All Things Cherry

Yum
Hello there!
How was everyone's Valentine's Day weekend?  Hopefully it was full of love and sweet treats.  Luckily you can recover from this weekend's festivities with a day off and perhaps a chance to sleep in a little.  Ha!  I know that those of you with young kids don't know what sleeping past 6 even looks like.  :)  That day will come.  But, today is more than just a day off from school or work.  It's about honoring all the presidents that have served this country whether you are a liberal, conservative or somewhere in between.  So, today I am going to honor my favorite president George Washington.  I have always loved the story about him chopping the cherry tree and his truthfulness about owning up and accepting responsibility.  I know it's supposedly a fable, but there is still a lesson that can be taught from the story about accepting responsibility for your actions...always the teacher, I am...ha!

Ok...ALL THINGS CHERRY for you today!

Bing Cherries, Maraschino Cherries, fresh picked from the tree or frozen...one of these cherry recipes  can be on your table today!

Christine
