Cool meme, mb. I love mango salsa especially on barbecued halibut. Taurus here too. What day is your birthday?

i'd love the recipe for your strawberry spinach salad. that sounds divine and just perfect for summer.

La vie en rose, nice new photo! Like most of my cooking, there is no written recipe. But it's simple and easy — yogurt with a little honey, or use store-bought vanilla yogurt with no honey... and add a little ground cardamom to taste (freshness makes a difference here)... use as a dressing, over sliced strawberries and spinach. Use as little or as much as you desire.

mb-- My birthday is May 13th. Taurus sun, Capricorn moon, Aquarius rising. When I was young I knew what all of that meant, now I just know it as ancient biography.

Sky, thanks!

Leslee, it is too bad — I think we'd have a few things in common to enjoy!

Robin, belated happy birthday to you! You know more about it than I do.

Snowsparkle, oh, I'm looking forward to what you've done!

Jean, je crois que vous avez raison! Il n'y a pas assez de l'amour dans tout ce monde.
