Today's Theme... Strawberries (Salad Bowl)



It might be a salad bowl, but I think that it would look even better full of sliced strawberries. We go through tons. Just so many different ways to serve them. In our house it's a toss up, strawberry shortcake or strawberries with whipped cream.

Today's Theme... Strawberries (Snowcone Syrup)



I can remember making these for the kids when they were little and they were huge hits. Nothing like a snowcone when the temps keep climbing. And it does make a summer afternoon just a little more special.
