Reigning In And Going ‘Small’

Published May 19, 2019 by tindertender

Yesterday I decided to drive to Hood River to pick strawberries. There was only one farm open for u-pick. When I arrived I was told there was a limit of four pints.

In a bit I’ll look for recipes, maybe make a strawberry pie and then jam from the remaining berries.

The drive through the Columbia River Gorge is always a pleasure. I thought of my step-father bringing my family here to finish our ‘raising’. He was a lot of things, and one thing I’m grateful to him for is the location he chose for us to live. The memories are something I will treasure, always.

I took the Historic Columbia River Highway on the way back to the city. What amazing scenery! I imagined what life must have been like before the area was so populated … before roads. What Peace these people must have had!

I stopped at the Woman’s Pavilion lookout and enjoyed a wonderful Wind Dance performed by Nature itself. I love my immediate area, and am quite happy with my choice to remain in it, rather than in the expansive world ‘out there’.

My Haven

UPDATE:

Just finished making my 100 mile, hand picked, strawberry pie. I LOVE this pie! 100 mile hand picked strawberry pie is the best!

I admit I used a pre-made crust, but what’s inside it was all me! 😊
