Strolling amongst the vendors' booths, she paused at the end of each row to inhale the scents that promised fresh, crisp produce in the next aisle. Trying to decide between a golden pineapple and a sonorous cantaloupe, a basket of ruby red strawberries caught her eye. Thanking the vendor, she nestled the berries in the bike basket and hastened home.
After a quick rinse, she arranged the strawberries in a bowl. Selecting the ripest, she carefully separated their feathery leaves and sliced the hull into thin slivers. Spreading crunchy peanut butter on sugary sweet cinnamon raisin bread, the berries made a perfect topping for a Sunday breakfast.
