We Should Cocoa – the June Challenge

We Should Cocoa | 1st June 2011 | By

Well I think we need a bit of light relief after all that rolling – I know I certainly do. Having said that, there have been lots of admiring comments about the standard and variety of the entries. If you haven’t seen the roulade round-up, it’s worth a look, it really is. This challenge will hopefully be something that you’ll all enjoy. With the exception of the Tea Challenge, I’ve been trying to stick to the seasons in my choices this year. So, summer is a coming here in the UK, it’s June, it’s Wimbledon, it’s Strawberries – yes, that’s right, strawberries. For those living where strawberries aren’t in season, there is always good old strawberry jam to use instead, or strawberry liqueur or any other strawberry concoction you might come up with.

If this is your first visit or you need a reminder of the rules, check out the We Should Cocoa challenge page.

    Thanks all – glad you’re all keen. Look forward to seeing what you come up with and do hope you enjoy eating those strawberries as well as the lovely weather. Just had our first strawberry (only about 6 in total) and it was the best!
