This is the weekend. This is the weekend to snatch your strawberries before their sweet aroma drifts away on the summer wind.
When it comes to berries, I’m like one of those rats in a pleasure experiment where the scientist gives them a button that mimics orgasm, and the rats just push the button over and over until they’re in a coma.
About 40-50 pounds of strawberries have come through our house in the last two weeks. We couldn’t possibly need that many strawberries. But have you stuck your nose into a pint of ruby-red Oregon Hood strawberries and then let their juices explode in your mouth?
You’d be pushing that button over-and-over-again, too.
I’m avoiding dairy and doing low sugar right now, but I had to find a way to have a decadent strawberry milkshake. My friend Sara suggested strawberry-roasting, and that’s what started me down this path…
This can easily be done with real ice cream and milk, of course. Either way, enjoy, and let me know if you have suggestions!
