I would have a party that started in the morning with crepes covered with strawberries, mimosas and strawberries. Feeding my friends, whom I have adopted as family, until they became full and content. Then we would have a "guess the number of strawberries left in the fridge" and the winner would get to take some home with them. In the meantime we would start getting ready for some snacking of fresh fruits including more strawberries with some cheeese and crackers on the side. A punch with strawberries to keep us fresh and hydrated of course and everyone having a fabulous time. Dinner would be Strawberry shortcake, with corn syrup free vanilla ice cream and fresh whipped topping. All you can eat, and the more the better. Then everyone would kick back and relax, quietly talking about the lovely day we just enjoyed and wondering when we would all be able to get together and do it again.

I can't waste them on a dessert when I love them so much in my breakfast. I could eat fresh strawberries in my oatmeal and amaranth every morning for breakfast with honey, almonds, maple syrup, coconut flakes...ohhh the possibilities are endless. Give them to me!!

I would eat them just the way they are mostly with my 2yr old son mostly but my other kids love them as well All 5 kids could enjoy a healthy snack everyday!! They can get expensive when you have such a big family to buy for. Then there is strawberry shakes, pies, ice cream, smoothie, and so on!!

I'm all over some strawberry rhubarb cobbler! Nothing says Southern dessert like a strawberry.

We would eat tons of them, just washed and hulled. Then we'd make strawberry kefir, and strawberry icecream. And we'd have to have strawberry shortcake--that's the law, afterall. :o)

This strawberry blonde would take her strawberry-obsessed teens to Whole Foods with our handy dandy gift card (woohoo!) and our military-style plan of action on a clipboard. What's in the plan? All of the ingredients and amounts and preferred brands and prioritization of items for our very own strawberry fest! Invitations conceived, produced, and emailed to our most devoted Strawberry fans, we would reserve the menu info for those who RSVP. What might we include? Strawberry smoothies with bananas & kiwi, spinach salad with strawberries & feta, kabobs with melon & bacon, sorbet made with fresh mint, and dessert of strawberry tarts. Heaven! My Strawberry Girl and her siblings (Chefella, Mr Artist, and Cookie) will make sure the feast includes a variety of groovy tunes, cinematic pleasures, and fun activities (bobbing for berries anyone?) I can hardly wait to experience our own Strawberry Fields Forever!

Strawberry pie...lots and lots of strawberry pie. That was always my birthday request growing up and I still love it.

If I had unlimited strawberries, I think would really get creative. I would absolutely, DEFINITELY make strawberry wine! We live near four vineyards here in the Ozarks, and wine-making is very popular, here. I would also freeze some to put on my morning yogurt, make smoothies, and strawberry daiquiris for girl's night. I would try adding them to salads and poultry dishes, too.

I love nature food. If I get a lot of strawberry, I can make strawberry smoothie, strawberry jam. The light color is more sour so it is prefect to eat with sweet stuff like short cake, cheese cake or ice cream. The strawberry in ruby color is more likely sweeter than others. I will enjoy it with added anything because I like sweet. It taste fresh and you can smell the strawberry. I feel luck to live after eating this.

In my house, we all look forward to strawberry season! Each year, we get what seems to be (funny you should mention this!) an entire 'kitchen full' of organic strawberries. We make lots and lots of organic strawberry jam. We can it using the water bath method but we also make freezer jam which is unbelievably delicious....it tastes like you just put fresh picked strawberries in the jam! One of the nice things about making the jam is that my daughter and I do it together and we enjoy spending that special time together! We make enough jam so that we can enjoy it all year long, though I must confess, it rarely lasts that long, no matter how much we make. We also give gifts of strawberry jam to our friends and family during the holiday season....it's always a big hit! We love to eat fresh strawberries with sour cream or sometimes just sprinkled with a little sugar in the raw. We LOVE our strawberries!!!

A kitchen full of strawberries: I would freeze many for later on in the year when they are no longer in season. Make homemade strawberry short-cake and have a strawberry party for friends and family. Lastly make some fantastic homemade strawberry preserves to share with neighbors. ;)

Strawberry margaritas, strawberry sauce for drizzling on angel food cake, fresh fruit salsa - with strawberries, strawberry-goat cheese, walnut salad, ricotta pancakes with strawberries, strawberry crepes, the list could go on. Oh - and of course I must make jam.

I don't do a lot of fancy things with strawberries, but if I had a room full of them? There WOULD be some serious Strawberry shortcake eating goin' on! And just EAT them...and freeze them and dry them for winter anti-oxidants. I love them in smoothies, and with a rhubarb recipe I have. YUM!

First of all I would eat a bucket full. I love them. Then I would freeze some and share some. I love to take a graham cracker crumble it up and put strawberries over it that have been chopped up and then add a dab of coolwhip over the top.. That is a good healthy dessert. I love strawberry smoothies and I am wanting to dehydrate some to see how that works. I just love strawberries period! AND WHOLE FOODS. There is only one in the Birmingham, AL area and we drive over an hour to shop there. I can be in a bad mood , feel bad pull up and tell my husband." I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER" When you walk in the store the produce absolutely looks like a painting it is arranged so great, back in the fish department I have seen fish there as long as I am tall. I am amazed and I stay there a while looking at things and deciding what I want. Then I always have to get me a piece of bread and pour some olive oil over it. I always get me a bottle of Olive oil then I go finish the rest of my shopping while stopping to smell ALL THE WONDERFUL bath, soap and bath salts and decide what I am going to get. Then of course hubby always had to go find him a sample of cheese. We usually buy the cheese we sample because we love it. We do not eat a lot of junk BUT WE GET A COOKIE each.. We are skipping over to the cookie area like we are two big old kids. The people there are wonderful and we just have a good experience. Get in the car, laugh, listen to the radio and eat our cookie on the HOUR LONG trip to home!! I LOVE WHOLE FOODS..THERAPY!!!!! And the items are wonderful. There are things there you do not get anywhere else. JUST A HEAVEN ON EARTH.

Strawberries are a staple at my home. A favorite after school snack for my daughter, perfect to top my oatmeal in the morning, a perfect addition to my spinach salad or a batch of strawberry bread!

I would make my favorite strawberry dessert. Strawberries with balsamic vinegar and black pepper on top of an almond meringue.

My latest favorite thing to eat with strawberries is a spring salad with strawberries, walnuts and goat cheese topped with balsamic and olive oil. Then of course I would have to make some chocolate covered strawberries, and some homemade cupcakes with freshly crushed strawberries. My husband made a homemade strawberry margarita with fresh strawberries, agave, fresh lime, and tequila that was just to die for a few weeks ago...so that would be a must! We have been trying to grow strawberries in our garden, but haven't had much luck with the heat down here in AZ...so a whole kitchen of organic strawberries would be to die for!

I would take half of the strawberries and inject some w champagne and tip them all in chocolate. My son and I would eat way too many and bring the rest to the YWCA for the ladies and children to eat. Strawberries are a luxury that I would love to have and share!!

I just bought my first home. I'm excited to learn how to do things I grew up doing with my mom- canning, freezing and more! I want to make jellies and jams... I love to bake, so would make strawberry pies and cakes... and throw an incredible house warming party, complete with strawberry daiquiris! :)

I would make my family's favorite dessert. Chocolate cake with strawberries inside the cake and topped with a layer of chocolate ganache and topped with fresh strawberries.

I would make strawberry-rhubarb pie, scones, and just by themselves with a little sugar.
