So let me tell you about how this day was a total fail.
You know what grocery stores DON’T sell fresh right now?
Cherries. That’s right. They don’t.
Frozen cherries? Really hard to find. And when I finally found them at Fairway, I was going to work, so I wasn’t about to bring a bag of frozen cherries to work.
And you know what I refuse to put in my body?
Canned cherry pie filling. No thanks. I won’t eat that. There’s very little natural or wholesome about that canned stuff and I will not eat it. Yup, I’ll eat almost an entire bag of jelly beans, but I won’t eat canned pie filling. Judge me all you want.
So, I did what we at Food 365 do best: I half assed this holiday.
Here’s my adorable little cheesecake and, that’s right, a big container of dried cherries.
And you know what?
It was damn good. The perfect pre-shift snack. Creamy and sweet cheesecake meets tangy, concentrated cherry flavor and makes my mouth happy.
I only wish that cheesecake had been a little bigger.
