One of the benefits to me this week is that I don't have to cook dinner. Yep. Monday - Friday this week a couple of wonderful ladies at our church are preparing dinner for the VBS workers and their families. I can't tell you what a blessing this is. Saves me time. Saves us grocery money. Makes my life easy.
It also means there's a chance that any fresh produce in our fridge may spoil before I get it used. That was nearly the case with the strawberries.
Rather than letting them go to waste, I made a batch of strawberry syrup when I got home tonight. It's cooling right now and i will package it for the freezer before bed. I think Saturday breakfast will be waffles and strawberry syrup. Doesn't that sound good? I reduced the sugar by 1/4 c. but after a taste-test, I've made a note to reduce it by another 1/4 c. next time. It's still very, very sweet.
