Creative Uses for Strawberries

Strawberries were cheap this week so I went ahead and picked up some. I have to admit, strawberries have to be one of my favorite fruits but I don’t buy them often. I wasn’t really sure what we would use them for but Don got creative, as usual. It’s good to have him home. 🙂

Scrambled Eggs with Strawberries

Say what? Yep. That’s what he did. He sautĂ©ed the strawberries with a little salsa, then added the eggs and scrambled it together. He seasoned it with salt, pepper, and a little cayenne pepper, and topped it off with a little green onion. It was amazing. This was breakfast before the bum run last weekend.

After the bum run, we needed a little fuel to hold us over till dinner.

Fruit Salad-Slaw

What exactly is that? I didn’t know what else to call it. Don made a sort of fruity slaw using cabbage shreds, fresh locally grown cucumbers that he de-seeded and sliced in strips, raisins, pumpkin seeds, and strawberries. He dressed it with our homemade coleslaw dressing. Might sound a little weird, but it was good.

Some people like to paint pictures, or do gardening, or build a boat in the basement. Other people get a tremendous pleasure out of the kitchen, because cooking is just as creative and imaginative an activity as drawing, or wood carving, or music.
