First, my birthday, where not only did I have a perfectly lovely day with my family, but my best friend also surprises me with a most thoughtful and perfectly planned girl’s night in, complete with food, drinks, cake and socks:
(more to come on the socks, I promise)
(This is a most enjoyable Velletri Rosso Riserva Latium, Italy 2001, which I paired with a dish called “Pola Pola” – Artichoke Raviolinis served with two sauces: a garlic parmesan cream sauce on one half, tomato and basil marinara on the other. Yum. Caffe Boa on Mill.)
Could life be any sweeter right now?
I submit that it could, if only a little….
- 16 oz jar of pitted Morello cherries in light syrup
- 1 bag pitted dark sweet cherries
- 2 Tablespoons triple sec (or fresh lime juice)
- 2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
And I mean, enjoy!
This is your day to feel appreciated and very, very sweet.
