It’s Almost Strawberry Season

Hi Ho! Jose’ here at The Secret Bed and Breakfast! I can tell by all the flowers popping up that Spring is just around the corner! Not to mention the fact that all of us livestock are feeling the need to rub our sides along the fence line to get off all that extra winter fur! One of my favorite things about Spring here in Leesburg are the Strawberries!! I love, love, love Strawberries!! There is a farm nearby called Norris Farms where you can pick your own. Now, Kris gets a little upset if I leave the pasture, but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if you went and brought some back for me!
And, as an added bonus I’m pretty sure she would make some of her famous Strawberry Cheesecake French Toast! I had one of the guests get the recipe for me so here it is, or if you don’t want to fix it yourself just come on up for a visit! And don’t forget me when you get those strawberries!
