the best things about summer are

sleeping outsideand strawberry shortcake2 cups of flour, 1 T. baking powder, 2 T. sugar, 1/2 t. salt
Cut in 6 T. butter (to size of peas)
Add 1/2 C milk, 1 egg, lemon peel (save a little of this out)
form into a thick circle, wash with reserved milk/egg/lemon peel
sprinkle liberally with turbinado suger
cut into six wedges (or eight if you are feeling stingy)
bake in preheated 400 degree oven for about 15-18 minutes
go to your local farm and get your berries,
local is the only way to go with strawberries and I mean it
sprinkle strawberries with sugar and triple sec and macerate
*that's what you do with fruit, not marinate (like for meat, eeewww)
You are allowed to eat this as your entire dinner once per summer.
