Strawberry Sandwiches

In the spring and summer our meals tend to shift and change. We are busy in the yard and don't have time to prepare elaborate meals. After working and playing outside the last thing we want is a hot meal from the crock-pot or oven. We are always on the prowl for some new recipes, especially ones that use produce from the garden. This one was such a hit with the kids, I just had to share it.  (notice the little baby hands in the picture, just waiting to grab the sandwich)

This I have to try! Never would have thought to put strawberries on a sandwich.

That sounds delicious! I'll have to put it to the test. A favorite summertime strawberry meal on our homestead is to mix up fresh spinach and chopped strawberries with yogurt(I like Greek honey but whatever works for you). Simple, nourishing, refreshing and delicious.

How smart - it makes me wish our strawberries would grow a little faster!!

I would never have thought of this. Looks good, but I'll have to try it and make sure!

I will try this. It sounds great! I just had my first tomato sandwich of the year. It was made from organic, heirloom tomatoes picked right off my vines this afternoon. The flavor is untouchable and what a wonderful sense of satisfaction that I grew them myself. Thank God! I have found out I can't grow anything without him.

Bless the Lord!

Love this! Can't wait to try. Unfortunately I will have to buy some strawberries, squirrels ate our strawberry harvest! This post made me wonder what strawberries and chocolate grilled sandwiches would be like? hmmm....sounds like I'll need to get a lot of strawberries!
