Strawberry Shortcake

Did you know that June 14 {yesterday} is {was} National Strawberry Shortcake Day? It also happens to be Flag Day and the birthday of the United States Army. Happy 237th birthday! What better way to celebrate than with a strawberry shortcake?

Getting Settled

Dan and I have been moved into our new home for over a month now and we could not be happier. All the boxes are unpacked, save two full of picture frames that we will hang after we paint in a couple of weeks! Here are a few recent highlights!

The kitchen is of course one my favorite spots! I love the warmth of the cabinet and floor finishes contrasted with the bright stainless steel. This kitchen has already churned out numerous goodies and treats, and there are certainly many more to come!

Strawberry Sherbet

So much has happened over the last month, and I began this post in an attempt to describe it all. As I started to list the highlights, I decided that all these very exciting changes in my life deserve more attention than a mere bullet leading up to an ice cream recipe. Over the next few weeks, I promise to share more of our new house, neighborhood, and food adventures.

But for now, I am going to start off summer with a recipe for strawberry sherbet made with ripe local strawberries, which are beautiful and abundant this time of year. The two baskets I picked up from Shenot Farm Market in Wexford last weekend were bright red, juicy, and perfect for this sherbet.
