Strawberry Shortcake

Sunday, andres_s_p_b and I stopped by the Farmer's Market after breakfast with his relatives[1]. andres_s_p_b picked out some really fantastic strawberries.

Later, brooksmoses and I made micheinnz's double-ginger muffins. They are quite tasty, especially when warm, but a little dry once they've been out of the oven for a while.

Which makes them the perfect base for strawberry shortcake, with tasty disassembled muffin and tasty sliced strawberries and a bit of milk and whipped cream. I've had it for breakfast three days in a row now (okay, actually yesterday I used peaches instead of strawberries).

[1] At Neto. It's new, and while cleverly disguised as a cafe and bakery, it also has falafel. We are told the falafel is quite good; if true (we had breakfasty foods Sunday, because it was breakfast, but we intend to go test the falafel soon) this will make us very happy, as we've been deeply pining for Aladdin's. It does a darn good job with the cover identity, too; quite tasty hot chocolate and many intriguing dessert-type pastry items.
