Weekend links and photos: Eat Seasonal edition

On a recent morning walk we stumbled upon a patch of wild strawberries. Later that afternoon we drove by our local strawberry U-pick and noticed it was doing brisk business.

Strawberry fever is upon us, which is why half the recipes in my link love feature the sweet berry. Here’s what the #EatSeasonal ladies came up with for June. Inspiring as always!

I plan to remake this fresh strawberry pie and this ice cream cake soon, too. Good thing we have a few birthdays coming up in July.

The garden and its produce is featured predominately in this weeks favourite photos:

garlic scape pizza

For pizza Friday…Garlic scape and new zucchini white pizza with scape pesto. We made good use of those scapes!

Now we’re off for a three day camping trip where I plan to (mostly) unplug. You can catch the occasional photo of our adventures if you follow me on Instagram.

Have a wonderful weekend, all!
