Cream Cheese Strawberry Pie

I was home alone yesterday and bored. I decided to make cream cheese strawberry pie. Off to the store I go. Cannot wait to get back home to make cream cheese strawberry pie. Yum!

I love strawberries anyway you fix them. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits. I thought this would be the recipe to make. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries. I rather use fresh. If you use frozen, they need to be thawed. If desired, you can thaw the frozen strawberries in the microwave.

While I was driving to the store to buy the ingredients for the pie, it brought back some wonderful memories. As a little girl, my mom, sister and I would go to this strawberry stand. And we went to the strawberry stand often. If you picked your own strawberries you got a discount. So we always picked our own strawberries. It was so much fun picking strawberries. On day when we was picking berries, my mom thought she saw a snake, she didn't say a word she just took off running. And running fast. I didn't think she could run that fast. All we could see behind her was dirt flying. Not even sure if her feet was hitting the ground that's how fast she was running. My sister and I was laughing.
