National Strawberry Day-
Its National Strawberry Day! One of my favorite garden treats has its very own special day. Who knew? Our garden is abundant with beautiful berries. I have always loved strawberries. I eat fresh strawberries nearly every day, all year round. But the best ones come from our garden. Look at these beauties. Red plump sweet and delicious. If I could give you a bowl full I surely would. Instead I hope you will enjoy one or all of these wonderful strawberry filled recipes.
We have been enjoying low fat and sugar free smoothies

I think my mini strawberry trifle will be made soon too .
