Inspiration: Cherries

Happy Monday!
Today, let me take you on a little road trip.

We're going to Terhune Orchards in
Princeton, New Jersey.

We're going cherry picking!

If you've never gone fruit picking before,
we'll need to pay a little fee &
we each get a bucket.

Here are the many cherry varieties available.

Look at the trees!
They're overflowing with the
reddest, ripest cherries!

There are yellow & orange ones, too.

I think I picked about 2 pounds.

Wash them & they're ready to eat!

But what happens if you've got too many cherries?
Turn that blah dilemma into a TADA!

Here are some great breakfast ideas
that are tasty, healthy and you'll
get to use up those cherries
rather quickly.

Add them to a bowl of muesli.

Pair it with some warm oatmeal.

Or use it as a topping for your yogurt & granola.

Please come back tomorrow for
more ideas inspired by cherries!


  1. yummy cherries! Love the yellow'ish ones!

  2. I didn't know there are so many types of cherries! Wow!

  3. oh how fun!! they dont grow those here as its too hot so i guess we'll never have such fun events.. but this is too cool!

  4. i love cherries but i'm confused: you pay something to the owner of the cherries' trees and you can carry as much as you want?

  5. Wow...they are beautiful! I love the yellow. Where do you live? Washington? We don't have "u-pick cherries" around here! Strawberries, blueberries and apples...yes!!!

  6. WOW this looks sooo FUN!! I really am a huge fan of any berries and cherries! Thanks so much for sharing and your photos make me feeling so happy! Have a lovely merry happy week and love to yoU!

  7. Hello everyone! Thanks for your comments...it was my first time to pick cherries and I'm glad to have shared this fun day with you :)
