I'm loving this heart-shaped fruit ;)
I got a lot of strawberries this week. My strawberries usually doesn't last long enough to do anything:) Hubby and I top them with whipped cream and eat them. Or I make strawberry sauce. Aria is not a big fan of strawberries.
I placed a single layer of strawberries in a container lined with a paper towel and sealed with the lid to keep them one week fresh. Lol, this week, I had more strawberries than we could eat.
Today I froze some of them. I didn't use any sugar or syrup. I washed, hulled and drained the strawberries. Then placed them on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper.
Once frozen I put them into freezer bags.
And I used the rest of it to make this fresh strawberry sauce. I also make this simple sauce with frozen strawberries. I like to keep this sauce on hand so makes great topping on ice cream, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, desserts without sugar!
Clean strawberries and remove stems and cores. Put in a blender. Add vanilla and Splenda to desired sweetness and blend all ingredients until smooth. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before serving. You are done! Yummy!
When I was preparing strawberries Aria kept telling me about one of his favorite cartoon shows on TV. Adventure Time with Finn&Jake. Finn is a silly kid who wants to be a hero one day! Jake is his dog and his best friend. My son never misses an episode of their adventures and can't even wait to watch this cartoon every Monday!
Lol, the sauce was ready but Aria was still talking about last episode of this cartoon!!!
