This was beautiful

I printed it out and made copies for friends. Thank you so much for sharing! As for the cherries , well… you are woman!!!!! I still have halkf a bucket of bings to do here and my pie cherry tree is full!!!! yesterday the boys picked like made and I got 4 huge dehydrater trays full, made a big cherry crisp and made cherry syrup for pancakes with the juice I got from squeezing out the cherries for dehydrating.

As you know, I live in Orlando, FL. We moved here 2 years ago. I have to admit life is quite expensive here. Sometimes I even need to apply for on-line Florida payday loans here and they help a lot. Just need to pay them back on time. And here goes my recipe:

I just using equal parts cherry juice to water and then double the sugar of the total water and juice amount (ex: 2 cups juice + 2 cups water = 4 cups sugar). Just boil it all up until it gets to the syrup stage and then use (store in the refrigerator) or can it up for use later. We had just used the last of the canned syrup a couple of months ago and were just craving cherry syrup again! Reminds me, I need to go and get that stuff canned up! LOL!

Last night we had a friend over and BBQed steaks marinated in teriyaki sauce on the grill. Calm down folks! I did not pay full price for the steaks. One of the smaller chain stores marks down all their meat on Monday that did not sell over the weekend. I bout a big family pack of steaks (6 steaks total) for $3.00! We made a big pot of rice to go with it and had brocolli, beans and salad from our garden along with the cherry crisp (cherries from our trees) to go with it.

Delicious and cheap meal! I only used 4 of the steaks and cut them all in half, so it looked like there was more meat! Gotta trick my husband into thinking he is getting a lot more with 2 smaller pieces! LOL! God is sooooo Good!
