Mayo did feature in the tomato picking option at the end. And yes it was our good friend Claire. Who is good friends with Amanda, who writes about pickles and parties and at this point I just assume that one or both are or were Farkers because nobody knows how to party with pickles like Farkers as proven a few years back.

I grew up with that shortcake lie. Mom stopped baking when she left the farm at age 18.  When we had strawberry "shortcake" at home, it involved slices of store-bought angel food or those Twinkie-like mini cakes.  Only after Ms. Gough and I were married was I introduced to the genuine article.

Same here. It usually was the store bought Twinkie-like mini cakes and whipped cream from the aerosol can.

My friend ran an in-home daycare. When she did strawberry shortcake for the kids she would slice a Twinkie in half lengthwise, spoon on berries and some ready whip. Worked for the kids. When she made it for family they got real shortcakes.

I like shortcake but prefer Schaum torte during strawberry season.

If you're going storebought, at least use pound cake instead of angel food cake.

There is nothing quite like stuffing handful after handful of just-picked sun-warmed berries into your mouth. They will never again taste as good, no matter what you add to them or how you cook them. Don't ruin that experience by mixing the fresh berries with cheap factory-made ingredients. You can do that later, when they're slightly less fresh.
