This past April I had a birthday as big as one of the ripe strawberries you see above, I turned thirty! My dear uncle always plans a special dinner for my birthday and this year we decided to celebrate by making a trip to a local strawberry patch. To top it off we had dinner at Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand. Delicious. They even had tasty things for my vegan boyfriend.

After visiting The Strawberry Patch in Meansville I thought I had enough berries to make pies, smoothies, freezer jam, ice cream…. the list goes on. But after a few smoothies and making Nancie McDermott’s Strawberry Icebox Pie from her book Southern Pies my ¬†berry supply was kaput! Just thinking about the pie makes me feel wistful and greedy. Thankfully I shared the luscious dessert or I would have ended up standing in the glow of the refrigerator late at night with a pie pan in one hand, a spoon in the other, and a big gluttonous smile on my face… okay so maybe that doesn’t sound so bad.

Enjoy my little birthday adventure and while strawberries have ended their season in Georgia please visit The Strawberry Patch as they will have lots of other summer berries and vegetables to pick.

Luckily for Mr. L the nice people at The Strawberry Patch had a sunhat and sunscreen.
