I didn’t like strawberries until I was about 16-17 years old. I know, *gasp!*
But I grew up as an extremely picky eater. In fact, I’m still kind of picky, but I’m not even remotely as bad as I used to be. I don’t really remember any “bad experiences” with strawberries from my younger days, but for whatever reason, I hadn’t given them a chance in years. Then I was at a friend’s graduation party and the strawberries just looked SO GOOD. So I decided to give them a shot, and well, I’ve never looked back. In terms of fruit, they have easily become one of my favorites.
And so it is always a pleasure when I walk into the grocery store this time of year and see the HUGE displays of strawberries right as I walk in the door. It’s also around this time of year that the prices drop to 2 lbs. for $3 (usually $5 throughout the rest of the year). Not only that, but the strawberries get GOOD. So tasty.
I’ve picked up 2 lbs. of strawberries each week for the last few weeks, but we’ve been going through them too quickly. So this week, I decided to go big… 4 lbs.! Check out this huge box of delicious-looking berries:
Summer is almost here… I can’t believe Memorial Day is this weekend. Wow. We’ve started summer hours at work, which is obviously awesome. We come in a bit earlier Monday through Thursday, but then we get half day Fridays. It’s quite the perk.
Other than that, not much else going on around these parts, which is why I’ve been kind of quiet on the blog for the last two weeks or so. Last week, I was mostly dead tired and didn’t feel like doing much of anything… going into work earlier every day took its toll. But this week, I’m feeling much more adjusted.
Oh! And I am constantly thinking about and waiting on that baby. Sounds like he will be here early next week at the latest (will likely resort to induction). I can’t wait!
