Strawberries and Dumplings

June 13, 2013 10:58 pm

It’s a cool, breezy June evening. I’m out on our beautiful deck with two of my loveliest girlfriends with wine (and strawberry andre) and gossip and surrounded by herbs, flowers, and strawberry plants (and catgrass). Could it get any better than that? Maybe. We also had this:

strawberry dumplings

Oh yeah, Glenn had some too.

Thank you, my favorite food blog, for this easy-to-make foolproof strawberries and dumplings that were super good even though I was a little tipsy and couldn’t figure out how big a golf ball would be.

I followed the recipe to the best of my ability, with one change. I had no milk, so subbed 1/4c buttermilk and 1/4c heavy cream. Because of the heavy cream, I only added 1+ tbsp butter (what I had left in the fridge!).

Oh yeah, we also had dinner. Goat cheese and lemon and spinach pasta, again. It was good… but not strawberries and dumplings.

It might be cool here in Wisconsin, but it sure is summertime! Three cheers for good friends and good food!
