Strawberry Blueberry Crumble

(This recipe was originally posted on my food blog on August 10, 2010)
Best served warm, this berry crumble is fruity and delicious! So, on my grocery shopping adventure this morning, I ran across some beautiful strawberries, for only $1.88 for a whole pint! That was a deal that i simple couldn’t pass up! I knew that I wanted to make smoothies, but beyond that, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the rest of them. I ended up picking up some blueberries on the same trip, so I decided to combine the two, and try this yummy dessert. I have made this dish before, but always with peaches or apples. Before today, I never would have imagined that I would enjoy the taste of warm strawberries, but this simple, easy dish is going to become a staple in our home!
