I was asked what I do with all my strawberries, so I thought it was a great excuse to continue with a strawberry theme.
I just made a bunch of freezer jam. So easy and tastes great. I figured I leave the recipe:

Strawberry Freezer Jam
2 quarts (8cups) Strawberries
5 cups sugar
1 lemon, juiced
Directions: Stir ingredients together in a large pot and bring to a rolling boil. Let cool and pour into pint jars or plastic containers. Store in freezer.

And then low and behold. Our family favorite...
Strawberry milkshakes.
I combine fresh strawberries, mango-pineapple juice, ice cream and whipping cream together in a blender and serve. I have found that the whipping cream makes a very creamy drink. We love it.

The rest of my strawberries get washed and put into the freezer for future milkshakes and it's great with ice cream. I might make a few dessert's before I put them all into the freezer. Any one have any ideas for a great strawberry dessert?
