Strawberry season is here! And my ex surprised me with this pail of freshly-picked berries for Mother's Day! Thank you, Stosh! Aren't they just the biggest and most beautiful berries? They are also the sweetest strawberries I've ever eaten! I will be spending some time this afternoon cleaning and placing them in the freezer. I usually freeze several pails of them each Spring. I have been elected to make my strawberry cheesecake for our Memorial Day family cook-out. Stosh will grill NY strip steaks and grilled baked potatoes, Tammy will bring the fresh corn-on-the-cob and dinner rolls, Tim will surprise us with a dish of his choice, and I will make my luscious, calorie-laden strawberry cheesecake and baked beans!
Anyhow, I had a wonderful Mother's Day at my daughter's. Per my request, she served another favorite dish of mine....spaghetti and meatballs with a lovely tossed salad and Texas toast! And.....as you might know, I forgot to take along my carb blocker capsules!!! But that didn't stop me from eating!!! It was just too-oooo good! My children always give me money for my birthday and Mother's Day, so now I will have to go shopping again and spend it! I think I may buy a new piece of exercise equipment and then I can think of them when I am using it!!! Oh, the fun exercise that lies ahead! LOL Thank you, Tammy and Tim!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, too!
