We've been reading Blueberries for Sal on repeat lately. Kuplink, kuplank, kuplunk! is the refrain of berries in a bucket that causes a shriek of giggles on each reading. We attempted to duplicate the fun by doing our own picking and strawberry fields are plentiful in our neck of the woods.
It was wonderful to pick and use our bounty. With countless recipes to try, we opted for one with the greatest ease- a strawberry shortcake trifle. The layers are pound cake, whipped cream, strawberries and an extra special layer of whipped cream that is pink due to mashing a few strawberries and adding powdered sugar. Easy peasy and so delicious.
