And CHERRY CRISP.................not one of my favourite things in the world. I prefer the fruit just the way it is. But not enough cherries to preserve this year, because the trees were pruned hard in the fall.
4 cups, or more ( I just kind of fill the 13x9 pan with pitted cherries)
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons flour
Combine in baking pan. Turn on oven to 375 degrees. Swish a slosh of wine over the cherries.
COMBINE: 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats, 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup marg or butter, or not, depending on what you prefer. It's fine without the butter, etc.
Needs some extra baking if the cherries are a little firm.

But it being officially summer. At last.
I just can't help it. It's that lazy time when you just want to sprawl across a hot tub cover
( like Spencer) and listen to the sprinkler.
As long as you don't have allergies....

They just bloom every year.
Kind of like the cats that show up in the garden.
I know a few of them . Like the yellow lemonade rose.
I douse everything with sea soil. And a good dollop of fish fertilizer.
No sprays, no chemicals.
Except for some Bobbexx deer repellent. Otherwise there would be no roses.
And the roses seem to thrive. For some reason.
Even though I don't fuss over them.
