Everyday Cherries

I'm joining Jules in her Friday Everyday Things where we remember a simple thing that makes our life sweeter.

I know it isn't all about food, but for today, mine will be. For about a week I've quit shuddering at the cost of produce and just bought pretty much anything that grows that my children have asked for so "fresh" produce abounds (my parents with their garden are laughing right now). Today I munched on bing cherries that cost more than gold and I enjoyed every bite.

I've also been reading about the superfoods (of which dark chocolate is one) so I've tried to eat more of those. I grabbed a dark chocolate and popped it in my mouth. Before I had the chance to swallow I was practically gagging. It was so sweet and rich. After my light sweet snacks of fresh fruit all week it was just too much.

So while I might be thankful for chocolate in January, today I'm thankful for cherries. And for the wonderful people who pick them, package them and ship them to my store.

Went cherry picking as kids. What a mess! I can't figure out how the cherry farm made a profit since so much of it went into our mouths (and onto our faces) before we got to the weighers :-)

I adore bing cherries! Oh my gosh that's like my favorite fruit. When I finished my manucript, four pounds of cherries was my reward!

Oh, and I'm thankful for the post office so you can just send all that dark chocolate you don't want to me! ;)
