One of my Favorite Summertime Desserts - Cherries!!

Seattle's summer may be coming at a snail's pace, but it's still warm enough to kick your shoes off, go outside, and enjoy the bounty of summer fruits in the warm air.  

A very important part of eating cherries outside, and in my opinion the best part, is spitting the pits.  The learning curve for two two-year-olds on this concept was a bit steep.  They didn't quite grasp the idea of actually eating the fruit before spitting. 

You can give your kiddo a vessel to capture the stones, but...
it's really fun to spit them into the bushes.

Mom's Tip
Stainless steel bowls and wine glasses are ideal for outside adventures.

Happy Summer
