This is probably the 3rd season that locally grown strawberries are available here in Bangladesh. Tk 200/kg (U.S. $1.16/ lb).

My wife did a superb job of putting together this wonderful dessert, which was all we had for our evening meal!Strawberry Shortcake

I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE THESE STRAWBERRIES AT THIS TIME OF YEAR!  They let me taste me one, and I immediately bought a small pack to take back for Alice to taste as well.  We are enjoying our stay at the Hotel Encounter Nepal hotel.  The tub and hot water are a special treat for my wife, Alice!

STRAWBERRY DELIGHT!

IT’S NICE TO SEE THAT STRAWBERRIES ARE AVAILABLE IN BANGLADESH.  I remember in my teen years, some days picking 100 quart in a morning.  My parents yearly had anywhere from 2-6 acres of strawberries.  These berries sure were delicious over “soft” ice cream.  With the temps these days it doesn’t take long for ice cream to get soft outside of the freezer!  Almost makes you think you are eating “Dairy Queen” ice cream!

Sweet and Delicious!
