Foodie Friday – 10 AWESOME STRAWBERRY RECIPES YOU HAVE TO TRY NOW

Food___Berries_and_fruits_and_nuts_Strawberry_and_basket_037084_So.. we meet again, Friday foodies.. how was your week? We’ve had some lovely weather here in Puglia. I wore my sandals for the first time this season! It may sound strange for you non-Italians, but unlike other populations, Italians are a bit reluctant to strip down at the first signs of heat. They know jolly well that temperatures are going to soar up to 40°C during the summer, so for them 25°C is nothing. I on the other hand, can’t stand heat of any kind, so I strip down fairly early compared to my fellow patriots (must be my English side kicking in). Well, enough with the weather, let’s talk about food. Today’s post is all about strawberries and this is because I, personally, can’t get enough of them and also they’re selling like hot cakes here where I live, so I thought I could share with you some of the recipes I’ve found online.

[ITA] Chi si rivede! Come state foodies del venerdì? Come è andata la vostra settimana? Qui in Puglia abbiamo avuto del tempo davvero bello. Ho indossato i sandali per la prima volta, dall’anno scorso! Potrà sembrare strano ai lettori non-italiani, ma a differenza di altre popolazioni, gli italiani non sono tipi da spogliarsi ai primi segni di caldo. Sanno bene che le temperature sfiorano tranquillamente i 40°C durante l’estate, quindi per loro 25°C – registrati in UK questa settimana – sono NIENTE. Io, d’altro canto, non sopporto il caldo, quindi giro “alla nuda”, come si dice qui, abbastanza presto rispetto ai miei compaesani (dev’essere il mio lato inglese). Beh, basta parlare del tempo, parliamo di cibo. Il post di oggi è tutto sulle fragole e questo è perchè io personalmente non ne riesco proprio a farne a meno e qui ne vendono ad ogni angolo delle strade. Ho pensato così di condividere con voi alcune delle ricette che ho trovato online.
