Cherry Couscous

Have you noticed the cherries in the stores these days?

Wow! We can’t get enough of them.

Today I bring you a bowl of cherries…

as in this delicious bowl of Cherry Couscous!

The cherries this year are so luscious! We’ve been buying them by the bagfuls and they are gone within a day.

I was delighted to find this recipe that goes GREAT with grilled pork chops.

The hardest part to this recipe is chopping the cherries…and how hard is that?

Yum! That’s all she wrote.
