Oh how I love summer for the fresh fruit. Couple that with an incredible sister, all the better.
So what does summer fruit and a sister have in common? When I opened the door to my front porch yesterday, a whole lug of cherries was sitting there. Now if you aren't familiar with how much a lug is, try guessing around 28+ pounds. That's a lot of cherries! All these cherries were left by my sister who knows cherries happen to be my all time favorite summer fruit. She always does special things like leaving fresh veggies from her garden on the porch..even fresh eggs. Yesterday, the cherries came with a dozen farm fresh eggs and fresh cream. She knows we're cooks here so there may be an ulterior motive...do you think?
So today, all those farm fresh eggs, cream and some of the cherries went into a cherry clafoutis for her...think I'll make one for us, too. For the rest of the weekend, I'll be cherry pickin' right from the box and enjoying some summer pleasures!
Hope your weekend's terrific!
