Strawberry Season!

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! 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!

Yum! The strawberries look delcious. We enjoyed some yesterday in Shelby. They were having some kind of little festival uptown and we just stopped to listen to the band playing on the court square. They were selling ice cream with fresh berries on top...yum!
