Oh yes she can, and make it local too!
Genevieve and I picked cherries last summer and then we sat on the porch with Ben and pitted most of the cherries. I say most, because we found a fair amount of pits in our pie.
We had some of our own ice cream with the pie, left from breakfast last week and by now thoroughly frozen.
The cherry pie followed a meal of 1000 Island Slaw with Chicken and baked sweet potatoes.
I adore this coleslaw, and I loved how the flavors all went together in this menu.
I bought local chicken breasts and roasted them. Ben liked picking the meat off the bones. Then I made a little pot of stock with the bones, which turned out to be providential because my husband came down with the nasty cold that is everywhere right now. Real chicken stock fights that junk like nothing else!
