Housesitting, Good Friends, and Sour Cherry Pie

Eric and I have the honor this week and weekend of watching the house of some dear friends. They don’t live too far from us–just far enough to feel like we’re having a get away, not far enough that we can’t go check on our place, too. We love to retreat here to work, play, and enjoy one another’s company.

Last night, we invited an old friend and a new friend over for a simple dinner at our get away. The best part? It gave me an opportunity to use our hand-plucked Door County tart cherries!

I used a very simple recipe from this summer’s favorite cookbook to make our Sour Cherry Pie. I couldn’t for the life of me find a rolling pin in someone else’s kitchen, so it was rustic looking, but still tasted great. The ingredients were simple and the prep was much easier than I expected.

I’m looking forward to leftovers tonight!
