Fresh Strawberries with Fruit Dip

I took a break from blogging and again went in search of spring.  From last week to this week, there are changes to see.  The nectarine, peach, pear, and mayhaw trees all had a few buds just beginning to open.  The daffodils that I incorrectly called jonquils last week have big yellow blooms.  One of the Japanese magnolias had buds that were beginning to crack open with a pink bloom.  It was warm enough to wear shorts and I know that will not be the norm in a few more days but I can sure enjoy this much needed reprieve from winter for now!

We enjoyed sweet juicy strawberries grown in Plant City, Florida a couple of weeks ago that I had found at our local Winn Dixie in Dothan.  I only had to wash them and they were ready to eat.  No sugar was needed to sweeten them.

8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese

Whip all together.  Refrigerate.
