I recently bought a half gallon of cream. After waiting for two hours to get into Costco, I swore I would never come again. I started tossing things in my cart as if money were not an issue, because I sure wasn't going back. Normally I buy cream by the pint, but after two hours of freezing my butt off like one of the sheep-le, (rhymes with people), I was determined to make this trip count. And that's how I ended up purchasing a tremendously inappropriate amount of cream for four people.
It felt like insanity at the time, but a week and a half has gone by and the verdict is out. It actually feels very freeing, and I recommend it. Mashed potatoes? No problem. Homemade ice cream? Coming up. Ten pounds of weight gain? Effortless. Like I said, it's freeing. Try it once if you are crazy enough to wait to get into Costco.
This time of year the strawberries at the local farmers market are the best they can get. Sweet, fresh, and drool-worthy. I bought a half-flat yesterday, which is clearly too much for four people to eat in one day. You can keep strawberries for a while, but the flavor the day I buy them is the best. I made chocolate dipped strawberries, strawberry-orange fruit salad, and strawberries and cream popsicles. You'll love them too.
Don't feel like you need to measure anything, I'm only giving you a basic guideline. It's impossible to mess up three ingredients like these.
2 baskets of strawberries
1 cup cream
1/4 cup honey
Blend the strawberries, cream, and honey in the bowl of a food processor. Pour it into popsicle molds and freeze. Or you can just drink it.
I love trying new foods, cooking, and gardening. I hope to share these experiences on this site. Thanks for taking a look!
