Here’s how this all came to life…
A typical Sunday for me involves a trip to the Farmers Market, where I usually spend majority of our weekly grocery budget. I had a weak moment and ended up with several pounds of beautiful, mouth watering strawberries. I can’t be certain what my rationale was for purchasing a months worth of strawberries especially when our household consists of just my husband and I (& on a tight budget, might I remind you). In order to justify my purchase, I began testing various recipes (equals feeding others) and thought what better way to celebrate strawberry season then by hosting a strawberry themed event, such as a brunch with the girls.
It’s always nice to have a little something for your guest to take as a “thank you”. If you don’t want to go through the canning process, make this Strawberry jam (via Sophistimom), but make enough for yourself because I can guarantee you’re going to want a batch for yourself.
