May The 4th Be With You

How many times have you heard that phrase this morning? For me, three (radio is on). I laugh every time!

Love strawberries this time of year!! I am hoping to pick-your-own this weekend or next week. I can’t miss it this year! I want to make a strawberry pie! I made one in 2002 after strawberry picking – my first pie ever – and it was delicious!

The strawberries were featured over a bowl of yogurt with banana, Oh’s and Cville Cluster.

Yum! I can’t wait to pick-your-own strawberries this season! I live in IL and I don’t think they’ll be ready until the end of the month, but I can’t wait! I’ll likely end up going overboard and buy 15 pounds, but so worth it :) Have a great 4th!

It took a me a few minutes to realize that phrase is likely a star wars reference – I’m slow this morning!

it took me WAY too long to get that phrase…

I have never made a strawberry pie, or even a pie for that matter. My husband would really like it if I learn how to make a pie.

By the looks of the sky, I think that rain is in the forecast. That is okay, though, because we had a gorgeous day yesterday. But I wish we would have more consecutively sunny days in a row.

It’s pouring in Atlanta this morning and my son is supposed to have 8th grade day outside all afternoon. I’m hoping the sun makes an appearance soon! Enjoy your day Kath!

The strawberries really have been great. I want to go strawberry picking and select my own. I always say I’m going to do this but never do!

Morning Kath, so glad Karen felt a kick! Felt Jess’ baby kick for the first time yesterday. We went out to a Thai/sushi place last night and had an interesting conversation about raw fish and pregnancy; any thoughts?

13 KathEats May 4, 2012 at 8:45 am

Fun!

I would not eat raw fish because you don’t have to – you can have sushi with the cooked kind. That said, if I went to an Asian country right now, I might try it. But not here in the USA unless it’s a REALLY reputable restaurant.

Thanks! My sentiments exactly. She ordered a cooked roll (teriyaki shrimp) and we all breathed a sigh of relief :-) The restaurant is owned by a Top Chef, PM, and I think the chef’s name is Arnold Mint.

Oooh – any recommendations as to places where you can pick in NC?? I would love to do that!

16 KathEats May 4, 2012 at 8:44 am

I don’t remember the name, but it was in Mooresville

Love your linens! Where do you get them? Just anywhere? I was thinking I would go to a Goodwill…

Reply

23 KathEats May 4, 2012 at 8:44 am

Anywhere. This was my grandmother’s! Target has good tea towels too

Reply

24 mary @ minutespermile May 4, 2012 at 8:46 am

I looked at Target, but only in their placemat section- tea towels is a better bet! Thanks.

25 KathEats May 4, 2012 at 8:48 am

Tea towels are where it’s at!

That’s funny – I made my first pie in 2002 too! Mine was blackberry. There’s even a pic of me with it. Little did I know it would turn into a cooking obsession. :)

Sounds like a big day — so awesome to live in such an active community! Beautiful breakfast is making me hungry!!! Have a great time tonight :)

Kath, I’m sending this post to my husband. He thinks “May the 4th Be With You” is funny, too. I think I heard him say it several times this morning before he left for work.
The strawberries in your cereal bowl look delicious! Have a lovely day…and May the 4th be with you!

29 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles May 4, 2012 at 8:59 am

I am almost out of my homemade freezer strawberry jam…can’t wait for strawberry season too! Never made a strawberry pie…I will have to try that! Thanks for the idea! Speaking of rain…we had the most gianormous thunderstorm last night…thunder lightening and teaming rain. Woke up this morning to a thick fog and humidity…it’s like mother nature just turned on summer time! Believe me…I am not complaining!

30 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat May 4, 2012 at 8:59 am

I’m dying to get some strawberries at the market this weekend! Yours look delicious. As for the whole 4th-be-with-you thing, I think I’ve heard it at least 5 times this morning. Have a great day Kath!

Strawberries are the BEST!!! I love having them with breakfast!

Today is my son’s second birthday. He was “this close” to being named Jedi or Obi Wan, but we came to our senses ;)

Sounds like you have a fun friday ahead! So far I’m only at 2. If I was at work today, I’m pretty sure that’s ALL I would hear..

Reply

34 Chelsea @ Designs on Dinner May 4, 2012 at 10:02 am

Ha ha, I had to give in to the whole “May the 4th be with you as well.” I’ve never made a strawberry pie before, but it sounds delicious. Maybe a strawberry-rhubarb combo is in my future….A very happy Friday to you!

I can’t believe it’s Fridays After Five time of year…where did this past year go? It flew by!

Very clever title to this post. I don’t see how you come up with them again and again!

I just heard it on the radio! Not original!

What are cville clusters?

Granola from our bakery

41 Cindy Love Childers May 4, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Hey Kath! How do I get a hold of this Cville (Charlottesville?) Clusters. I googled it earlier today but didn’t find it. Is this just something y’all sell in your Bakery or can we buy it online? I would LOVE to try it! Cindy

Reply

42 KathEats May 4, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Yeah, it’s a granola we make at the bakery. We have sold them online via OpenSky at times, but it’s not something we can have on sale full time

43 kathleen @ the daily crumb May 4, 2012 at 10:48 am

i heard this so many times on the radio as well today! until they actually said “may the 4th be with you”, i had no idea why people were calling today star wars day. all makes sense now!

berries are so delicious right now!!!

What’s Brews with a View? I was planning on having dinner downtown and would love a beer before hand.

It’s at Second Street Gallery. $10 to get in and music and beer on the rooftop. GH is sponsoring with rolls + spreads!
