Dessert…

We had hotdogs for dinner…with toasted buns -cooked on the grill…yep, just shows that I’m “Foodie Friday” material…I think….well kinda, sorta.

Our dessert consisted of these little mini-cakes…and fresh strawberries straight from our vines…

…and served on a vintage tole tray…

…defined by an old crochet piece made by my Grandmother…long ago, most likely before I was born…

…and eaten with a little monogrammed vintage fork from my husband’s late mother…
