Kevin makes a gorgeous strawberry rhubarb pie. I wonder if he’ll make one again for me this summer. Last year we went to Larriland a few times during the strawberry season and loaded up on so many strawberries we didn’t know what to do with them all. Kevin is the baker in the family, so he’s in charge of making desserts. (He says I’m a two trick pony when it comes to desserts – cherry clafoutis and tres leches – but hey buddy my clafoutis and tres leches are super delicious!) The entire month of June 2013, he was churning out all sorts of strawberry creations – strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry soup, cheesecake topped with strawberries, eton mess, strawberry pavlovas, strawberry meringue roulade…it was strawberry madness. Unfortunately this year, strawberry season was too short and we only made it out to the farm on the last remaining days of the season. We knew we wouldn’t be back again for the strawberries and I really wanted to get 20lbs – but that’s me being greedy again. Greedy greedy lisbeth! We ended up with about 5lbs and ate them fresh throughout the day. Supermarket strawberries just aren’t the same…but I suppose they’ll have to do.
