A happy birthday giveaway

Today is my birthday!

But I have a gift for you! And, it involves my favorite fruit ever.

Here’s a not so subtle hint…

Yummmm, strawberries…

I made this smoothie sans bananas because I have more strawberries than I know what to do with.

That’s a lie.  I  know exactly what to do with them.

Open mouth.

Insert strawberry.




Anywho, remember how I made a healthier strawberry shortcake using some of the strawberries California Giant Berry Farms sent me?  Well now you have the chance to win your own gargantuan shipment of fresh strawberries.

You can get up to two entries by doing the following things.

1. Answer one of two questions: What’s your favorite thing to make with strawberries or what’s  your favorite type of birthday cake?

2. Tweet this giveaway — “@Foodiefresh is giving away a huge shipment of fresh strawberries!” And also link back to this post.

I’ll pick a winner on Saturday morning.  This is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada only.

I’m sorry my foreign friends. 🙁

Something is missing here.

There.  That’s much better.

Have a lovely day!

    I know you said ‘answer one’ but I am horrible at following directions.

    -What’s your favorite thing to make with strawberries?

    • Thanks Katy! It was so good to see you last night. I’m sorry we didn’t get to hang out afterwards. My guest wanted to chow and plus Brad wasn’t feeling so great so we parked ourselves at a table the whole night. Looking forward to seeing you again at another running group. 🙂

  22. My favorite thing to make strawberries with is smoothies! I love to add them into a blender with a banana, milk, and yogurt! Sooo good! : )

  23. Kathryn Sullivan

    My favorite kind of birthday cake is actually Key Lime Pie- maybe it’s because my birthday is in December and all I crave is light, fruity sweets and warm weather!

    • For one of my birthdays, my grandmother had my great aunt, who makes THE BEST cheesecakes, make me a key lime cheesecake. It was soooo good! Plus, they’re easy to freeze so I just cut little slivers at a time and enjoyed it the whole month.

  24. Happy Birthday!!! I love strawberries just by themselves the best but I also love them in smoothies and on salads.

  25. Kassi

    My favorite thing to make with strawberries is… strawberries? I think I like eating them fresh and raw the best. Sometimes with other fruit like bananas or kiwi. When they’re getting more soft/too ripe I like to make smoothies. I love them in spinach salad, too.

  26. Erin M.
