We picked up a big package of strawberries a few days ago at the more expensive grocery store in town called Los Andes. They have more hard to find items and imported types of foods. I sent Papa over there in search for some bread flour to use with my new (used) bread machine my friend gave me. (Thanks Joy!) Papa picked up some all purpose flour not remembering why I needed "bread flour" when I had explained to him that bread flour has more gluten and makes better bread in the bread machine. Doh! So I have an abundance of all purpose flour and a bunch of strawberries. So like the saying, "when life gives you lemons...."
I made strawberry scones! Yum! I think the baking bug is starting to come back for me.
The strawberries Papa bought were not Honduran like we usually buy. These were imported from Guatamala and boy are they huge. Really big and nicely colored. Usually it's a mixed bag when we buy the Honduran kind and can be half molding already and they are about half the size too. The Honduran strawberries cost us about $1.30 but these really big, pretty ones from Guatamala were about $5! Papa didn't realize their cost until he was paying for them. Brother just had strawberries and yogurt this morning for snack. I really like these. Great treat!
