Just wanted to share one of my favorite summer desserts.  

Cut up about four or five strawberries in small chunks or slices and put it in a bowl.  Add about a tablespoon of lemon juice and a tablespoon or two of sugar.  Mix and let settle for ten minutes.  The sugar will draw out the strawberry juices and the lemon will give the sweetness a nice tart counterpart.  Sometimes I just eat it like this, but on special days, I like to add plain vanilla ice cream.  You can also use this strawberry mix on top of pancakes, or maybe as a filling for a crepe…go nuts!  It’s delicious and refreshing!

Note:  I’ve heard of people using vinegar or wine instead of lemon juice.  That’s on you to try; I like the citrus!  Enjoy!
