Boy, I don’t even know what to say anymore, except to say “Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs!”

They will never let you down. When you’re ending a week full of cold rain (in late May!), an Athena skunking, an extended family member’s major surgery, way too much work, and a kindergarten orientation for your baby – when you’ve already experienced pretty severe PTSD from the first time around – there’s only one answer. Go home to your mom and make some Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs. They’re pretty. It’s all pretty. Sometimes I just want someone to take care of me again.

Sometimes, it’s my kids who do it. But, this strawberry shortcake kabobs recipe. YUM!

Although after the orientation, when he was high on animal crackers, crayons, and donuts – and meeting his nice teacher for next year, and I was high on NOT having had an anxiety attack in front of Fellow Future Kindergartener Parents, he asked me who my favorite person in the world is. I answered CORRECTLY by saying, “Well, Dada, of course!” (obviously I want something here and it may or may not be popcorn on the stove, a hug, and a third baby – although babies don’t come from hugs). And Des said, “Well my favorite people are myself, Dada, and Nana.” Doh! “Not even me, baby?”

“Oh! Of course you too, Mama.” Of course, indeed. I don’t know if I’m buying it, though.

Here’s something I am buying, though. The ingredients for more Patriotic Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs. I’m still in work heck. The surgery went well, but was serious. The dog smells a little skunky. My emotions are a little funky. It’s all good.

  3. Melt the blue and white candy discs in separate bowls.
  4. Put a piece of strawberry with a point on the skewer first. Follow with piece of cake, then another strawberry piece with no point, then a piece of cake, and finally a strawberry with a point on it.
  5. Drizzle the chocolate over the skewers.
  6. Enjoy!
