Happy Canada Day!

Last weekend we bought a flat of strawberries from the market. Three quarters of them are mashed and frozen, ready for making strawberry rhubarb jam in the fall. My husband made Strawberry Shortcake with the rest of them. Here is the recipe; make it if you get the chance. I think it would be great with raspberries too, which are starting to ripen in our backyard~ I can’t wait!

The weather couldn’t be more beautiful for Canada Day. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (Will and Kate) arrived in Canada yesterday, and today they are here in Ottawa to celebrate Canada Day. We will be staying close to home today, rather than braving the crowds downtown.  I imagine they are bigger today than any other year!

Have a great Canada Day, and Happy 4th of July if you are in the US this weekend!
