Poteet Strawberry Festival


Today I went to the Poteet Strawberry Festival in where else...Poteet, Texas. It is the largest agricultural festival in the great state of Texas! It was HUGE! and YUMMY!!!! Strawberries abounded...I had strawberry lemonade, strawberry shortcake, strawberry bread, chocolate covered strawberries, and strawberry jalapeno jelly. At the end of the day I took home a 1/2 flat of strawberries...tomorrow I am making strawberry jam.


So you would think I would be strawberried out, but as soon as I got home I had a bowl of Cheerios and cut up strawberries on top. I'm a berry good girl...but you would think my love for strawberries is small in comparison to the love & pride I saw today:
* The lady who sold me strawberry lemonade had her acrylic nails look like strawberries
* Strawberry everything: honey, nachos, tea, really any food item can have strawberries added and be delicious
* Strawberry shoes, barrettes, hats, and a decorative cow (as pictured above)
* There was even a strawberry mascot walking around and shaking hands
There was more than just strawberries too....Steve and I watched Joe Nichols perform! He was fantastic even if I sat behind the WORST MOM at the entire festival...but that is a whole other story and its not berry nice.
