Strawberries Everywhere

Strawberry season has been in full swing and right now they are plump and sweet. It's a perfect time to make a Strawberry Pie!

The original recipe called for "Wild" Strawberry jello, but it's no longer available. So here is my version.

Cast of characters includes -

Fresh Strawberries
Strawberry Jello (large package)
3 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup Sugar
1 1/2 cups water

Combine cornstarch, sugar and water. Cook over medium high heat - stirring constantly until thick and bubbly. Stir in 3/4 package Strawberry Jello and remove from heat. Let cool.

In a deep precooked pie shell, layer washed and hulled strawberries. Pour Jello mixture over strawberries making sure all the strawberries are covered. Refrigerate.

Serve with a dollop of Whipped Cream

Georgia Skies

Often when we travel, I tell my hubby the skies are speaking to us.

Storm clouds loom

Making our way out of Florida, leaving the heavy thunderstorms behind.

Large cumulus clouds take their shape above.

And of course we are being followed by our traveling cottage.

Butterfly Welcome

Another beautiful service painted by my late Mother in law.

Depression glass "Heritage" plates.

Lenox Butterfly dishes.

Years ago I purchased this stainless set from the Oneida outlet in Georgia. Living Quarters "Ashville." I love how they add elegance to any table.

Isn't this a great time to entertain friends and family?
