Hello everyone from Ten Gables Cottage, It is a very rainy day today here in South Florida. I awoke to the sounds of crashing thunder and lightening, and rain was hitting the windows hard! It soon settled down into a very rainy day, but brightened up somewhat and has just rained steadily all day. We certainly need this rain, as we are in a drought, the worse one in 80 years for this time of year. After it brightened up a bit, I decided to go to the market, as I really needed some staples. The first thing I saw was a big display of strawberries from Plant City, Florida, famous for delicious strawberries. So of course, I had to buy some. Yum! They are beautiful and sweet and juicy!
I am once again on a diet, or at least trying to avoid sugary desserts like cake and cookies, so I thought I would just make a jello dessert, using strawberry jello, finely diced and mashed strawberries, crushed pineapple, and banana. With just a small dab of Cool Whip (we won't even THINK whipped cream), I think this will appease my sweet tooth and be a fine dessert tonight.
Off it goes into the fridge to get firm and off I go to enjoy painting in the studio, listening to the gentle rain outside. Such a COZY day!
