the weather has been gorgeous and as soon as summer hits, we love to take motorcycle rides through the wisconsin farmlands. and the other day we were lucky enough to find a roadside stand selling organic strawberries!
so of course we pulled over a bought a carton!
and made these delicious scones later that evening! i love to experiment with different fillings whenever i bake so we made some with strawberries and almonds, some with fresh chives from the garden (mixed in with a little cheddar cheese), and some with door county cherries.
my favorite was definitely the strawberry almond straight from the over with a bit of cream and strawberries sliced on top.
and since the weather has been so sweet, we had to concoct a sweet strawberry drink too! this one was made with strawberries, a pinch of sugar, and vanilla bean…all mashed together and then pushed through a metal strainer, so you get a beautiful thick juice. i added a bit of ice then poured in some seltzer water…completely refreshing! and just perfect for summer!
