A Rainy Day & Strawberry Shortcake

Happy Independence Day! I have been excited about celebrating the 4th of July for the past few weeks. Sophia has never seen fireworks and I have been looking forward to taking her to see them. Unfortunately we woke up to a down pour of rain:( I am not so sure if fireworks will be an option for us tonight. We are crossing our fingers that the weather will get better before this evening.

If there is one thing that the rain can't ruin, it's baking! After watching the rain fall for a few minutes, Sophia and I got to work in the kitchen. A patriotic holiday requires a patriotic dessert! Bring on the strawberry shortcake! This recipe is so QUICK, EASY, and INEXPENSIVE. I would be willing to bet that you already have the ingredients in your pantry. If you are looking for a QUICK dessert for tonight, this might be just the thing. The homemade biscuits are much healthier than that Bisquick stuff from the grocery store. I'm just sayin'....
