June Strawberries

June is not complete without at least one trip to our local strawberry farm.  We made the trek last week and enjoyed berry picking:

When we got home, we spent the afternoon in the kitchen creating strawberry masterpieces:

Sugar dipped strawberries

Strawberry and Almond Salad with Balsamic Vinegar Dressing

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Cupcake with Strawberry Buttermilk Frosting

Strawberry Milkshake
via this recipe
(We used vanilla ice cream instead of strawberry.)

Strawberry Dessert-A-Palooza!

We even attempted to turn some hard boiled eggs into strawberry lovelies using fresh beets as a dye per Martha's natural egg dying recipe.  It ended up turning our white eggs into brown eggs (which is especially funny since we normally buy brown eggs:)) instead of the pink we were hoping for.  Perhaps we left the eggs in too long?  I'm not sure, but the dye leaked into many of the eggs, and the egg white was nice and pink inside.  

Has anyone else gone strawberry picking yet?  Do you have any good strawberry recipes that you could recommend?
