Simple Pleasures - Bowl of Cherries



The first time I plucked a fresh cherry from its stem and popped it in my mouth I fell in love. Sweet and juicy, with the perfect bit of crunch. Simply put: Simply delicious. Of course, those little red balls of goodness have powerful antioxidants, too. Sounds like a win-win to me.

If something simple makes you smile, share it at my twin sister's party: Simple Pleasures.

  10. Oh yes, Gayle....your words bring me back to my childhood days of cherry love. My mom would buy a bag full at the grocery store, and little Heather would eat them up as fast as she could. Mmmmmmm :)

    I love your header, by the way ♥

  14. Cherries are a double simple pleasure to me because they are the husband's favorite. When I eat them in any form, I think of him. When I eat them fresh, I think of him PLUS "yummmm"

  15. Yes, yum yum, cherries are a simple pleasure. When I eat them I know it's getting close to Christmas, that's when they are available here in the shops.
