Eating this reminded me so much of Emilee... In college, whenever the dining hall served strawberry shortcake Em and I would skip the rest of the meal and have a huge bowl of strawberry shortcake for dinner. Then we would go back in to the cafeteria, make ourselves each a second bowl, and stash them in the mini-fridge for later. Yum! I don't think I know anyone who loves and appreciates strawberries as much as Emilee does. We ate a lot of strawberries in college! It's funny to think about how much her taste in food has influenced the way I eat. People in the math department tease me about how I eat cottage cheese with my lunch almost every day. That habit came directly from Emilee! The best food that Emilee introduced me to though was the avocado. That's right: I had never had an avocado before I went to college. Shocking, I know.
Emilee would have really enjoyed this dessert. I may have to bend my no-repeating policy and make it for her the next time I am in California!
