Strawberry Fields Forever

Last week I took the kids to pick strawberries.  There are a couple of places you can do this in NWA. It was SUPER hot but we enjoyed picking them.  

And they were all so beautiful!!!!!

We love strawberries just by themselves but I thought I would share a few things we made with them also! 

We love a good strawberry smoothie (especially in a Razorback cup).  This is just strawberries, bananas, yogurt or milk and ice.  

Something  I LOVE is to make strawberry salsa.  You cut up one apple in small pieces, 2-3 kiwi, and about a quart or more of strawberries.  Then mix in a tablespoon or two of strawberry jam.  I get the Stacy's cinnamon and sugar pita chips to eat with it but you could also bake pie crust or tortillas with cinnamon and sugar on them to eat with it or just eat it by itself.  It's SOOOO good! 

We made home made strawberry pop tarts and I need you to know this was one of the yummiest things I have had in a long time.  Our recipe only makes 6 and we are wishing we had about 36 of them.  We made a video showing you how we made them if you want to try it.  I promise you won't regret it!!! 

And now we are growing our own little patch of strawberries! Maybe this pandemic quarantine summer isn't all that bad after all!
