Better Than Candy

Run, not walk, to your nearest grocery store and get some Rainier Cherries....they are amazing! Firm and sweet, juicy and everything you think they should be.
Our little family has a particular weakness for these sweet little gems. I ordinarily try to buy things that have not traveled too far, trying to keep it local, but these i just can not resist. Not even the price can deter me! I am known to put them on the register and avert my eyes when they are being rung up!
Today we happened upon some in our tiny little commissary(aka military grocery store). Avery and i loaded 3 bags into our cart, all the while she was giggling because these are her favorite summer fruit too.


We were not in the house 10 minutes before we broke out the first bag and devoured it on the spot and with much excitement. They were even better than we remembered from last summer. I think we might be going back for more before they are all gone.

How funny. I have been eating cherries nonstop for the past few weeks. And Rainier are uber fabulous--how great that the kiddos love fruit so much.

I thought you were going to pick them over at the farm. I'll have to see if we have any available over her.
