First of the Strawberries - Breakfast Tartines

We have been waiting and waiting for our local strawberry vendor to open his stand on Hwy. 12. Some years he has strawberries in April, but this year it was just a week ago that we heard he had started to open. The first three pints were eaten as is...just wonderful, juicy, amazing strawberries. Now we are starting to get creative. I've added sliced strawberries to my morning cereal and added diced strawberries to a salad.

This morning I took a slice of a baguette about the same size as an English muffin and sliced it in half lengthwise, toasted the halves in the toaster, then spread on some Kite Hill brand almond fresh cheese, topped that with sliced strawberries, drizzled on some honey from my neighbor's hive, and finished it with finely chopped toasted walnuts. A delightful take on a tartine and a great breakfast! There were leftover sliced berries, so they went into a small bowl with a dollop of soy creamer. Couldn't leave those berries uneaten.
