Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Strawberry Baby

Guess what we did today! Yes, strawberries are in season! Glynis and I lathered on the sunscreen and spent an hour squatting in a field. Actually, she was over the picking within the first 10 minutes after she discovered a lady bug and and all the lady bug friends. But I managed to fill two sand buckets with 5 lbs of beautiful juicy ones!

And what to do with all those strawberries?!! I'm not a "freeze 'em" kind of girl! We ate bunches, then dipped some in chocolate, and made a couple of amazingly easy and amazingly tasty desserts. I feel like Martha Stewart!

This dessert consists of an angel food cake (torn into chunks) from the grocery store, topped with a layer of THE BERRIES, vanilla pudding and cool whip. Delish!

And lastly, this easy cool whip/jello pie.
I think we'll be strawberried out in a day or two!

What are you up to?!! Make sure you give a toot and link up.
