how to make strawberry syrup

I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but summer is beginning to wind down in our house. Wesley's birthday was this past week, summer camp has come and gone, and we are closing in on the first day of school soon. My weekly grocery list has gone from loads of grilling recipes and summer salads to easy slow cooker meals and our favorite frozen ingredients to stock up with. 

It's safe to say the lazy, crazy, hazy days of summer are being quickly traded for busy days with crazy schedules. And yes, I love it.

I thrive on routine. I accomplish MUCH more when I have a predictable, albeit full, schedule in which to plan my work time. My boys might be groaning at the thought of school starting soon, but they are very much looking forward to play dates with their friends and fall soccer starting. Stocking up with our favorite freezer breakfasts make my mornings go WAY smoother.

I whipped up this incredibly easy batch of Fresh Strawberry Syrup for drizzling over one our favorite quick breakfasts: Jimmy Dean Pancakes & Sausage On a Stick! If you have home grown strawberries, I'm totally jealous of your garden, but you really need to put this sweet syrup on your list to try this season. I'm keeping this syrup in the fridge because it won't last long in our house, but this would be a great recipe for freezing or even canning if you have an abundance of fresh strawberries to use!

Yield: 1 cup syrup

This simple strawberry syrup can be used on ice cream, in frozen drinks, over fresh biscuits - the dessert possibilities are really endless for this amazing recipe! I would say hands down though, we prefer this syrup on frozen waffles or pancakes and these Jimmy Dean Pancakes on a Stick are absolutely perfect with a big drizzle of strawberry syrup or even as a dip for these pancakes in a small dish.

These clever breakfast sticks are Jimmy Dean's signature taste and quality from America's favorite sausage brand, dipped in pancake batter. These guys are so fun for kids! On a busy school morning in which the whole family is going in different directions, you really can't beat a satisfying breakfast along with delicious strawberry syrup in 3 minutes or less.

During my last run through Target, I was really happy to cross these amazing frozen food finds off of my grocery list this week along with the rest of my shopping. Tyson Chicken Nuggets are an absolute staple in this house, especially this time of the year. For a quick afternoon snack, I like to serve Tyson Chicken Nuggets with cheese sticks and sliced pepperoni and a small dish of warmed pizza sauce for dipping. My kids go nuts for this! Plus, Tyson is moving to No Antibiotics Ever over the coming months so be sure to look for the No Antibiotics Ever label on product shelves at Target. With 100% all natural white meat chicken and whole grain breading, it's my pick for my family for sure!
