A Week of Simple Pleasures :: Day 4

Finding organic goods at Kroger on Manager's Special is definitely a simple pleasure for me. I am always excited to make a bee-line to the organic section to see if anything is reduced for a quick sale...with our family of six, we go through organic milk and eggs quickly so to find a deal is pure delight!!

And blessed cherries!! We have gone through 3 lbs. of them this past week because I was able to get them through my Co-op for only $1.25/lb!! They are so sweet and delicious and beautiful...their season is so short-lived that I eat as many as I possibly can.

Thank you Lord for your grace in providing us wholesome foods...and in a way that I can afford. I love that you delight to grace us in the little things...even as I purchase our food. And above all these things, You are the One who truly satisfies my hunger and fills my soul.

Ooooh, the cherries!! Wow, that is a great deal! The cheapest I have found them here is for $2.99 a pound. And they are sooo delicious! I mostly eat them raw, but a few times, have pitted them and cooked them with butter, brown sugar, and balsamic vinegar. It makes the most incredible sauce and cherries to eat over vanilla ice cream. Yum!

Hey, now this is exciting! You know me. . .LOVE to find good deals on good food. Speaking of good food, as I write this, I'm munching on organic tortilla chips with homemade guacamole for lunch, and Hank is enjoying it with me. My simple pleasure for the day---
