…I have to ditch my frugal-food ideals and buy the first, gorgeous cherries of the season. Pay twice as much as they’ll cost a couple weeks from now.  Gobble them down with abandon.  $17 worth of cherries, gone in hours, with the help of my family.  Before they’re all gone, I bring a few out onto the porch to take pictures of, in all their luscious glory.


I wish we hadn’t eaten them all.


  1. For me it is Strawberries and I like them naked as in no sugar cream(clotted) or otherwise as long as it’ not out of a can!.
    Bought some from Marks and Spencers a while back large, round oand alarmingly indulgent.Well £6.00 later I left the store went to the hoe and indulged. So I know what you mean may be a few mor pounds than you bargained on but SO worth it lol
    thanks fOR posting

  2. The diligent deserve a treat now and then.

  3. A wise woman knows – sometimes you have to just enjoy and ignore the cost! I also love cherries and like to eat them until my lips are stained -prettiest and tastiest lipscolor in the world!

    Yum! I love cherries. I love summer fruits – strawberries, peaches, cherries, plums… mmmmmm….

    I gotta run to the farm stand and find me some summer goodness.

    I love the porch picture.

  6. They’re worth non-frugality. I love them.
