Louisiana strawberries, sweet and natural

Louisiana strawberriesI think after nearly a week of eating mostly carbohydrates during the long days of tornado recovery, I am craving fresh fruit.

I had a blood orange for breakfast, and now I am enjoying Louisiana strawberries for lunch.

Louisiana strawberries are out early this year – I guess because we basically had no winter. The season is usually short, so if you don’t buy them when you see them you might miss them.

I didn’t miss them this year, and now I am enjoying a few. Just washed and sliced. That’s the best way to eat them.

You have to wash them really well because they are picked ripe and covered in mud. But the extra scrub is worth it when you see the bright red fruit appear.

Anyway, the fruit is making things cheerful in the house on this day of rest.
