It's Strawberry Time on the prairie
And I'm on my second flat
They are so good,
And with these sweet local strawberries
I wonder why I ever buy the ones in the store!
Friday I used part of them to make a pie
A fresh strawberry pie
The recipe I've had before my marriage
It was always served at lunch counters and tea rooms and cafeterias
at strawberry time . . . and only at strawberry time
I make at least one a year
With our local berries.
Friday, we were meeting friends for dinner
And then they were coming back to Linderhof
for dessert and coffee,
hence the pie.
And Friday afternoon, when I took my tea
In the breakfast room
(Sometimes I indulge myself with a Spode teapot
instead of the crockery one)
tea for me!
And the tea treat
I'm sure it has a fancier name but that's what we called it.
The little scrapes leftover from a pie,
buttered, sugared and cinnamoned
And baked along with the pie.
As a child, I think I liked the "pie crust" better than the
And it was as good as I remembered
With a pot of Earl Grey,
the warm cinnamon sugary buttery pie crust was perfect!
And I didn't even tell Husband Jim that it was tea time
I didn't share!
And after dinner at our favorite local restaurant, Crooners,
we came back to Linderhof
and slices of that strawberry pie
topped with a big blob of whipped cream
and a perfect strawberry!
It's Tuesday and I'm sharing with:
