We’re having a great summer for strawberries, there are so many, and there’s nothing like biting into a big, sweet strawberry that has been in the sun all day! I just love it!
Right now raspberries are getting just ripe and boy are they sweet & just tart enough. Those are one of my favourites field berries. I could do without their seeds, but then again, that’s part of it. I love to bite into a seed long after I’m done with the fruits as such, it just brings back enough tartness to remind me of how good those berries were. We went to the market today and bought a bunch of strawberries and raspberries, as well as some fresh sausages. Among our diverse selection we picked one made out of pork and raspberries. For dinner we had a selection of sausages: Inferno (really spicy), Port and White Pepper, and finally Chorizo. The best, in my taste, was the raspberry one; you could really taste the fruit. For dessert I’ve made a type of shortcake and mixed some strawberries & raspberries, just because I couldn’t decide which one I should use.
The smell in the house while it was baking was very nice and it tasted even better.
Earlier, Hubby made some margaritas. He was a bit generous on the tequila, as usual for his drinks. I wanted “Strawberry Margarita” so he threw in a bunch of fresh strawberries; it was delicious! I had two big glasses, and had to lie down for five to ten minutes, because everything was spinning. Good thing was, I couldn’t feel my back! What can I say, I’m a cheap date! Always have been, and probably always will be!
After dinner, I made my way to Notre-Dame to watch the fireworks. It was Australia’s turn. They were beautiful, the best so far this year, so many different patterns and colours, gorgeous and lit up the sky so nicely... I did manage to take a few shots.
I also took this one of the Clock Tower, in the Old Port, with the full moon, and the Montreal Casino in the back.
It was a beautiful night to end a very sweet day!
