I’m working on the restaurant review for our fabulous dinner at Saltyard Saturday evening, but in the meantime, I thought I would share the yummy dinner I prepared for our weekly Sunday family dinner night with my parents.

Who is stopping by a farmers market this weekend? If you happen to buy some fresh strawberries, I have a tried and true recipe for the perfect dessert to compliment your dinner.
