Works for me Wednesday

Strawberry season is here (and almost gone, I'm afraid). I love strawberries. I love them fresh, I love them mashed, I love them on shortcake. That brings me to what works for me. I think this is something my Mom did, so maybe a lot of people do this, but when I am ready to prepare strawberries for shortcake, I hull and wash them. I then use a pastry blender to slice them. It cuts through them easily and the berries don't seem to get stuck on it like they do when I use a masher. Try it and enjoy your shortcake while you can! For more ideas visit Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer.

I don't remember Mom doing that. I'll have to give it a try.

Hello from Finland!

I also love strawberries! We eat them lot in the summer and rather much even in winter. Frozen strawberries which haven't melted yet almost at all is a nice treat. It's also healthy while I don't use sugar at all in freezing them.

I also hate bugs! We have some small ones in our kitchen - AND I HATE THEM!!

By the way you have a Finnish name so do you have some contacts to Finland?
