This summer seems like flying by. I’m not sure why I feel this way. Maybe I’m getting older? haha. But it’s true the older you get, the faster time goes by:-) Last week was a HOT, HOT week here in Ottawa. I think the heat waves really hit the eastern provinces/states. My girlfriends and I had a lovely get-together in the weekend. This is what we had for dessert! Strawberry Shortcake.
It was so good. The biscuit part was not sweet at all, neither was the whipped cream. The strawberries were only slightly sweetened. Due to this, I could taste the natural flavour of all three parts of the shortcake, which was great.
Also, it was monumental(?) because it was my first time trying shortcake. Now I have a standard to measure against all other shortcakes. I hope I could try other recipes this summer so that I can pick the best ones and make some for others.
