Sometimes the week just gets out of control and it becomes quickly clear that you are no longer winning the battle. And that’s ok. That’s when you throw together a little getaway in a bowl, a little something that makes your weeknight a little easier.
In walks Strawberries and Whipped Cream…
Just take a minute to appreciate the simplicity. You need 2 ingredients (ok maybe 4), but given that it’s summer, you might already have one of those in your fridge. I threw this together a couple of weeks ago on a work night when both B and I needed a little pick-me-up after dinner.
Go forth. Enjoy. Gussy it up for friends, because this would be excellent with some mint or basil, (or don’t and eat it all yourself — I’ve definitely done that)
Strawberries, cut into quarters
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla together until just stiff peaks form (or use any other whipped topping that you would prefer). Place some strawberries in the bottom of your serving vessel. Cover with whipped cream. Add more strawberries. Eat all of it and feel better about your week.
