For Meghan's birthday surprise I chose to make her Strawberry Salsa from strawberries in my garden. We have had strawberries coming out our ears this year. This is the best strawberries we have ever had out of our garden. In the past we had a lot of little berries but these this year are really big!
I hope you have a terrific birthday Meghan and may all your dreams and wishes come true.
