness, that is really not true, because that would only leave half of the fun for eating them, and that would be a gross understatement of fact. The fact is, eating them is really most of the fun. That is probably why I also never pass up the chance to buy pre-picked local berries at the Summerville Farmers Market.

The morning after our visit to the berry patch, the daughter of our guests, Jensen, was treated to an AWESOME Belgian Waffle with fresh berries and whipped cream. Judging by the smile on Jensen's face, I think she enjoyed the treat, what do you think?
