Megan blogs at Stetted, and she invited Adam and I over — well, she posted on Facebook that she had space and we RSVPd — for a berry themed Thanksgiving live webinar and twitter tasting sponsored, in part, by Driscoll’s.
The food was delicious, but for me, this munchkin (Megan’s son), stole the show.
