Strawberries



A lot of the country is buried in snow and we're getting lots (and lots!) of rain here in San Diego. However, we just received one small harbinger of spring.



We're loving our CSA boxes from Be Wise Ranch and this week's box had two clamshells (the plastic tubs) of strawberries. They're tiny and pack an amazing amount of flavor, so it's a shame to do anything but snack on them. No sauces, shakes, or baking... just enjoying a sweet little reminder that strawberry season will be here soon enough.
