This week I found a killer deal on strawberries. They were 75 cents per pound. Beat that!! I bought 8 pounds of strawberries! I ate and ate and ate strawberries, I still had an overwhelming amount. Why I bought 8 pounds, I’ll never know, but I had to do something with them now that I had them. When my husband suggest waffles for dinner tonight, I felt inspired to whip up some strawberry syrup. It was super simple and surprisingly delicious on top of a crispy waffle. Tomorrow we’re going to put our strawberry syrup on top of ice cream sundaes! This will be an awesome alternative to store bought strawberry syrup.
