Twitter is a pretty cool place because (dependent upon who you follow) you’ve got a stream of real-time “news” flowing across your screen with a push of a button. It is a stream of consciousness. It allows you to tap into what others are doing/thinking/reading/eating right this second. Over the last several days it seems every time I refresh my screen, someone is talking about fresh strawberries –or better yet– what to do with them in a recipe! To the point, I kept wondering if it will become a trending topic like Michael Jackson or Election in Iran –okay, maybe I am exaggerating and it’s not that extreme– perhaps it has to do with the fact that I follow people who I have a lot in common with. When they’re thinking strawberry pie … so am I!
I was going to hold off on sharing this recipe until I got to make it myself with beautiful and fresh “Michigan” strawberries … I just learned that my mom is throwing a pool party on Sunday … what could be better than a strawberry pie for dessert? Perhaps I will share pictures of my finished pie after the party -?- Which reminds me, I have spent a large amount of time the last few days reading the Nikon D70 Digital Field Guide. It is my FULL intention to start taking better photos for this blog o’mine.
Nonetheless, I find myself longing to be one with the “twitterverse” so I will share the recipe today and join this wave of strawberry consciousness so here it is: ABCD’s Favorite (and EASY) Strawberry Pie Recipe
