We ate most of the cherries fresh, but I also made the upside down caramel sweet cherry cake (something like that) from Rustic Fruit Desserts (fantastic cookbook especially if you’re like me and your favorite desserts are made with fruit.) I only burned one batch of caramel before getting it right. We ate the cake with whipped cream on top, and I regretted giving myself such a large and greedy piece. It was delicious but very rich. A small piece would have been perfect.
In contrast, we also eat lots of plain whole milk yogurt (I made the switch about a year ago, and my kids don’t complain anymore) with grain free granola these days.
So far, the only melons that have ripened in my garden, have also rotted on the underside. I am thinking that next year I am going to plant the reliable Athena melons that we buy at the farmer’s market. I love planting new heirloom varieties each year, but I haven’t had much success finding any that we really like.
The first eggs are so teensy and cute (show here next to a large egg for comparison.) Hopefully the other birdie girls will join good girl number one and start laying soon as well. Between me and the kids, those nest boxes are probably being checked more than a dozen times each day.
What have you been eating? I’ve been having a hard time coming up with lunch ideas.
