Strawberries 'n Cream

I cannot believe it is the 1st of July!

I must be having fun because time is least I think that's what they say.

One of my favorite summer events as a child was Strawberry Days in Pleasant Grove. It was a day for playing with cousins, amusement park rides, food and lots of strawberries.

My grandmother was the queen of cream. She used cream in 90% of her recipes. No lie.
She taught me that breakfast (Cap'n Crunch and Malt-o-Meal) tasted sooo much better with a little (or a lot) of half and half poured on top. And that was also true with strawberries.

And so today, in honor of July, strawberries and my grandmother, I share this picture with you and wish you the happiest of July's!
Now I must go and eat this bowl of strawberries 'n cream. Yummmmmm.
