They are in-season right now, ripe and SO good. But what to do when your boyfriend brings home 3 times as many as you could ever possibly eat? (although a very sweet gesture) Search through your cookbook until you find something yummy you can make with them. Last night I made the following which I had never even heard of and it was FANTASTIC!!

Strawberry Bread
3 cups All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 cup Vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
4 Eggs -- beaten
1 cup mashed strawberries
1 1/4 cups Chopped pecans (optional)
Mix together flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and baking soda.
In seperate bowl mix beaten eggs, oil and mashed strawberries.
Fold together until just blended.
Place into greased loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until toothpic comes out clean.
Cool on wire rack, slice and enjoy!
(Makes 2 loaves, can easily be halved)
