Strawberries are hands down my favorite fruit. I like different flavor pancakes but if you give me a choice of syrups or sauces I will always go with strawberry over anything else. It just feels right to me- or maybe I’m just a little strawberry crazed. I’m going to chalk it up to all the homemade strawberry jam my mom made growing up. It spoiled me and now I always want strawberries!
We like to do a big breakfast whenever my hubby is home on the weekends and that usually involves pancakes and IHOP style eggs, potatoes o’ brien, smoothies like mint chocolate chip or cherry pie, and bacon or sausage and some strawberry sauce.
What is your preference- fruit sauce or regular syrup? Do you like to make something special on weekends?
And if you can’t get enough strawberries try my nothing but strawberries Fresh Strawberry Pie.
