Saturday Morning Scene

Photobucket
PhotobucketThis morning started off a little rough - I missed the alarm clock for my BodyPUMP class :( so I'll be spending some time this afternoon walking the neighborhood to try and make up for my miss.  The hubs and I decided to spend the time I would have been at the gym - at the strawberry fields picking some DELICIOUS strawberries.  There is a little farm not more than 10 minutes from our house and so we picked up my mom, who also LOVES to strawberry pick, and headed for the fields.  In 10 minutes we had both picked 6+ pounds of fresh strawberries.  It was such a beautiful morning with the sun shining and the weather in the 60s and we enjoyed our time, albeit pretty short, picking strawberries.  Addie even seemed to appreciate the change in scenery.  Now I have to figure out what to do with all of those berries - besides eat fresh and share with our neighbors.  Last year I attempted to make some jam but it came out a little thin.  Anyone have any good strawberry recipes??

how crazy looking is this one?!

We are also hoping to start some pretty major projects around the house here shortly so we'll be spending the rest of the day perusing home improvement stores and getting ready to take Addie to her first baseball game tonight with the fam (Go Tides:)).  Hope everyone else is having a wonderful Saturday and in case I don't make it back here tomorrow - for all you mommas - HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

I linked up this morning with Katie over at Loves of Life to share my Saturday Morning Scene.  Head on over to see what everyone else is up to or share your morning.

Yay for strawberry picking! There's a field near our house, too, but I haven't gotten the courage to take my girls there! Fresh strawberries are the best, though!

Megan said...

I'm envious of your strawberry picking...I'd love to go!!

I love to eat berries plain, but I also like using them in smoothies too. Maybe you could make some strawberry shortcake?

Those strawberries look delicious! I just saw a cool strawberry shortcake in a mason jar recipe...maybe on Naptime is the New Happy Hour? I'd try to make jelly/preserves, not that I know how!

I made a strawberry bread that was amazing. You can find the recipe at my other blog, simply made with love. Just search strawberry bread and you'll find it!

Those strawberries look amazing! So fresh and it's always so fun to go to one of those u-pick it places.

Picking Strawberries sounds (and looks) much better then boot camp.

Happy Mother Day,
