Scrumptious Strawberries

the Strawberry King (king of berry picking that is, just wish I could get him to eat a few while he's at it!)

Happy Memorial Day!

Sweet sticky smell of strawberries with the sun shining and a cool breeze, we could not have asked for a better day for our berry picking adventure.

The fruits of our labor . . . aren't they just lovely!?!
Scrumpdiddyumptious . . . strawberry muffins for dessert, yum!

Strawberry Muffins:
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
1 egg
1 ¼ cups milk
¼ cup shortening, melted
¾ cup fresh strawberries, whole or sliced

Sift together first 4 ingredients. Beat together egg, milk, and shortening. Add
liquid to the dry ingredients, only until combined. Stir in berries. Spoon into
12 medium sized, greased, muffin cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25
minutes or until golden brown.
