Strawberry Season

A good deal, eight lbs. of yummy strawberries, and a very happy freezer ...

 Washed, sliced, and stirred with sugar ...

Bagged and tagged.

A bit of heaven in my freezer! 

Company for last month's freezer jam.

A Random Green Smoothie ... Purple ... It's Purple ...

After my walk this morning with a good friend, I decided that I was craving a smoothie. So, I tossed some stuff in the blender.

Frozen blueberries
Frozen Dark Sweet Cherries
Just over a Tbs of cocoa powder
A few dark chocolate chips
Some wheat germ
A drizzle or two of honey
A large handful of baby spinach
Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk

Mixed it up with the blender. The verdict? Fantastic! Definitely a keeper. The dark fruit keeps it from looking green if that's something that upsets you. It's a really pretty deep bluish purple. Yum!
