It is August!!! Holy moley, time flies!! This week I am hosting the Gluten-free Menu Swap! I chose cherries as my featured ingredient. I adore cherries and have been eating them like crazy this summer. You can find great info on cherries on Wikipedia. I have used cherries in many different ways this year. I top my salads with them, I eat them in yogurt, I eat them in cereal, I eat them in ice cream, I eat them straight out of the bag. Last week I had planned on making a cherry cake, but ended up making Blueberry Chia Muffins instead because I had blueberries that needed to be used up. What is your favorite way to eat or use cherries?
This week is Hannah’s birthday! She will be 7 on Thursday!! Again, time flies!! We had a family cookout yesterday for her and she will have a small party for her friends from school this coming weekend. Talk about a full week of b-day fun!
