Fun in the Strawberry Patch

Today, Rob and I had the rare combination of a free day and good weather so we decided to take a day trip out to Eastern Long Island to visit a pick your own strawberry patch. I had never picked strawberries before but they are one of my favorite fruits and I thought the outing would be fun and possibly yield a photo opportunity or two for shots like  these:

Fresh Strawberries

By the end of the afternoon, we had 2 quarts of fresh picked strawberries, a couple of photos, and two mild sunburns.

We also stopped by some road-side farm stands to pick up some fresh asparagus, which Rob used to make this. It was  our first attempt at cooking something with shrimp in it.  Sauteed fresh asparagus is surprisingly fragrant and insanely flavorful! The shrimp was a little spicy for my taste (with both ginger and sesame oil) but I think if we adjust a few things here or there, and throw it over some pasta, we will have a dish that I could eat almost every day.

And now, if you will excuse me, the Tony Awards are on and I get to end this wonderful day geeking out over Broadway musicals. Talk to you soon!

About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
