Grandma's Shortcake...not much better...

Mmmm....strawberry season is upon us.  Yesterday, my mother and I took an excursion to visit Schnormeier Gardens - a private gardens that they open to the public one week a year.  On the way there we stopped at a produce stand and I spent an exorbitant amount($4.50) on strawberries compared to my mother who got some at MCC($2.50) earlier in the week, but they were enjoyable on our trip.  Today, when I stopped by mom's she whipped up a pan of shortcake and cleaned strawberries, while I went on a run (and walk) at the Wilderness Center with Colonel Mustard.  When we returned home, we feasted on Strawberry Shortcake, there is just something about mom's strawberry shortcake that I just love.  Mmmm...Mmmm...good.
