Easy As Strawberry Shortcake

My Linger Longer today was amazing.  I bought 25 packs of strawberries yesterday at Sprouts, can you believe it, on sale for 99 cents!   I bought 12 angel food cakes from Fry's and 5 whipped creams from Walmart, oh and 5 pounds of frozen blueberries.   I already have napkins, cups, spoons, plates etc. . .

This is the first round of what I bought.

Only exciting things is I go to cut them this morning (Sunday) and like 3 or 4 strawberries in every case had gotten moldy and squishy.  I went through almost 15 of the cases and saw how little I had and freaked out! So I went to Sprouts fast and bought 30 more packs of strawberries.

Mom & Brian got home and suddenly a knock at the door and Mom was like "Oh I thought Parker was kidding!"
A little boy in our homeward heard my mom say how many strawberries we had to cut (that was even before she knew I bought 25 additional packs) and said he'd come help.
This sweet eleven year old comes to help cut strawberries for my YSA Linger Longer AND he doesn't even eat Strawberries.  I sent a pack home for the family but WOW that was sweet.
I told him you really don't have to do this, and he is like I have nothing else to do, I want to help. SO SWEET!

The strawberries smelled so delicious, I was happy with how many I had.  This pic doesn't show all that we cut :)

I personally LOVE blueberries so I bought that little 5 pound pack so put sugar & lemon juice to cook up just for a few people who didn't like strawberries.  

Turns out they were a big hit, once the blueberries ran out, I went to take it, and people were like NO keep it, we can just use the syrup sauce that's left.  Yum.

Me on my last few packs.  

It went well, and it was so easy!  And clean-up was a piece of cake ;)

I want to give that boy a hug and a kiss! But he'd probably think that was crAAzy. Good job! You have got to see what Matt got James for his birthday. I can't wait for James to see it. He is going to LOVE it.

BTW thanks for disabling the dumb type whatever it says in the box thing. I HATE that.
