strawberries and spring

have you guys seen the price of strawberries lately? my husband was explaining the gulf coast strawberry crisis to me - something about the cold weather so they thought they would lose their crop, so they over watered and ended up with a surplus of strawberries. which means that they are a little over a dollar in the grocery store. no joke, i came home with 4 quarts for $5.

which meant i needed to change my easter dessert choice. i made this strawberry pie and it was a HUGE hit. the recipe says it makes enough for 2 pies, but it was definitely only enough for one. such an easy desserts which tastes like spring. it will definitely be made again :)
