When You Care Enough to Give the Very Best...

Give a crate full of rotten strawberries. Because, although they don't know it yet, it's what every housewife needs.

One of the guys who works for us from time to time always brings us goodies. Often, it's fruits and veggies that he gets from other places he works at. Sometimes, it's even yummy home-cooked Moroccan meals (we've already established that I love Moroccan food). This time it was the ever-popular, enormous crate of rotting strawberries. Mmm. I mean, who can resist that kind of temptation? In his defense, they were covered with a non-transparent plastic film, so maybe he didn't know.

Anyway, I sat them outside with the intention of getting rid of them later in the day. Didn't even have to. Who knew that this sort of thing is a delicacy in the chicken world? Look, the blacks and reds even share plates when it comes to rotten strawberry feasts.

So, I've got a new catch-phrase for everyone. It's a bit long, so bear with me...

Happy as a flock of chickens in a tub of rotten strawberries.

It's got a nice ring to it, don't you think?
