I barely remember entering her contest, I think it was back in April after she attended the Poteet Strawberry Festival in Texas – Can you believe that? A strawberry festival in April? Up here in Ontario, Canada the local strawberry festival happens next weekend – the July 1st, Canada Day long weekend. The Whitchurch-Stouffville Strawberry Festival promises to provide family fun including comedy, BBQs, fireworks and of course strawberries. Believe it or not, I’ve never gone to a strawberry festival, so I look forward to packing both of my favourite men into the car, (maybe even our dog) and enjoying some local berries.
I will need to bring home a bunch of fresh berries too, because the prize pack included the Poteet Festival Taste of Texas cookbook. Packed with recipes for desserts as well as jams and salsas – I can’t wait to try some.
The package also included some raw honey. For those of you that don’t already know I love honey, and when I saw the label on the bottle, “Uncertain Farms”, I couldn’t help but look them up – would you eat something with that name on it without looking into it first?! Good marketing strategy if you ask me :) They are a family run farm in Texas that sells fresh produce and preserves – and their honey is delicious!
My littlest man is calling… So while the weather is great, get out there and enjoy your weekend :)
While you’re out, have your slow cooker prepare one of these tasty meals:
Thanks again Bonnie!
