I’m going to be completely honest, there’s no recipe in this post. Just a quick thought. See, this evening after dinner I dropped by the grocery store with Mike. We were looking to rent a movie (they have one of those movie box rental thingies) and I needed more strawberries for this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe. We got the two things we need, but we also got…
A completely unholy amount of raspberries. Why, you ask? Because they were on sale, 10 for $10. I nearly wet myself I was so excited (ok, not really). A half pint container around here is usually $3-4, even this time of year! And boy, oh boy, do I have plans for these babies! A couple of them will go into another Raspberry Buttermilk Cake to take to my grandparents’ this weekend, a few of them will be given to my parents this weekend, maybe a couple to my grandparents, and Mike has very nicely asked for raspberry preserves, so I think I’ll use a few to make a small batch of preserves.
Or I might just eat them all straight out of the containers. I haven’t really decided.
If you live in the area of one, I got them at Schnucks. I think they’re only in Central Illinois and the St. Louis area, but I could be wrong. Also, the raspberry sale wasn’t advertised, so maybe it’s just the store by my apartment? Still, can’t hurt to check!
