Cherries

I ran out to the little fruit-stand on the corner of Broadway and 111th to pick up some oranges. I ended up coming home with 2 lbs of cherries, 2 lbs of green grapes, 2 lbs of strawberries, and 3 oranges. Whoops. But, it's fruit, so I really can't feel guilty! And it was only $11, which really isn't bad for more than 6 lbs of summer fruit.

So, dinner tonight was a big bowl of cherries, so sweet-tart and juicy that I ate them over the sink, straight from the colander. I'm sure I could have made all manner of fancy desserts and sauces, but simple is good. The perfect summer dinner.



(Much prettier in real life-- the light wasn't good this evening.)

Perhaps I'll have some strawberries later on this evening.

Yes!! I would have done exactly the same thing- nothing beats pure fresh summer cherries. I used to always go to the fruit stands in nyc on my way to work for breakfast- bananas were a must since they were only $.25!! I hope to go cherry picking in the next few days and your post has inspired me!

Cherries! Delicious! Too bad it's more expensive now than they were a few weeks ago. It was $1.25 per lb last month and now it's $2.99 in Queens. A little more than double!
