Hanging Out at the Farmer's Market
The change of weather has also brought a bounty of fresh produce. The picture here is of the fabulous, amazing, super sweet strawberries that are a mainstay of the California Central Coast, and while we've been eating our weight in them, the real attraction, or shall I say distraction is the short cherry season. And tomorrow, if the weather cooperates and drops down into the 80s with a nightly temperature in the upper 40s, I will be cranking up the oven and rolling out pie dough and making my annual cherry pie. Actually, it's the only pie I make, but that's because I'm a total cake person, with the exception of cherry pie. That is truly the one and only pie that I lust after--who knows why? So, I'm here now, but I'm off to pit the cherries and make the pie dough and stash it all away in the fridge for a cooler moment.
