The amazing thing about living pretty much anywhere in California is (besides the sunshine) the strawberries. They are the very best from Ventura & Oxnard, but are usually very flavorful just about anywhere in Cali. Black berries are also delicious, and grow wild all over Northern California.
Anyway, my point in writing this post is that I was visiting a friend and asked if they wanted some berries. They politely said no thank-you, we don’t like to eat berries. You don’t like to eat berries?!?!? is what went through my mind. Well I’m here to declare that you’re right, you shouldn’t like to eat berries…you should LOVE to eat them. Berries are natures candy, and not only that, have lots of nutrients! They most always satisfy my sweet tooth craving. I used to be too cheap to buy them, but I’ve realized that it’s worth the few extra dollars they cost, and I can afford them if I take the Oreo’s out of my shopping cart. Plus they ALWAYS make good yogurt toppings.
So the next time you have a friend over, and they politely decline to eat your berries…just say to yourself, more for me!
