We spent our weekend over at my in-laws. they live in a lovely part of Germany and have a fantastic place with a huge garden. It#s just great to play, relax and have great family barbecues. As you can imagine Soeri loves it there.

On the way there we stopped at "Erdbeerland" which is Strawberry Land literally translated! A strawberry field where you can pick your own strawberries. Yes, this is one of my favorite seasons. We love picking the fresh juicy strawberries, without pesticide and naturally grown. As you can see from the picture below they were gone really fast. So, on the way back home we stopped there again for another 3 1/2 kg of strawberries!

Yes, the lunchbox today revolves around the great fruit! The toastie is filled withe my homemade Strawberry Mango Jam and the container is filled with pick me strawberries from the field. Besides that a container filled with peach and apricot mousse. In the back a few Tuc crackers filled with cream cheese. Treat today: A chocolate muesli bar!

Adult Variation: Have breakfast for lunch today and try out the jam. It's refreshing when the temperatures are rising outside. Nothing compared to fresh strawberries in any form! So a must for the lunchbox. A savory snack with the Tuc crackers are great. Just enjoy the start of the week and your lunch!


Soeri looks delighted with the strawberries!!

I too have fond memories from childhood picking strawberries!!
