I received a number of wonderful ideas from last week’s contest. I
put my favorite 9 up on my site but I need your help picking the
winner. You can vote for your two favorites (including your own).

>From everyone who votes, I’ll choose this week’s winner. The prize is
a new copy of Enlightening Cinderella: Beyond the Prince Charming
Fantasy. It’s a great book for yourself or to give as a gift to
someone.

THE STRAWBERRY OF MY EYE
by Michael Webb

Spring is probably my favorite time of year. It’s when the birds sing
their most beautiful songs on my window ledge. The flowers and trees
here in North Carolina are at their majestic peak. And it’s time to
pick strawberries!

Spending an afternoon picking the crimson fruit with Athena is a
rewarding date. We pick a few berries and then eat one. Pick some
more, eat some more. Eventually, we fill up our buckets and make our
way home.

One of the very first things we do is wash enough to fill two bowls,
sprinkle a tiny bit of sugar on top and then pour in some milk. Yumm.

Somehow washing and cutting up strawberries doesn’t seem like a chore,
unlike broccoli or cauliflower. I guess it is the anticipation of all
the wonderful things we will be able to make with our two buckets of
the bright red fruit. Strawberry pie, strawberry shortcake,
strawberries and whipped cream, strawberry tarts, strawberry smoothies
and the list goes on and on.

We usually freeze about half of our pickings for future berry desserts
and eat the other half in that first week by putting them in our
breakfast cereal or on top of ice cream in addition to the incredible
desserts Athena makes.

The same holds true if we go to an orchard and pick blueberries. Some
people have apple, peach or blackberry picking dates.

Go pick some fruit with your peach this spring or summer. It’s
inexpensive, it’s good exercise and it’s berry delicious.
