News you can use: Strawberries!

It's a slow news day, but this should set your heart racing if you didn't already know it: Arkansas strawberries are in.

I bought a couple of quarts grown near Cabot at Terry's yesterday. Later, I got a Boulevard Bread e-mail saying they had organic Arkansas berries for $5.50 a quart. Our first ones of the season weren't the best ever, but still plenty good with a little whipped cream and sugar.

What, you ask, does the picture above have to do with strawberries? Nothing. It's just more red food, the boiled crawfish I mentioned that I  enjoyed in Beijing. They were the fattest, sweetest crawfish I've eaten and I've eaten a few pounds. They also were as spicy as any I've had in Louisiana, though from an entirely different sort of spice.
