The stomach bug hit our house and even though I wasn't hit very hard (knock on wood), my appetite hasn't been that strong the past few days. I had planned on making this mousse for a while so I really needed to get it made while the strawberries were still fresh. I didn't think this was bad but I probably would
have enjoyed it more had I been feeling 100 percent. The mousse was a bit soft
even after chilling it for quite a while - I might have used too many
strawberries. I would have like this more with real cream cheese and real
whipped cream but who wouldn't? More in keeping with it's intentions, I think a sprinkle of graham
cracker crumbs might have perked this up too.

Question of the Day: Have you been enjoying more fresh fruit than usual
this winter?

It seems like there's a lot more fresh fruit coming in from other countries this winter. To be honest, most of it has been better than anything I bought all last summer.
