I love berries. For me, summer is all about berries. My kids love strawberries and blueberries and it’s not uncommon for them to be eaten entirely during a single sitting. You’ll look at their little faces and see a red or blue mustache, a happy sparkle in their eye and a sheepish grin when they see the empty container and I ask why I didn’t get any. If you love berries, fun and weekend outings as a family then we have an event you won’t want to miss. Skagit County is celebrating its 81st annual Berry Dairy Days this year June 15-17. The entire weekend will be full of strawberry shortcake, food, vendors, fireworks, parade, BBQ, outdoor movies, live music, car shows and even more!
A couple other fun tidbits you won’t want to miss:
There will be painted strawberry rocks hidden throughout Skagit County starting June 11th. Find one and get free strawberry shortcake at the booth.
The kidzone activities are making me wish I was a kid again.
- You’ll want to start planning your weekend of fun now because this is an event you won’t want to miss! Just for fun and to get you inspired, here are 4 of my most favorite Berry recipes!
I keep things pretty simple with this. Buy lemonade. Add Strawberries. Blend with ice. Sit in the background with your feet up watching the kids run around the yard while you relax. Bliss.
I love me some shortcake with strawberries and whipped cream.
Strawberry Mango Dessert
This is another really really easy one. Chop up some strawberries. Chop up some mangos. Combine in a bowl. Top with whipped cream and mini chocolate chips. YUM.
