Strawberry Bruschetta! Who doesn’t love strawberries?
I have a confession to make….
When I was a little girl, I didn’t like strawberries!
When Mom made strawberry shortcake, I would give my strawberries to my sister and I would take her little shortcake in return. I then would combine the two shortcakes with all the yummy strawberry juice and the whip cream and I was a happy girl!
Now I love strawberries….let my sister just try to take my berries….
Ain’t happenin’ !!
I’m sorry…that is improper English.
Isn’t happening Sis….I love my strawberries and this Strawberry Bruschetta is really yummy!
