At the risk of making you green with envy...
At the risk of having people show up at my door for food tomorrow night...
At the risk of causing you to abandon your diet...

Please make time to enjoy these seasonal delights. 
You MUST make it a priority, because your time is limited. 
For the next month, eat these foods until you can't stand to have another bite,
because it will be another year before you get to partake again.

Wishing these came from my own patch rather than the grocery store:

Now this is REAL strawberry shortcake:

Strawberry Shortcake
mix together:
2 c. flour
3/4 t. salt
1 T. baking powder
3 T. sugar
then add and cut in with pastry blender:
1/2 c. margarine
make a hole and add:
1 egg
1/2 c. milk

Sir with fork until just blended. (Really, don't stir too much.) Drop onto cookie sheet.
Bake for 12 minutes at 450 degrees, until they are golden brown.

To serve:  Crumble shortcake into a bowl, pour mashed/sugared strawberries over the top, then pour on milk (whole is yummiest) or half & half.  Prepare to experience pure delight. 

--> Ellyn thinks strawberry shortcake can be a dietary staple because 4 food groups are represented:  bread, fruit, dairy, and sugar.  So does my mother, who taught my family and I to eat this three times a day during strawberry season.  Thanks for raising me right, Mom.
