Strawberry Fields

SwimmerGirl and I went strawberry picking last weekend at a farm about an hour away. The weather wasn't beautiful--but it wasn't 9,000 degrees either, a nice change. In the end, and despite my plans to have less, we picked over 11 lbs of strawberries. They're just so sweet and perfectly ripe right now--it was hard stopping when we did. Surprisingly, 11 lbs of strawberries isn't that hard to use up. On that first day we made strawberry shortcakes for lunch, strawberry daiquiris to drink, and a big strawberry-lime pie for dinner (yes, that was dinner.) A couple of days later, I made a big strawberry-blueberry soufflé, which was light and creamy and very easy to make.
