Oh Mother Nature!
I think you must have misplaced that last memo we sent you.
We were thinking "April Showers" bring May flowers...
You know how that old saying goes...
Well, what's with all the snow?!?
At least that's what we are facing here in my part of the world!
Some of you ladies I hear are enjoying sunshine, green grass and blossoming gardens. Make sure to enjoy every second of what spring has in store for us be it be snow or sunshine!
Make me a promise that you will something new this month...you won't regret it!
The Month of May is...

This month's GTKY questions are:
All hosts are required to answer this in the leaders lounge!!
What flowers are blooming in your yard?
Have you dusted off and fired up your grill yet?
Large strawberries with stems
White chocolate (such as Nestle Premier White Morsels or Wilton White Candy Melts; 1 cup of pieces will coat about 12 strawberries)
Red food coloring
Decorating sugar (sprinkles also work well)
1. Rinse the berries, then pat them dry with paper towels.
2. Place the white chocolate in a bowl and melt it in the microwave according to the package instructions. Stir in red food coloring until the chocolate is tinted pink (we used 5 drops for 1 cup of chocolate).
3. Pour the sugar onto a plate. Holding each berry by the stem, dunk it into the chocolate, then roll it immediately in the sugar. Place the berries on a sheet of waxed paper and let the coating harden.
For a fancy look, we garnished the berries with mint leaves
