We went strawberry picking this week, so guess what featured in all our recipes?
I started off by making Strawberry Jam because I was going to need it for some other recipes. It worked really well, but I wish it called for less sugar…I’ll probably cut the amount of sugar in half next time.
This morning for breakfast we had these PB&J smoothies. Hubs thought it wasn’t sweet enough and added sugar and more strawberries. I liked it as is though, I don’t need as much sugar as he does.
Also had this Ricotta & Strawberry Toast which was pretty good. We used a tangerine/strawberry marmalade, and it was perfect with the rest.
We’ve had this Strawberry Banana Bread before and it was amazing, so we decided this was the perfect time to make it again.
I made this Farro Caprese Salad which was pretty decent, but I over salted the farro a little. Definitely didn’t need as much, especially since it’s made with pesto.
This Strawberry Grilled Cheese would have been amazing if I hadn’t burnt some of it 🤦🏼♀️ I over toasted one side, but the flavor was good other than that.
Strawberry Balsamic Baked Wings had excellent flavor, but I think I’d do it a little differently. I’d like to do a straight double air fry instead of baking and then just toss them in the sauce at the end.
Last but not least I made these Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Meatballs. They were definitely the best, most well-rounded item of the day and that’s something I look forward to eating for the rest of the week. After I took the picture I threw some rice in the bowls and were ready to go!
All in all not a bad haul, plus a few snack size bags of fresh strawberries for snacks.
