We have a packed day today, celebrating with friends, and getting ready for a trip. So, no strawberry recipe to share. Sorry!
But, I do have two brief things to share…
First, a ton of local people (Seattle) have been asking me where I have been getting all these delicious strawberries. Two places- Spooner Farms has the absolute best tasting strawberries I’ve had in my entire life. No exaggeration! But they are in Olympia (about 2 hours away), and don’t do U-Pick. Lucky for us though they have a berry stand up all summer in Wedgewood on 35th, near 80th. Go early, as they usually run out by noon (they open at 9:30). They told me they would probably start having raspberries in the next week, then blueberries come August. So, if you live in Seattle- you HAVE to check them out! You will not be sorry.
If you like to do U-Pick, my favorite is Remlinger Farms in Carnation (about an hour from Seattle). They are $1.50/lb, close around 3pm, and have a pretty simple set up for U-Pick. Simple works for me. They also have basically a carnival on the weekends for the kids, but be prepared to pay.
And second, here is a brief “day in the life” from my IPhone this week. Be prepared for some fuzzy shots, but I picked my favorites that really captured my summer life with the kids.
Have a great holiday!
