Happy Canada Day
We celebrated with some strawberries and cream, and shortly we will walk out to the park to watch fireworks.
No recipe needed, but note this well: use good little strawberries - stay away from the big fat California-style monstrosities, whether grown here or not *- and good whipping cream, preferably organic. Avoid, like the plague that they are, any so-called whipped cream that comes in a spray tin, or even worse (at least so far as flavour is concerned) any substance described as an "edible oil product."
* And sorrowful it is to say, they are being grown here more and more. FIGHT, PEOPLE, FIGHT! Fight for your right to eat REAL strawberries. Shun the "shippers". Get the "eaters".
