And the prize of summer: cherries. Which I always say in a Long Island accent: instead of "Chair-ries" I transform them to "Char-reys" :mrgreen:

I just wanted to say I have been checking out your site and you do an amazing job. Your food always looks amazing and delicious and has inspired me to eat better. I majored in nutrition in college and have since taken a different career path but still love food and health. Keep it up :)

Oh I totally don’t get gazpacho. Cold soup, really?

I made some fruit gazpacho yesterday, it is SO good! I love cold soup.

I had the same little Fisher-Price stovetop! Seeing that pic brought back memories. I recall there being two little plastic salt + pepper shakers that came with. Adorable!

Souper means dinner in French … I was all confused hehehe :)

Haha, cute! I almost made a peach gazpacho yesterday, but I ended up making a jam instead.

Mmm, cherries! We have a big bowl downstairs and I can’t stop popping them into my mouth. Do you know anyone who can tie the cherry stem into a knot in my mouth? I actually succeeded yesterday, except it wasn’t a very tight knot… :P

I think I need to make gazpacho asap. :D

omg! i had that same toy. Seeing it brought back good memories. :) Remember the blue salt and pepper shakers that sat in the two circles on that little ‘shelf’?

16 wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas June 14, 2010 at 12:15 pm

Hey, I’m from Long Island and I don’t say cherries with a funny accent…
Maybe it’s you, missy, who has the funny accent…:)

Ok, so I’m not from there anymore. Now I have a hybrid Long Island/Pennsylvania accent. Weird, fo sho.

17 Ella June 14, 2010 at 4:26 pm

haha, I have to say I’m in solidarity with Kath – being from Seattle and living on the East Coast for the last 9 years has shown me that many people from both LI and PA don’t pronounce the “ay” sound in “cherries” like I grew up hearing and instead say “char-ries” or “Sahr-rah” instead of “Sarah,” etc. I think you nailed it Kath! :)

Reply

18 Kath June 14, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Spot on!! Your spellings are much better than mine. “Char-ries”!!

Reply

19 Katie June 15, 2010 at 6:08 am

I was going to say something about long island accents ( since that’s where I’m from), until I thought in my head “There’s an “ay” sound in cherries? ”
I guess we do say it differently lol.

Ha – way to own it Katie!

21 Dorry June 14, 2010 at 12:17 pm

Loved your comment about the cherries yesterday – so true that I’ll drop $10 on a glass of wine but have a hard time shelling it out for fresh organic fruit. The fruit makes me feel a lot better than the wine the next day. :)

22 Melissa @ HerGreenLife June 14, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Those cherries look delicious — any chance they’re locally grown? Great point yesterday about the price of cherries in comparison to wine. It is interesting how some things seem so “expensive” until we stop, compare, and evaluate priorities. Good, healthy produce, grown in a way that keeps the earth healthy too, is worth the price :) As the saying goes, “You can pay your farmer, or you can pay your doctor.”

23 Kath June 14, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Well, I feel pretty amazing too and I HAVE been eating grains and dairy!! I think it’s more about eating real food and being conscious of what you put in your mouth than cutting out specific food groups.

24 Stacy (StacyGrowsHealthy) June 14, 2010 at 12:30 pm

We haven’t had any cherries yet this season. They are so refreshing!

25 Lindsay @ Summit Sandwiches June 14, 2010 at 12:34 pm

Gazpacho is one of my fav summer meals! Seeing your soup reminds me that I need to make another batch soon!

Reply

26 Mom June 14, 2010 at 12:38 pm

Gosh I wonder what happened to Kath’s salt and pepper shakers. Actually, now that I think about it, I’m not sure if we kept the stove. Could be in the attic. If I’m ever a grandma, then I’d sure be willing to search for it…

27 Robyn @ Frugal 'n' Fit! June 14, 2010 at 12:49 pm

I am pretty much addicted to cherries right now. My addiction is short-living due to the growing season, but intense! Oh, so intense.

My mouth has been doing a little song and dance ever since Rainier cherries have come into season. They’re my favorite. :D

Btw, your pancakes from this morning looked so yum! I’m glad I got my pancake fix before logging on today, or I’d be in the kitchen right now, whipping up a batch. x)

I’m not really a fan of cold soup, but I guess I really haven’t had the craving cause it’s still relatively cold here.

Reply

34 Krissy (Single Serving) June 14, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Now you have me sitting here with my Long Island accent saying “cherries” aloud.

I never realized it was one of those words where when I say it – it’s obvious where I come from!!! :) I know “walk”, “dog” and “coffee” are culprits but now I’ll add “cherries” to the list. ;)

35 jen June 14, 2010 at 1:24 pm

ahhh! this reading specialist says, “it’s an r controlled e. ch-er-ries. errrr. all together now class.” haha. i’ve been reading too much on phonemic awareness today. hmm. i wonder what reading specialists in other parts of the country do where strong accents prevail? ohh, discussion question for class tonight! :)

I’ve never gotten into cold soups and I have no idea why. I really must give it another try! Looks yum!

I love your blog! I used to check it out for new recipies and ideas, but I recently completely re-vamped my diet so I don’t really eat the same foods as you do.
Just curious what the blog world has to say about the Paleo lifestyle. Haven’t touched grains and sugar or dairy for two weeks now and feel amazing. Eat a ton of MEAT (organic, grass fed), veggies, fruit (yes, I love fruit!) and nuts and fat.

Feel stronger, leaner, ready to take on the day, NO hunger at all.

I love that pumpkin flax granola! The friends I was camping with this weekend brought cherries… but sadly they were sour and nasty! It made me sad, hahah.
