Surely heaven must be filled with fresh Ontario Strawberries?
You know summer is really coming when the first signs of strawberries appear at the farmers market.

Smaller, redder and so much sweeter and flavourful than their California counterparts-not to mention a MUCH smaller carbon footprint!...something we should all be thinking about these days.

Those of us in Waterloo County are so fortunate to have such abundance of fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs and meat at our doorsteps!!  Take advantage of it every chance you get--you're doing something good for your tastebuds, your body, your family, your neighbours and your planet!

We celebrated the beginning of Strawberry season with these pancakes, yesterday morning--so delicious, I should have bought 2 quarts!

Strawberries and Cream Pancakes

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp sugar

combine in a measuring cup
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup half and half cream
3 tbsp oil

Add to dry mixture and stir until just combined ( batter will be a little bit lumpy).  Add at least 1 cup of chopped strawberries and cook as per usual.
