Menu Plan, Cleaning List and Oven Dried Strawberries

Oven Dried Strawberries

Hi friends! This week we are super busy preparing for the 4th of July weekend festivities and I am planning our mini-family vacations as well as spending tons of quality time with my sons.  We are really excited about trying new recipes and eating more healthy every day.  Having our youngest son participate in meal prep has been wonderful way to get him to eat those greens.  It has taken more time than I care to admit but I should get mommy points for never giving up!   I am  also sharing a fun video on How to Make Dried Strawberries and I simply cannot wait to give it a try.  The photos look fantastic on line and the video is short and sweet and the best one I could find. I will post on Facebook our results and I hope you give this healthy family treat a try as well.

Now on the to planning!

  1. Hi, Pam!

    Enjoy your 4th of July! It sounds like you have good plans in the works 🙂

    I’ve not made sliced oven dried strawberries, but I’ve made whole roasted ones and they are delicious!!! I ate a whole quart in one sitting because I couldn’t stop eating them! lol!

    Hope yours turn out just as good!

    1. Yum, whole almost sounds better. I might try that first to get my kiddo to eat some and then do the sliced to add to granola or cake batter.
