Strawberries and Rosemary

It's that time of year again in Southern California, strawberry season.
It seems like every street corner you drive by has a white booth with
STRAWBERRIES painted across the top.

Most days you can even smell them in the air.
These roadside stands are usually pretty busy, and the berries are absolutely the best.


For me, these stands always remind me of Rosemary.


Right about now you're thinking I have some phenomenal strawberry rosemary scone recipe.
Or a rosemary mojito with strawberry syrup.....nope.


Rosemary is my sister-in-law.


Rosemary is one of those women that can:  kick-a@$ in a boardroom, knit herself a scarf to wear to lunch, pick-up car pool at the middle school, beat her kid's high score on club pogo, make a fabulous dinner and make the best margarita known to man (she even has her own slushy machine)....all in one day.


You give Rosemary a flat of strawberries and five minutes later you have chocolate covered strawberries, strawberry pie AND strawberry preserves WITH a strawberry margarita on the side.



(okay, maybe not five minutes)



So when I saw the flat of strawberries in our fridge.....I was inspired.








And then I added some flowers...because that's what I do.







And then I bagged them up because one family can only eat so many sugar cookies.








Thanks for stopping by,
