"Strawberry Shortcake, Huckleberry Pie! V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!" Anybody remember that old cheer? The flavor of these summer fruits is just so yummy, and since I don't grow strawberries I yielded to their siren call at the grocery store. The packages of shortcakes were just sitting there staring us shoppers in the face as we walked in, and although you all surely know I Much Prefer To Make It Myself, this is one of those times where I just wanted to eat it, not make it. So, I am thankful for the small mercies of ready-made shortcakes and low-fat (if frozen and not quite pretty enough for company) whipped cream.
But did I get my fill of strawberries? Oh, no. In fact, I was delighted to see this Snapple Strawberry White Tea at the grocery store because it's another, even easier way to enjoy the taste of strawberries.
I'm still into "refrigerator brewing" my tea this summer, so I made a small pitcher full to keep on hand. I also tried it hot, and it is delicious that way as well. Strawberries and cream, anyone?
