It was so, so nice having an unexpected afternoon together! We took advantage of the beautiful weather to go strawberry picking. There's nothing better than freshly picked berries!
Just ignore the strawberry juice that may or may not be on my face - totally guilty of snacking out in the field! ;)
We brought our fresh strawberries home to make some strawberry pie! Neither of us have ever had strawberry pie before, but we decided to give it a try.
Oh the pie was so, so good! We used this recipe, but I added three tablespoons of cornstarch to thicken up the filling. I also brushed milk and sprinkled sugar on top before putting it in the oven. And I am just realizing by looking at the recipe that we forgot to put the butter on top. Oops! Still was delicious! :)
However, that container that didn't seem so big at the strawberry fields was actually quite big. And now we have many, many, many fresh strawberries! The ones we used for the pie didn't even begin to put a dent in the batch. I also made some strawberry bread yesterday, and the container still seemed full! We froze some, and we still have strawberries galore left in the fridge!
Not that I'm complaining or anything! :)
