So, I’ve been trying to eat more fruits and vegetables, yes?  Well, the people who are supplying Sam’s Club with strawberries are making it easy-peasy.  Look at the size of these berries!

They’re huge – almost the size of small apples! And they smell great! And they are red all the way through! And they are so sweet! Mmmm…. I eat two for breakfast and two with dinner and I think I’ve practically fulfilled all my plant consumption for the day.

Wait, if I tell you how good they are, you will go buy them all and I won’t have anymore and I’ll grow to resent you and our friendship will end and I might have to hunt you down and take my strawberries from your fridge!!!……

Whoa. Sorry for the paranoid rant.  Um, they might be using something unnatural on these strawberries.

    Those are big enough to carve! Wait… is that a thing?
    (searching the internet)
    Yes. Yes, it is a thing.

    It’s ok. Lots of us can’t even get into Sams. Your strawberries are reasonably safe.

    How much chocolate do you need for dipping?

    Good for you Lauren! I think your strawberry plan is great! I definately need to sneak more fruits & veggies into my diet.

    And it just so happens I brought a banana to work today. Hopefully I will not just watch it rot on my desk.

      Ha! You read my mind! I thought how nice of me it would be to bring some of these huge strawberries to share with the children after reading this, but then my stomach got all selfish. Maybe next week.
