Wednesday is "Strawberries and Sugar" Day

I'm back from my bloggy break. I read a few blogs and commented here and there while taking my break. It was good. There are lots of things to discuss and I was torn over what I should say tonight in my return.

I even jotted down a few ideas...
Kristen Chenowith's new autobio "A Little Bit Wicked"...

going to see Hannah Montana the Movie this weekend with my sister...

being inspired by Miley's song "The Climb" ...there will be no judging from any of you because I know some people who happen to have a thing for Zac Efron and the Jonas Brothers.

thinking about naming a little boy Jackson Taylor because I love Miley Stewart's brother Jackson from the show... And just for the record, I am NOT pregnant.

moving in with the 'rents ...Yes this is a real deal, but like the WWofW said, "All in good time dearie, all in good time."

law school silence ...I feel like I've talked this to death and the answer is still NO I don't know anything. BUT the good news is that there is nothing more that I can do, but pray and wait. They are reviewing my applications.

the rain ...but that subject ticks me off so it's definite NO.
Nope, all of these ideas seemed a little lame or maybe just a little too raw to discuss at this point. So tonight y'all will be educated on a most important issue in the summer time.

Strawberries. Strawberries and sugar that is. In the summertime there are two things that are staples at our mealtimes. Grilled foods and strawberries and sugar.

Strawberries and sugar are simply that: strawberries and sugar. It is not complicated. You cut up strawberries and add sugar as needed to your desire.

The part that I love so much about this recipe is that it is simple. It is what it is. That is how I feel about summer. And some of my best memories from my childhood come from this sweet dessert. I can remember being at my aunt's house in the pool all day. After the day was over and we were thoroughly sunburned and had finished a juicy hamburger, there was always dessert.

And it was always strawberries and sugar.

No questions asked.

It was what it was.



Life isn't all that simple now that we are big kids and moving in our separate directions. But every time we eat this dessert like on a night like tonight, I think about the five of us...Amanda, Sarah, Samantha, Brett and Jessica...and smile.

Strawberries and Sugar are one of my all time favorites as well. I prefer to dip my strawberries one at a time though.

Yep. This is a definite summer time staple.

(And I will admit that I am inspired by Miley Cyrus' song The Climb. You're not alone!)
