Actually, I can see buying that many strawberries because they're one of the main ingredients in my daily smoothies, and I can easily freeze them :) Makes the smoothie cooler in the summer too!

Mmmmm, let's see. I'd have to make about 6 thousand lbs of strawberry smoothies c/ orange and coconut, topped with real whipped cream. I'd send a truck out to make deliveries to all the neighbors. Then I'd probably cook up some strawberry compote, which could include peaches or nectarines, granny smith apples, and some coconut, of course (use oj or unfiltered apple juice for liquid). Then we'll move on to jello with strawberries for the kiddos. How about following that up with strawberry and kiwi tarts with....whipped cream, no doubt. I'd probably take a few minutes and eat something salty, then I'd get back on track with some kind of whole grain cereal, maybe puffed kamut with cut strawberries and coconut milk. The day would not be complete without some form of ice cream or non-dairy alternative. I looove So Delicious' Cherry Amaretto, piling up a huge mound of cut strawberries on top of maybe a pound of the frozen sweet..... Now THAT's a sweet day!

When my daughters and their families visit, they love to have crepes with strawberries. I would freeze a bunch and know that they will make special family times even sweeter!

I MUST have some organic strawberries mixed in with my organic almond milk and organic green powder in the morning. Organic strawberries have something conventional ones don't--flavor!!!

I would read the book "Jamberry" by Bruce Degen to the students in my school's Backpack Buddies program, and then give each one a quart of fresh strawberries to take home.

I pretty much have strawberries everyday in yogurt smoothies. My kids like to dip them in whipped cream. Also, toppings on pancakes. I just got a juicer and strawberry, kiwi and pineapple is awesome!

If I could have a never ending supply of strawberries I would first eat as many as I wanted. I would then make lots of chocolate covered strawberries and strawberries covered in a lot of other dips. I would love to have strawberry pie, cobbler and lots of other desserts. I would to have most of strawberry and reharb crisp. That's my dream of strawberries with much more to come.

I would make strawberry jam, using less sugar than found in commercial jam. Then I'd share it with all my friends, neighbors, and the kids' teachers.

An unlimited supply of strawberries would be heaven. Strawberries are the best - all by themselves. No sugar - nothing. However, an unlimited supply would allow for unlimited combinations: w/ blueberries, w/ pineapple, w/ rhubarb - mmmm rhubarb, etc. Strawberry heaven.

Last year, I froze a whole heck of a lot of local strawberries (maybe even $75 worth) and used them all year (well I ran out back in January). I used them every day to make my morning protein berry smoothie. I also use fresh ones to make pies, muffins and crisps. I want to learn how to make jam this summer. I am so glad they are just about back in season.

I'd just love to sit on the back deck with a huge bowl of berries and eat to my hearts content - no sharing and no stopping 'til I'm satisfied! That might take a gallon or two!

We make fruit pizza in the summer for dessert consisting of strawberries, bananas, kiwi, pineapple, coconut,and pecans with a vanilla whipped cream, sugar and cream cheese base and graham cracker crust and serve strawberry lemonade for the beverage. I might also add an entree with a strawberry sauce and a salad with a strawberry vinaigrette and sliced strawberry garnish-a perfect strawberry inspired meal.

I just finished reading the 1st page of comments and found some great suggestions. I am going to make the angel food cake recipe w/pineapple. Angel food cake is one of our favorites! Strawberries sliced w/a little sugar allowed to sit to make a nice topping that is finished off with fresh whipped cream laced w/a little Cointreau! Strawberries are eaten as fast as I can clean them in our house!

Strawberry preserves, for more whole fruit, to incorporate in a Dutch pancake or folded into lemon curd. Don't forget strawberry margueritas!

Sliced strawberries on plain yogurt, on cereal, or in a bowl with milk and a sprinkle of stevia crystals . . . yum!
