Strawberry season here in Northern Ontario doesn’t last long – only about 2 to 3 weeks so we pick as many as we can and of course eat as many as we can. Strawberry sauce, strawberry lemonade, strawberry milkshakes and Strawberry Oatmeal Squares. Strawberry Oatmeal Squares are a yummy way to use these beautiful berries. At first glance this looks like a delicious dessert, but I think this is a wonderful healthy breakfast (without the ice cream that is). Large flake oatmeal and berries- how much better could your breakfast be?
One of my favourite pies is Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, but it has to be made with fresh strawberries. Now by fresh I mean beautiful red ripe local strawberries. The strawberry season here in Ontario is short just 2-3 weeks and during that short time we eat a lot of strawberries. This year the first quart of strawberries was made into a Strawberry Rhubarb Pie as I still have not have not had my fill of rhubarb this year.
