...happy day dear ones!!
won't you come in?
how about now???
if you guessed cherry preserves
you'd be a-l-m-o-s-t right!
as these glorious jars are full of
SOUR cherry preserves!!!
My dearest mom made them with organic sour cherries
that she ordered from a local farm in Ohio
~ all 30 pounds of them!!!!!!
that's alot of sour cherries!!!
...you could say that...
these are the fruits of her labor!!!
I'm sure it was no laughing matter when she first saw how many that actually was!!
I am sooooo grateful and absolutely over the moon thrilled to have them
she knows that this is my most favoritest preserve
I use it on almost everything
from waffles to chops!!
I have even been known to eat it straight up from a spoon
like a salad serving spoon!
~ it is that GOOD!!!
I have decided that for my birthday cake
I'm going to make a decadent dark chocolate cake
with chocolate ganache
and these sour cherries are goin` in the center!!!!
I think I died and went to heaven!!!
you read that correctly ~
I AM baking my own cake!!
my mom would,
but she lives too far away
and the thought of hot melted cake
and hubby`o mine???
get great pleasure from baking!
so this will be a gift to myself
I know what it will be made of
`cause I can choose the very best ingredients that I can get my hands on,
this chocolate cake is sure to be deliciously tasty!!!
as I sit here
and soak up all the love from my basket...
and ponder my happy little cake shopping list,
...and savor each delicious bite of these preserves
and encourage you to seek little moments such as these
and share your love with those around you
with the things you are gifted at!!
and to truely savor each moment...
thanks for sharing this moment with me :)
here's to sour cherry joy!!!
