A Perfect Bite

July 13, 2012


Keren and the boys are kind of in awe at the fresh produce that is so plentiful around here. My parents live in fruit central – tons of cherry, peach, apricot,apple and cherry orchards – so there are fruit stands all over. Plus Olathe sweet corn is fairly famous, and it’s grown right here. Up in Alaska, where Keren, Charlie and Jacob live, they have very little fresh fruits and veggies, and what they do have is pretty bleh.

Today we went walking to a couple of fruit stands nearby, but were too late and they had closed. Luckily a weird little antique store that sells knick-knacks, guns, boots and great brisket (I said it was weird) had some fresh cherries. We bought some, along with some fancy chocolates.

Back at the house I ate half of a dark chocolate macadamia nut cluster with a bite of cherry, and almost passed out from the awesomeness of it. I had to stop before I ate the other half because it needed one more element to make it perfect – a sip of coffee. I reheated some cold coffee doctored it up with milk & sugar, then: heaven.

Sweet, tart, dark, mellow, nutty, bitter.

    Hmmm… I don’t usually like macadamia nuts. Maybe if I tried them in this combination…
