EXCERPT:
This is the most requested menu item by my grandchildren when coming over. We gather and freeze strawberries when in season so they can have it all year round.

Serves 8
 
2 cups strawberries
1 cup apple juice
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup water – divided
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cloves
16 oz strawberry yogurt

In a saucepan, combine apple juice, 3/4 cup water and spices. Bring to a boil. Cool. In a blender, puree strawberries and 1/4 cup water. Stir cooled apple juice mixture, strawberry mixture and yogurt until well blended. Chill and serve.

GUEST POST:
The question of what is the one meal that you could eat over and over again and why it was easy for me to answer. The hamburger would be it. I have always loved them and any one that knows me would tell you I would rather have a hamburger than a steak. You can make them so many different ways. The regular homemade burger with any assortment of condiments on it. The hamburger from any burger place…every single one is different. The burger special which is a burger with a sauce on it. It would be sad day if you could never have a burger again.
