Father’s Day Strawberry Dessert {Part I}

Today it’s Father’s Day and most of our Sunday involves not a whole lot of anything until later this afternoon when we head to my parents’ small farm about 40 minutes away.
I hear my mom’s roasting a duck.
And my sister’s making her awesome, cheesy mac ‘n cheese, and some other delish vegetarian side to go with it I’m sure, as she’s the non-meateater of the family. Remind me to have her guest post that mac ‘n cheese recipe….
I’m bringing one big, fat steak for my husband, who would graciously eat the duck but would also not consider it a Father’s Day “treat” for him.
Also? I’m bringing dessert. Dessert with a strawberry theme, which seems perfect for summer and also takes care of the two pounds of red beauties I bought on sale last week but no one’s eaten.
Here’s a preview of the strawberry goodness, and more will come in a follow-up post.
What desserts do you like to make for late spring, early summer holidays like Father’s Day?
