I just bought an entire case of cherries.
Eighteen pounds of shiny little orbs with flesh so dark they could stain a glass of Cabernet. Oh the projects!
Whole Foods has them for $32 a box (a 22-dollar savings!), but I might have been the first to fall for the "SUMMER MADNESS" cherry sale. When I hauled my case to check-out it caused a slight ruckus involving a manager, a calculator and math (horror).
With problem solved I carried on with hipster check-out dude thusly...
Check-out dude: (bored/disgusted) That's a lot of cherries.
Check-out dude: What are you gonna do with 'em?
Me: Make pies, make jams, put them in salads, soak them in brandy...(I go on. He stops listening.)...
Get excited, friends. There's probably a pie in your future. Woot!
