Strawberry Crisp

Have you ever been to one of the U-Pick farms where you can pick your own strawberries? It’s so much fun! Jon and I went a few years ago in Indiana and came home with a TON of strawberries. It’s so hard not eat them while you’re picking them. I’ve got it on my weekend to-do list to find a farm here in South Carolina to go strawberry-picking. I’ve found a few places nearby, now we just need a weekend to get over there. (It always seems to rain when Jon has a weekend off.)

I am so excited to share our new recipe with you! We’ve come up with a Strawberry Crisp that is fabulous either warm out-of-the-oven or chilled in the refrigerator. You can use up all those strawberries that you went and picked (or bought from the grocery store, whichever you prefer).
