This week’s MotD theme: Tis the Season for Strawberries

These clever and sweet strawberry Christmas trees come to us from Julie of Lovely Little Kitchen. Along with the delightful image she also provides the instructions on how to make them.

About herself she states:

Though I have no formal culinary training, my mom always let me join her in the kitchen. I have always loved cooking and baking. I can still remember, as a young girl, creating my very first recipe. I had added a can of cream of chicken soup to my Ramen noodles. At the time, I thought this was absolutely genius! Not exactly a blog worthy recipe today, but you’ve got to start somewhere.

Check out more of her superb recipes via her blog site.

Why strawberries (a delightful summer fruit) as the focus for a winter season theme? Well I originally chose “goodies” as the theme to cover all types of holiday treats. While searching the interweb, I found a ton of potential MotD images with strawberries being used in many fun and different ways. So much so, that I felt compelled to showcase them all week instead of just one day. Enjoy!

Inspiration for Today

From The Practical Herbalist:

Success, as strawberry teaches us, requires proper preparation of one’s self. How could she sustain so many at once if she weren’t properly prepared? Her habit of emerging early in spring to blossom and fruit at the very beginning of the season speaks to her preparation, so quickly does she shuck off her winter’s sleep in exchange for early spring’s fertile rush.

How prepared are we for 2017? It’s only 15 days away 🙂
