Do you ever go to Costco and buy more than you planned? Me too! I have a love/hate relationship with that store.
I love that I can buy products in large quantities (because I hate grocery shopping) and that they have quite a large selection of organic products. The hate part comes from going in, with a list, prepared to buy certain products and then falling prey to all of the wonderful deliciousness they have to offer.
Friendly Shopping Tip: DO NOT GO SHOPPING WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY!
This may seem quite obvious, and I know this, but I did it anyway and now have a freezer full of things I really didn’t need :/
Anyway, when I came out of there with a few (three) large bags of frozen fruit I wondered what in the world I was going to do with all of it. Then it hit me- Cherry Crisp! If you find yourself in possession of large amounts of fruit, like cherries, give this cherry crisp recipe a try.
You will not be disappointed!
