U-Pick Then U-Eat

Wednesday, June 5, 2013
 Strawberries are finally in season and we are lucky to have a U-Pick farm just a few miles away.  I called the fruit hotline yesterday morning (really- call before you go!) and was happy to hear that they had ripe strawberries ready to be picked.  Grocery shopping would have to wait until the afternoon...Off we went! 

She lasted about 5 minutes in the Ergo before she wanted in on the fun...

Filling up our tray...

 Sad to leave or exhausted from picking (ie. eating)? 

My snack during Lu's afternoon nap- yum!

Fresh Strawberry smoothie (makes 1): 

2 handfuls of baby spinach
2 large mint leaves
2 handfuls of fresh strawberries 
1 handful of ice (or use frozen berries and no ice!)
2 heaping spoonfuls of Greek yogurt

Blend together and enjoy in the sunshine! :)
