Wild Strawberries and Lindt Mini Pralines

It's been a perfect sunny evening, and DH, my wild and macho hunter-gatherer, stalks and kills the first wild strawberries from our back yard.

These little treasures are one of the best things about early summer. We have lovely plants scattered along a rock border on the edge of our property, and these fruits pop up at a convenient height for picking. Smaller than the tip of your little finger, each fruit still carries the flavor power of their larger commercial cousins.

What pairs well with these? Lindt Mini Pralines, of course!

Looking inside this box, which has been bounced around quite a bit before we got around to opening it, we find a classic assortment of Lindt's best. Plenty of nougats, good chocolate and nice fillings.

How much is a good portion? I hadn't had dessert yet, so this would make a perfect dessert. After some hemming and hawing around, I settled on trios: 2 sets of 3 berries, and one set of 3 chocolates. Perfect.


1: Better than sex
2: Little bites of heaven (very nearly qualified for better than sex)
3: Share with your best friend
4: Will do in a pinch
5: Halloween candy

Where to buy:
: you can buy Lindt most everywhere, but not at Lindt's online store, because they've closed for the summer. Will open again when it's cool.
