Default Balsamic Strawberries with Black Pepper

Seriously...where have these been all my life!! I made a test of these this morning as a topping for my brother's birthday cheesecake, and while they may sound bizarre, they are fabulous

16 oz strawberries
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup sugar (I'm subbing in Splenda for my own non-cheesecake consumption)
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper (honestly, I probably use more)

Slice strawberries, mix together, allow to macerate in fridge for about an hour = deliciousness

Entire recipe...about 360 calories. About 175 if you sub in splenda for the sugar. And that's for the entire pound of strawberries -
One for every 5 pound loss...(reset)
Long Term Goal

Mini-Goal 1: 234 -15 pounds loss ---> Mini-Goal 2: 224 - 10% loss --->Mini-Goal 3: 199 - Onederland! ---> Mini-Goal 4: 174 - 30% loss
Mini-Goal 1: MET!!! 10/13/10 --------> Mini-Goal 2: Met!!! 11/5/10 ---->Mini-Goal 3: Met!!! 2/25/11 ----->

That sounds AMAZING! I've had strawberries and balsamic before, but never with the addition of sugar/splenda and black pepper... Great idea!
