Love Thursday: Strawberry o’ Love

I wasn’t going to blog today (already going to break my 3-day-a-week rule!), but I just couldn’t hold in the love any longer.

Remember Tomato Love from a few weeks ago?

Well now we have some strawberry lovin’ goin’ on around here:

    Beautiful, heart-shaped strawberry! I’ve been trying to find some strawberries to grow, with no luck. I know you are having a great time with your mom! Happy Love Thursday right back at ya!

    Andrea’s last blog post..Iโ€™m Fifty!

    I’ve never grown strawberries, but I’d like to…maybe next year I’ll have my very own heart-strawberry ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, GREAT time, thanks!

    You have some Motherly love going on too. I hope she has a lovely time.

    I *think* she’s having a lovely time…I sure hope so too ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You really have an eye for finding heart shapes! Funny that you posted a strawberry as our local strawberry patch just put up their strawberries for sale sign yesterday.

    Mmm…eat some for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    This really needs to be dipped in chocolate and served with champagne!

    I’ve decided for the Marmite. Still have to get the post up though !

    Little things definitely make me happy, and finding reminders of love is definitely one of them ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yum. Looks like it would be a juicy one. Wanna share?

    Sorry Robin–too late!

    That makes me hungry. Gnn.

    Here’s a query: do strawberries freeze into what can only be called ‘sorbet-fruit’, like grapes, or do they go mushy?

    Mikeachim’s last blog post..5 Reasons To Be Elsewhere

    Mike, I believe they do indeed go mushy after being frozen, but a great way to freeze them for a dessert, for example, would be to freeze them in a sugary syrup and then serve them over ice cream or cake ๐Ÿ™‚

    That has got to be the most perfectly shaped heart. Beautiful.
    Happy LT

    ahh strawberries, have yet to have one sweet to perfection this year, but I know I will taste such delight soon.

    In other fruit news…
    left a small peach (or perhaps it was a nectarine) in the car, all day, about 90 degrees. Stuck in traffic, Cheese and I were starving, I got the peach from the backseat, it felt really hot in my hand, I thought it would be gross, but I bit into it, and it was delicious, we fought over it, each insisting on getting every other bite. We held it over a plastic bag to catch any juiciness our mouths missed.
    So I see your strawberry love, and match you with my hot peach love.

    Taffiny, that is *awesome* fruit news! And I can’t help but noting that you and peaches certainly get along well ๐Ÿ˜‰
