What says summer more than a bowl full of cherries? These cherries are unpredictably sweet and perfect for Jane and Claire who both actually enjoy spitting out the seeds. Today I also cut up 6 giant oranges a few to eat and squeezed the juice from the rest. (about 3 cups worth) I boiled the juice for a few minutes then froze it to make a succulent orange granita
Lunch today was slow coming. After making the granitas, I had three very hungry children who were disappointed to find that they had to wait for 3 hours while the orange juice turned to slush. So in a hurry I turned a whole-wheat tortilla into an avocado, tomato, and Mozzarella salad with fresh peaches on the side. A little course salt added the perfect flavor to the homegrown tomatoes.
I also tossed a salad together using Arugula, cucumbers and strawberries-quite refreshing. Coriander seasoning was used with a dry-white wine and olive oil to create a nice dressing.
