Meal Plan Monday 4/12/10

On Saturday we attended the Ottawa Farms Strawberry Festival in Bloomingdale, Georgia.  It's located just outside of Savannah, Georgia.  Oh my goodness!  We picked a ton of strawberries!  So tomorrow, I'll be sharing a Strawberry Recipe Round Up. (It's already up, you can view it HERE)   I'm featuring recipes from my favorite bloggers using fresh strawberries.  I'm also going to be preparing some Strawberry Preserves and will be posting the tutorial this week.  So you might notice we'll be eating quite a few of the fresh strawberries in our menu this week.  Afterward, I'll flash freeze them and use them in smoothies.

I had actually attended that strawberry fest with my wife and daughter. It was really excellent to taste the wonderfully sweet fruits. Keep up the great work with your articles and please stop by my health blog sometime. The web address is

Thanks for all the strawberry ideas! I've been taking advantage of all the cheap strawberries lately, but I've only been using them one way: macerating them in some vanilla sugar and eating them plain or with buttermilk biscuits. This gave me some great ideas for the rest of the week. :)

I'm loving the cheap prices for strawberries right now. I made strawberry shortcake with homemade whipped topping for dessert last night. Good looking menu this week.
