This weekend, I mostly vegged (and partly fruited. You'll see.) And it was about time! I got some (nightmare-free) sleep, played innumerable games of Scrabble, cleaned my bathroom, and had my parents over for Father’s Day.
The last one was a surprise, and so I didn’t have anything sweet to serve my dad (short of chocolate chips, which only belong in cookies. They are not candy and are certainly not edible on their own. That is just wrong.) I had to give him tea and baked chips and I was able to scrounge up a can of mixed nuts from which I had already eaten out the cashews. Sorry, Dad!
But I did drag myself up from the couch on Saturday afternoon to make a yummy strawberry-orange sauce to pour over yogurt or ice cream. For The Clever Cat's Sweet and Sassy Strawberry Sauce, see recipe:
- 2 lbs. frozen strawberries (cheap and easy. I guess you could use fresh, but why bother?)
- 1/4 c. Splenda
- Zest and juice of one Valencia orange (if you get some orange flesh in there while squeezing, that's also good)
- Pinch salt
