Strawberries and Flags

On Thursday we went to my parent’s to partake in a favorite summer tradition – strawberry torte, and to celebrate Flag Day. Here is mother setting the stage…
Judah enjoys the last of the whipped cream after Dad has completed his creation.

This is Dad’s masterpiece – three layers of lighter-than-air, almost-not-there meringue, spread with melted chocolate, sliced strawberries, and generous amounts of whipped cream. A for-taste of heaven…

It’s very messy, and required three people to serve…

Alyssa digs in. Generous slices for everyone – it must all be eaten, for it doesn’t keep!

More pics of our party coming later today….

    yes, the strawberries were from their patch, but there may have been a few added from the Amish farm stand. don't want to run out when it comes to torte!

    My goodness! That is my kind of dessert! It looks delectable. I think I may have to try something like that for Independence Day. The garden looks beautiful, too!

    *excuse me. I had an extra "your" in that question. It would be there the one time I decided that I didn't need to preview my comment…*
