cherryfest! {and a big thank you!}

9 Jul

it’s cherry season!!!!!

it’s the best time to buy cherries right now – they are at their in-season peak and the price is right!  if i may – another push to get you to buy organic. cherries are on the dirty dozen list {as is most things you eat the skin with}, so it’s best to buy them organic if you can.  don’t be scared, when you buy items in season at their peak, you pay less, the taste and quality are better, and you are voting with your dollars!  OG cherries are typically 9-10 dollars a pound when bought in march or april when they start trickling in.  but if you buy them now, you’re going to pay a lot less – somewhere between 3-5 dollars a pound — and yes, for organic!  and if you can grab some from a farmers market, even better!!! or if you have a CSA buy-in, you may notice them arriving with your monthly shipment. yum – and you can totally freeze them. or make jams or syrups for your sodastream maker…

or serve them with your brunch alongside fresh seasonal and local peaches, and the world’s best pears — taylors gold.

mmm, brunch.

i like how :

a) cherries kind of look like a heart as is

b) the light reflection in this particular cherry is in the shape of a heart

ALSO – i’d like to add two things to this blog.

for one thing, i have officially crossed the 100 followers mark! i’m hoping there is a way i can find out who my 100th follower was, so i can send a personalized thank you note.  also, i had some lovely australian reader{s} hop on my site last night/this morning and spend some time viewing most everything and i want to send a shout and thank my aussie fans for reading!  i appreciate wordpress and its platform so much – it’s an ego boost i must admit, to wake up on a monday morning after not blogging all weekend and seeing that your blog has had the most hits to date — kind of inspiring and makes me want to blog more and more! i do this for fun because i enjoy it, but i also do it because i DO want to reach an audience.  so knowing that i do, really makes me smile!  i put a lot of effort and a lot of ME into this blog, i can’t tell you how much it means when people take time to read and view everything, not just the latest blog post.

thank you to each one of you for reading.  it makes my efforts less in vain 😉

happy monday – go get ’em tigers! and get some cherries, too!
