Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries...
... right up to the time when it turns into a bowl of pits, because you've eaten all the danged cherries and there ain't no more, and you don't have the f'in car so you can't go to the store and refresh your supply! And Oh! Woe is me!
Hope you guys are enjoying the cheap cherry crop from Chile while they are in season. Cherries are surely one of the "foods of the Gods". Besides, not only are they outrageously tasty... they are quite good for you. Well worth the hassle of dealing with a lil ol pit.
Hope you enjoyed what I intended to be a humorous attempt to get you all out there eating these delicious red berries before they are all gone. They only last a few weeks, you know. Then its all hydroponic or nothing until the American North West takes up the slack with their big, juicy, so good if you eat enough of them you will get dizzy, cherries. And Michigan and Pennsylvania also put forth a good crop. Other states as well. And I strongly encourage you to partake of the bounty the hardworking farmers of this nation provide. If you stop and think about it, it might make you cry too. The absolute perfection, the beauty of a Rainier cherry picked at the precise moment of ripeness. Better than strong spirits for making a person feel high.
Anyway, those Chilean cherries are right tasty, even if they are a bit smaller than some grown elsewhere. And at $3.00 per pound for fresh and in good condition, berries. Why wait? Enjoy them while they are here. You'll appreciate the local varieties even more when they show up.
Bon Appetite` my friends.
