Remember mother’s day? When we all picked strawberries? Yep, that was fun. Wanna know what I did with the strawberries?
mmm- I took some pictures of em. Yes and no. I also made….
a photo with a little bowl of them. Okay… this is what I really did with them….
yum- how ya like my “props’? I am having fun with that mama day lens. Now I am getting super nerdy. :p
to make this you need strawberries and about 20-30 minutes. Yep- that includes baking and doing dishes time. Unless you have a dishwasher. I have a dishwasher- it’s just of the human variety. They don’t break as much.
This is the same recipe as my muffins here- it’s just made into a loaf pan. But, I will give it to ya again.
In a bowl, mix:
1 1/2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Stir that with a fork. If you like, you can keep this mixture in a zip top bag- that way you always have muffin/bread mix.
Now- in a 1cup measuring cup:
1/3 c oil
2 tsp vanilla
now add milk to the 1c mark.
Add 1/3 c coarsely chopped strawberries, and combine the wet and dry ingredients.
Pour into a prepared loaf pan.
Once cool, drizzle with 2 tps cream mixed with 1 c powdered sugar.

Optional: any fruit can be used. You can also throw in some nuts.
Now- today my plan is to make these spinach balls…. I wanted to do em yesterday but there was an electrician was here all day. Now our ceiling fans work. Which is a big deal- remember last summer? We wanted to see how long we could go without turning on the A/C? Yep. We are at it once more. It’s been nice lately. I haven’t even cracked a sweat- except in the garden. But you’re supposed to sweat there. Anyway, have a wonderful day…. I gotta get the big one to school and then hang laundry. I am soooo old school….. out of necessity. 🙂
