Promises and strawberries

I made you all a promise: I was going to make Misfit's dessert and tell you all about it. So, yesterday I went to the store to get all the other ingredients I needed. I wouldn't need the apple jelly for the strawberry shortcakes (which I wanted to make) and concentrated on the chocolate etc.

Well, I had everything in my little basket. The sugar, the chocolate, the cream. The only thing missing were the strawberries. Which the supermarket did have. But paying €3,49 for 500 grams (about US$4,39 for about a pound) is not something I am willing to do. Unless I live on the South Pole. Which I don't!

So, I have to break my promise. No dessert today. At least, not the strawberry shortcakes! Sorry...


  1. I agree with you on that one! If it's not on sale I'm not buying it!

  2. And they often don't even taste like strawberries.


Any weighty (and not so weighty) comments are welcome!
