I’m supposed to limit my intake of goitrogenic foods – one of these being strawberries. But it’s Christmas Eve and I wanted to eat strawberries and drink a glass of champagne. Since I won’t be eating strawberries that often, Marty bought me the very expensive ones they sell in Japan for Christmas. They are the most amazing strawberries I have ever tasted. They are huge and full of flavour and nothing like the small watery things they call strawberries in Northern Ireland.
