Cheers to Monday!

With a quart of strawberries in the fridge, I just had to use them before they went bad, right?   Beware…this recipe makes 4 margaritas just in case you thought about helping yourself!  We’ve got a few more days of the week to go, so last night a bit of caution was in order but it sure was great to have a few sips of something special…
