While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Leave your raspberry beret in the drawer today - June 14 is National Strawberry Shortcake Day.
Just to avoid any confusion, we're not talking about a cute little girl who lives in a strawberry cake and wears a pink bonnet. This dessert combines sweet biscuits, whipped cream and macerated strawberry happiness (read: sliced strawberries coated with sugar that surrender their juices and make a sweet, sweet sauce).
To make traditional strawberry shortcakes, you halve the biscuits, ladle on some strawberry magic and top it with whipped cream. Cap it off with the biscuit top, and then why not drench it in some more strawberries?
Just watch out for that peculiar purple pieman trying to rain on your berry parade.
