Don't Be Sad 🍓
Things are getting strange here in Club Sayonara. Bill is home All. The. Time. and I’m fine with that. There’s the occasional pounding on the floor, which is directly above where I sit on the TV-room couch. His office chair must weigh 1,200 pounds as it scrapes across the floor. For me, a person who has been working from home and boat and houseboat, I see no difference in my day-to-day. However, our store of fresh things is dwindling and we’ll soon need some reinforcements.
Today’s recipe is for the sad strawberries in plastic on the shelf. Harsh, transparent plastic and there’s some furry-furries on a few of their bums. I’ve been reading way too many kitty-cat tweeters on the twitter.
So, I give you Sad, Saucy Strawberries for your sweet needs.
Sad, Saucy Strawberries
- Wash and save all the bits of the strawberries that perhaps you wouldn’t pop into your mouth but which can be stirred over a low heat and their softness is no longer a problem.
- Place the strawberries in a heavy-bottomed pot on the stove and keep it on low. If you’re short on juice, add whatever you might have on hand – orange, cranberry, etc.
- You can also throw in any jellies you have on the edges of things; the ones that were there last season and which have rinded the inside of the jar … pour the warming strawberries directly into the jar until you can spatula it clean.
- If you have no other jelly or juice, a teaspoon of honey or sugar/sweetener can be added, depending on your own health situation.
See? Don’t you feel better already? You’ve just saved something else on the edge of extinction, even while you’re not thinking about such things at all.
If you don’t feel like cooking, but still want to keep cheery, I highly recommend cleaning anything that catches your eagle eye. You’re home in the sunshine, so watch what it highlights and have your cleaning equipment ready for attack. Might as well wash every surface you can reach, while you still can reach. 🐔
