Last week Mr E asked if I'd make him a slow Guinness Stew over the weekend, so on Saturday morning I set myself to the task at hand.
Once I'd browned off the beef, onions, and garlic I added the Guinness, spices, and beef stock to the pan before tipping it all into my slow cooker for a nice eight hour braise.
Still in my apron, and the kitchen a mess anyway, I decided to make a Strawberry Shortcake for dessert.
This is a recipe I've made for about 25 years and one I knew my daughter Blossom loved, so I rang and asked if she and her DB would like to come visit for dinner that night (and bring their little Cully May for nana and pop cuddles!). Without hesitation, she said yes.
I shared this recipe on the blog many years ago but as it's such a good one I thought you may like to download it to add to your own recipe files.
My good friend Fee is an avid fan of this recipe too. From the first time I shared it on the blog she's made it a regular treat for her family.
But the strawberry love doesn't stop there!
Fee has also become an avid fan of my Elegant Strawberry Pincushion pattern/tutorial...
In fact, she's spent the past few days making a few of them, all deliciously elegant.
Here's one, but if you'd like to see them all pop over here to her blog for inspiration and more strawberry eye candy...
What have you made recently from strawberries?
