Berry Good!

Bri and I did our annual strawberry picking on Monday. We had a great day to go, it was fun!

That night I dipped some in chocolate for dessert! YUM!
This strawberry was deformed--it had grown funny. That made it unique!

I made freezer jam with them today, and this pie for dessert tonight! Mmmmmm
