in the works

So, so, so excited to have a long weekend!

Planning on giving this a go - to be consumed with a smear of fresh goat cheese and a drizzle of honey, perhaps.
And - I know - it's early for cherries here, but I can't seem to pass them by, even if they are from California...

But I had to give Todd Thrasher's cherries a go (I gave mine a hot-water bath so that they'll keep longer), and I can't wait to taste them after they've cured a bit. Also decided that this is the year I finally buy a cherry pitter (just snagged a vintage one, actually) - because that little paperclip, there? Doesn't work AT ALL - ended up using a piping tip out of frustration...

And if you're in the market for some lovely household goods, or just looking (as I am these days) at some, this spot is gorgeous - and this one too!

Have a lovely long(!) weekend!

oooh, we have a FANTASTIC cherry pitter called a zack zack that i picked up in a thrift store, years ago, for maybe $3. it has a hilarious 1950's woman with a beehive on the box, but it works brilliantly!

happy bowl of cherries :)

Hi Molly -
I'm totally going look up that zack zack; I bought one called a spee-dee cherry pitter - a 30's implement that works like a charm. They just don't make 'em like they used to, do they?
