We here in Simi Valley, California
are pretty lucky..
we are right next door to some of the best strawberries
You know those famous little berries who have their own festival..
Even though we didn't make it to the festival this year
These little berry stands are on every other street corner out here
And those little berries just sit there
Flaunting their cute little self's
Adorned in such red's I am blushing just thinking of them...
Well, we bought some right up..
And we have been seeing red since..
First, and probably my favorite way to have them

For Five bucks it was pretty swell..
And of course,
I had to try making strawberry bruschetta that Rachel
posted this week..
and really umm.. amazing..
strawberries marinated and roasted in balsamic vinegar
And for a Memorial Day's feast of a dessert..
I made a berry trifle courtesy of Ms. Martha..
The day ended in the perfect bliss of a
designed by my husband himself..
To all those strawberry lovers out there..
