A Refreshing and Delicious Summertime Treat

The strawberries at my local grocery have been particularly nice lately,
and I could not pass these beauties up.  I rinsed them in this cute little
berry strainer.  Then I cut off the tops, sliced them into a bowl, sprinkled
a bit of sugar on top and put them in the fridge until after supper.

The sugar draws some of the juices out of the berries, leaving just
enough to make a little sauce.  I layered vanilla ice cream and then 
berries into my Mama's vintage parfait glasses.  This was one of
Mama's favorite summer desserts.  If you don't have parfait glasses,
you could do this in large goblets too, or just add the berries on top
of a couple of scoops of ice cream.  However you serve it, you will 
love it!

Later this week, I will be sharing my old fashioned carrot and raisin
salad.  It's a vintage way to get out of a salad rut.  Stay cool y'all!

  1. Strawberries and ice cream is a favorite of mine and I love the glasses you served it in!

  2. And everything tastes better in a lovely parfait glass...even something as simple as strawberries and ice cream. I just may be trying this tonight!


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
