Blame it on the heat...

I have been so negligent in posting specials! We have them. Every day.

It's one of my favorite seasons - Sour Cherry time! The big, sweet, dark cherries are lovely to eat out of hand, but that classic cherry taste associated with pies, jams and cobblers is the sour cherry. We have a Roasted Pork Loin with Cherry Chutney Panini today. The season only lasts a few weeks - please enjoy it while we can! Saturday I'm pulling out the Cherry Cobbler French Toast Casserole....

Today we also have a classic Tuna Salad (also available as a Tuna Melt).

If you have the chance make a trip out to one of the pick-your-own farms for cherry picking. Larriland Farm, just off I-70, has a lovely orchard. Step into the tree - toward the truck - then turn to look out. The cherries are like drops of stained glass. It's 10° cooler out in the country away from cement and asphalt, but take a water bottle.
