Strawberry shortcake has got to be my most favourite summer recipe.
The cake drenched with strawberries and whip cream…I could eat it breakfast, lunch and dinner.
And oh yeah, for dessert too!
Strawberries are always on hand in our house this time of year so it doesn’t take much to whip up this shortcake recipe in no time.
And yesterday was Canada Day so these colours were the perfect fit!
My kids have been in pony camp this week. It’s truly adorable.
I grew up on a hobby farm so it’s wonderful to see my kids on a farm and enjoying every minute of it.
They are learning all about horses, taking care of them, riding them, cleaning the horse’s stall and picking berries on the farm.
After a long day of riding horses in the heat, the camp turns the sprinklers on in the riding ring and all the kids run around getting wet in their clothes and boots.
Then they sit down for a snack all completely soaked and covered in sawdust from head to toe.
It’s pure joy in my opinion.
And you can see it in their eyes. They never want to leave.
This, in a nutshell, seems exactly how a kid’s summer should be.
I have such wonderful memories growing up on our hobby farm. We had a garden next to our barn and all I wanted was strawberries.
Picking fresh strawberries and eating them right there is pure bliss.
These Renova napkins are great for a 4th of July celebration.
