Strawberry love


I was reading You Are My Fave this morning {you know, like you do when you're on summer vacation and have loads of time to linger at the kitchen table, savouring your tea and toast and favourite blogs...} and I came across two posts that were full of strawberry goodness. The first was all about celebrating summer with strawberry lemonade {yes, please!} and the second featured the most scrumptious-looking spinach and strawberry salad.


Well, that couldn't even be more perfect! It just so happens that I have a fresh crop of spinach in the garden right now, and loads of lovely strawberries, too. Excellent! I know what I'm making for dinner tonight. Lemonade and salad fresh from the garden? Eaten outside on the lawn?

Yep. Living my manifesto. I love summer.

  2. Mmm! Looks delish! We have wild strawberries growing on our property, but they certainly are tart.

  7. Strawberries are hands-down my favorite summer fruit! I like them in baked goods too. Strawberry pie is so underrated :)

  8. it sounds so silly but i would have never thought to have paired strawberry and spinach. do let me know how it tastes? of course i don't think ANYTHING compares to home grown veggies/fruits.

    cheers to your holiday and sticking to your summer manifesto! <3 :)
