Sign of a spring

Not only a green leaves. Not a flowers. Not even a warmth in the breeze in the morning.
But strawberries…

Spring has come :happy:

  19. qlue says:

Cool, you are celebrity then :DAngeliki, I am glad you recognised them. They are from your graden :whistle:Aadil :lol:Linda, I like them in any version :chef: But, as I said, I prefer cherries :chef:

  21. Furie says:

    I got better.

  22. L2D2 says:

    I like fresh strawberries, especially dipped in chocolate, milk or white. And I love the fresh strawberry cake my mom used to make. Otherwise, I don't care for strawberry flavor.

    :lol:you better be careful,my dad guards his strawberries and his lemon tree like a they are gold! :)I do not think our strawberries in the garden are ready yet… they are usually ripe by late July πŸ™‚

  24. Stardancer says:

    I have just discovered that I have wild strawberries growing in my yard. Kind of exciting to have a fruit I didn't even know I had.:yes:

  25. raniakasim says:

    today is April /25it is the second month of Spring and strawberry's season has almost ended the climate is somehow hot here but i think in Siberia there is no Spring i imagine the climate of ur home is so cold and there is always snow , just only snow

  26. qlue says:

    :sst:. Serbia and Siberia are two different places. :left:.

  27. studio41 says:

    the are looking good… πŸ™‚

  28. gdare says:

    Mik, I am glad :DAngeliki, I will just wait for them to grow :whistle: And lemons, too :whistle:Star, wild strawberries are the best, the most intensive taste :chef:Rania, I live in Serbia, not in Siberia πŸ˜† Take a look here:, thanks πŸ™‚

  29. gdare says:

    They tasted even better :up:

  30. raniakasim says:

    so sorry I beg your pardon

  31. thaodp says:

    :chef: :chef:

  32. PainterWoman says:

    Love the photo Darko. I like that little dish too. I have an odd assortment of small dishes I've bought at the second hand store. If I have people over, I serve desserts in them.Strawberries are delicious on salads with baby greens, walnuts and feta cheese. That's about the only time I eat them. Or as a fruit salad mixed with other fruit and also as a jam on toast. For me, they are a bit tart to eat alone.

  33. thaodp says:

    hum, this time… Ok. I can have some more later :p

  34. PainterWoman says:

    Baby greens are just different types of just sprouted lettuce, spinach and other green vegetables mixed together. In other words, all the greens are picked when quite small before they are fully grown.

  35. gdare says:

    Ah, ok. So what is the recipe for that? I would like to try it :yes:

  36. gdare says:

    Mit :yes:Pam, thanks I will try it when our strawberries comes to open markets :chef:

  37. PainterWoman says:

    The recipe is not too fancy. Just a mixture of the baby greens, a tablespoon of chopped walnuts, a tablespoon of dried cranberries, three cut up strawberries, about a fourth cup crumbled feta cheese (more or less if you like it…I do). Sometimes I add one cut up Roma tomatoe and some grilled chicken pieces. Usually I use Poppyseed dressing to top it off but use a Balsamic Vinagerette dressing sometimes too.I first had this salad in a restaurant and loved it so made a note of all the ingredients to make it at home.

  38. gdare says:

    Rania, it is ok, no need to be sorry. It sounded funny though :DMit, I said only a half :knight: :PPam, with feta cheese? Wow, I never tried that before πŸ’‘ What are baby greens?

  39. PainterWoman says:

    It's a really good and healthy salad. A correction, the salad I had at the restaurant had bleu cheese which was very good. But the first time I made it at home, I only had feta. I might even try a mixture of both cheeses next time. Now this is really making me hungry for the salad. I think I'll take myself out to lunch.

  40. gdare says:

    :lol:I just ate a bowl of salad made of tomatoes, feta cheese and olive oil :chef:

  41. PainterWoman says:

    Now I'm really going to lunch.

  42. qlue says:

    :yuck:@ the oil!:chef:@ the tomato/feta

  43. AnitaMargita says:

    @ Darko&Mit-I just thought to take the plate, but you two stopped quarreling. :p :lol:@ Pam-Hello and thanks for the recipe a lot! πŸ™‚

  44. PainterWoman says:

    Hi Anita and you're welcome. I go out to eat probably 2 or 3 times a week for soup and salad. Usually I just spend under $10 but then if I order a glass of wine too that adds 6 or 7 more dolars to my bill. That's why I try to make note of ingredients and duplicate something at home. I can buy a whole bottle of wine for 6 or 7 dollars and have it last several meals!

    if you told me,I would have brought the fresh baked bread! delicious and healthy too!

  46. MirabelaTM says:

    These strawberries looks tasty πŸ™‚ I saw in a food store some from Turkey but they are too expensive.

  47. sanshan says:

    mmm that salad sounds good…I'd like to try that.

  48. gdare says:

    Aadil, I guess you don`t like olive oil :lol:Ana, ok, you may have a plate but no strawberries :PPam, I don`t go to restaurants as I used to; on the other hand there is always a bottle of red wine in my house :DAngeliki, that would be a real treat :chef:Mira, this price is insane; I will be really happy when their price drops down to 0,3 – 0,4 eur for kilogram :chef:San, believe me it is excellent :chef:

  49. qlue says:

    Not fond of olives in general, but it's the tom&cheese in oil that I don't much like in the above scenario. :p.Add some sliced onion, lettuce, carrots and fresh (uncooked) string beans. Then, add a few drops of balsamic vinegar, about a table spoon of Italian herb mix (or your prefered blend) a pinch or two of salt, a pinch or two of fine pepper, put into a jar with the oil and shake well. :up:.Then it's a salad. :D,

  50. gdare says:

    πŸ˜† We have something similar as usual salad in Serbia. But I like that one I mentioned, too. I like salads, in general.On a second thought, I like to eat. A lot :left::chef:
