Very Strawberry Week
September 23, 2016
Who cares if Brangelina is breaking up? We’re having a Very Strawberry Week here! We saw strawberries at irresistible prices last weekend so we hogged two 2lb boxes of these babies at $2.99 per box. Ya, I had nothing better to do got curious and decided to count how many strawberries there are. There’s around 48 in each box Wooo!
So what does one do with like 100 strawberries? First off, we started chomping them. That’s obvious! But it was too much to eat since we have a lot of other fruits on the agenda.
These strawberries were sweet and firm but after a couple of days, I noticed a few, mostly the ones at the bottom, were getting a bit soft. Those are the sweetest ones, don’t throw them away! You can juice them like I did.
Then Hip2bDaughter1 had a brainwave and suggested baking a couple of batches of strawberry crumble muffins. Yeah, why not? After all, we have enough flour in the house to start a mini bakery. They were on sale for $1 per 2lb bag so yes sir, yes sir, Baa Baa Black Sheep hogged 3 bagfuls.
I won’t lie. I like seeing seasonal price changes where prices actually do come down every so often, so you won’t feel like your wallet got ripped and now there’s a huge hole in it. I mean, who doesn’t love a bargain? Well, I can’t speak for everyone but from the perspective of a mom with kids, I’m in for sure!
