The First Rednesday of 2011!

Oh boy!  It's the first Rednesday and I'm going to serve you some cherries.....
Oh I should warn you, you might not want to eat these cherries.....
even though they are from the Cherry Capital of Michigan.....
and they are from the wonderfully charming Homestead Brand.....
but the only red you'll find in this box are cookie cutters - Christmas cookie cutters so they are already put away for the season.
Get back in there you gingerbread man!  You can't run away now!

We'll just have to enjoy imaginary cherries together.
I know, I'm a frightful tease!
If we were really having cherries, how would you like to eat them?

Cherry Pie?
Cherry Clafouti?
Cherry ______?

I vow to make a Cherry Clafouti this spring!  They always look so yumptious to me!

Well, while I was trying to corral those cookie cutters in the cherry tin, I thought I'd show you my cherry plate.
My step-sister had this plate and every time I visited, I would say, "When you get tired of that plate, be sure to let me know." So one day she brought me this beautifully gift wrapped box - for no reason - and the plate I'd always envied was then a gift for me.  She is such a sweetie!
(Doesn't Sue come up with THE BEST Rednesday buttons?)
