Beautiful dish! Is that Lenox! Strawberries aren’t in season til June here! They have them in the grocery stores but they aren’t as sweet as they should be when they’re in season.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Yes, it’s a Lenox Chip & Dip (a/k/a Strawberries and Sugar) Dish ~ a wedding gift from one of my bridesmaids. Strawberries are in season here. These beauties grew in Plant City, an hour’s drive. They taste(d) spectacular. 😀

2. katecrimmins - April 2, 2013

and now I am craving strawberries….

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Strawberries in season = well-received sweet treats. These beauties got gobbled up in short order on Sunday. 😀

You just hit my weak spot, Nancy. `I LOVE ’em!.
Can’t wait until locally grown ones are around
Thank you

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Biting into a red ripe strawberry is a sweet treat. 😀

4. Grannymar - April 2, 2013

We have to wait until June for our local variety of strawberries. Mind you, with the crazy weather round these parts it may be Christmas before they are ripe.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Maybe they’ll be ripe for “Christmas in July” celebrations! Keep your fingers crossed. 😀

5. Tom Merriman - April 2, 2013

Those strawberries look good, Nancy!

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

I think I am NOT the only strawberry fan round here. 😀

6. Maggie - April 2, 2013

Ah, strawberries! So delicious.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Yes! Perfect for guilt free indulgence.

7. ericjbaker - April 2, 2013

Throw some whipped creme on there and I’m in.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

How about a fresh out of the oven shortcake biscuit to go with your strawberries and cream? :mrgreen:

ericjbaker - April 2, 2013

Pile it on. I”ll bring the plate.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Now I’m HONGRY! Mom used to make the best strawberry shortcake with their own homegrown strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

I need a snack! 😀

8. colonialist - April 2, 2013

Oh, yummissimo!

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Strawberries are berry good! 😀

9. Patricia - April 2, 2013

Now I gotta go get strawberries! And whipped cream or maybe vanilla ice cream. You are a trouble maker! :~)

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

We love serving them over vanilla ice cream! 😀

10. Andra Watkins - April 2, 2013

Yummy! We got some today in our CSA share.

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

Enjoy! I’m sure they will be FABULOUS straight from the farm.

11. Tammy - April 2, 2013

Yum! Tis the season
For bright berry beholding
Casting winter off

nrhatch - April 2, 2013

I love your haiku . . . especially “casting winter off.” 😎

12. Three Well Beings - April 3, 2013

Beautiful! And cheery!

nrhatch - April 3, 2013

Sometimes strawberries miss the mark . . . but these lived up to their looks.

13. Pix Under the Oaks - April 3, 2013

That is a beautiful plate of strawberries! I could go for that right now!!

nrhatch - April 3, 2013

They were a B~I~G hit at our Easter gathering . . . even more than the oatmeal raisin cookies and fudge brownies.

14. bluebee - April 3, 2013

Yumm. And we’re toodling into soup and curry mode down here

nrhatch - April 3, 2013

Our spring arrives as your summer fades into fall . . . and the world turns. 😎

15. diannegray - April 3, 2013

I was eating strawberries yesterday and now I’m craving for more, Nancy! 😀

nrhatch - April 3, 2013

We’ve had the best luck with them this year. Just delish!

16. sufilight - April 4, 2013

This looks delicious. I used most of the strawberries I recently purchased to make fruit smoothies as they weren’t very sweet.

nrhatch - April 4, 2013

That’s what we do if they aren’t sweet. We’ve been very lucky this year with strawberries that taste BETTER than they look.

17. kateshrewsday - April 4, 2013

Mouth watering, Nancy!

nrhatch - April 4, 2013

Sounds like you share a love of strawberries with your dad. Same holds true for me.

18. jannatwrites - April 5, 2013

You’re killing me…first I see your more recent post with a picture of cookies and brownies…now these yummy strawberries. Great picture, though!

nrhatch - April 5, 2013

Thanks, Janna. I’ve never thought to serve strawberries this way before . . . but I’d do it next time. In fact, we just bought more strawberries today!

19. Perfecting Motherhood - April 5, 2013

Yum! We just had stawberries and sugar for dessert yesterday.

nrhatch - April 5, 2013

Delicious and Nutritious. I love when kids are enthused about eating FRUIT.

20. shreejacob - April 6, 2013

Ooo…that plate of strawberries and cream looks absolutely yummyliciously divine!!!!

shreejacob - April 6, 2013

Oh wait…was that sugar? d’oh! LOL…
Well I’d love to have it with cream AND sugar then…hehehe

nrhatch - April 6, 2013

We sometimes SEE what we WANT to see. Either way, it’s BERRY good.
