I grew up on strawberry shortcake. My mamma's recipe is the best. It's my Grandma Rhodes' recipe revised. I'm not sentimental at all.
My mother was meeting me after work and said she had extra strawberries. I asked if she had shortcake to bring along for Joshua's supper. So she mixed one up and brought me two warm pieces of shortcake. Thank you mother.
I came home in rush and made Josh a bowl of shortcake with strawberries. I set it in front of him and he started eating. I told him how mom would fix just strawberry shortcake for supper in the summer when we were kids. Feeling all nostalgic and such.
He replied, " that's a touching story, but is this really all I'm eating for supper."
I had to laugh.
I pulled some left overs out of the fridge with meat in them. So he ate dessert first tonight. I guess that tradition won't be carried on at our home.
Wouldn't this cure your meat and potato hunger?
