Pussy willows for spring

When I was a little girl, I knew when spring was near, because my mom always brought pussy willows into the house for springtime decor! They come from a bush with little furry things that looked like soft, fluffy kittens, eventually forming into little yellow flowers.

Since my kitchen always feels better with a touch of life, I bought some pussy willows (at Costco) and placed them in a tall vase, for a recent dinner party!

serving Strawberry Cream Shortbread Dessert

In the meantime, getting ready for my girlfriends to come to dinner, I had my menu planned, dessert made (yummy recipe below), but I had to tackle getting the kitchen ready. 

Is my kitchen always clean? No way, but hosting a dinner party makes me get in there and clean in all the nooks and crannies. I’ve come to the understanding that kitchens are to be lived in, and unless everybody is going to stay on top of the dishes, etc., it’s simply not always going to be neat and clean.

How to make strawberry pie dessert

The shortbread crust only takes about ten minutes to make–press it right into the pan–and then pop into the oven.

Let it cool (while began the cleaning process).

Slice strawberries with an egg slicer

After cooling, make a white-chocolatey cream to spread on the cooled shortcake. Wash the berries and pull out the egg slicer. Buy this FAVIA Hard Boiled Egg Slicer (for Mushroom Strawberry Cherry Tomato Kiwi Fruit), with 9 blades, and dishwasher safe!

Before I finished the dishes, I whipped the cream (set back in the fridge), and made the glaze to pour over the strawberries.
