It Will be a Strawberry SOMETHING


It is WAY to hot to even think about turning on the oven right now. I have a flat of strawberries, and I think I'm just going to make the granita over at Coconut and Lime, until this heat breaks. Or I break, whichever!


UPDATE: I made the granita. It was a HUGE hit as a dessert for our fish fry on Saturday afternoon! Then, on Sunday, we took our inner tubes and our ice chest and some friends, and went to float on a river nearby (we are so country...). (Which turned out to be a GREAT idea, since it was 105 degrees on Sunday, and the river was still kind of glacial. Aaaahhhh...) The leftover granita, despite the ice chest, was more of a slushy texture than a sorbet texture, but it was still a refreshing snack!

I stood over the stove for hours yesterday making strawberry jam with two gallons of berries. I froze three gallons.

My ankles looked like softballs! But my baby boy will have preserves. Okay, maybe not anytime soon, but my big boy, aka the husband, will!

My hat is off to you! The very thought of it makes me faint... :P
