The First of the Strawberry Creations

Where did the day go?

I know where it went; I did not get out of bed until 8:30.  I spent some time cleaning and slicing strawberries, then made breakfast.

By the time the dishes were done, I had putzed around on the internet for a while, and I realized just how lazy I was being, it was 11:30!  I had walking to do!

I am training for the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for a Cure.  You walk 60 miles in 3 days, an average of 20 miles a day.   Today, I needed to walk 14.

4 hours.  Gone.

I know that The Universe will reward me in some way shape or form.  Hopefully by allowing me to complete the 3 Day injury and pain free!

Today was not pain free; word to the wise.  Do not pick strawberries then walk 14 miles.  I could barely take my shoes off when I was done!

By the time I got home, cleaned up,  a smoothie made and enjoyed, I still had a trip to the grocery store.  Despite my best intentions, it was 5:30 before I got home from the store.

As easy as it would have been to make the strawberry arugula salad I planned on yesterday, I needed something with a lot more protein for dinner.  A rotisserie chicken and lots of greens later, a salad was planned.

So, what did I make?

This strawberry rhubarb crisp!

I made a few changes.  I used 3 cups of rhubarb, 3 cups of strawberries, and I only made half the crisp.  Most crisps have too much crisps anyway.

Ha!  That was funny. I kill myself sometimes.

The crisp is my favorite part, but I only had 1/2 cup of brown sugar left.  C'est la vie.  Half the crisp it was!

I probably should taste it before I finish this post, but I need to finish this post before I taste it!

The approximate region my spoon will dive into shortly!

Such a lovely color!  Wish you could smell this!

Here are some stats!
