Wow, that looks good. I gotta get me some blueberries and strawberries and cream this week! I especially love the idea of almond extra in the cream. It just gives things such a nice 'rich' flavor.

We had something very much like this for breakfast. Blueberries were such a bargain at Costco this week!

I always make a Red, White and Blue dessert on 4th of July. Trouble is, my husband can't eat whipped topping. So it has to be whipped cream.

So I think, with all the Strawberries around... it will be simple ol' Strawberry Shortcake with some Blueberries on it. Home made biscuits... Real Heavy Whipped Cream... Whipped right before dessert and the grandkids can 'fight' over who gets the 2 beaters, for licking. :-)

Happy 4th of July and thank you, for your family's service to protecting our Freedom.
