Goodbye summer.

Cherry Crisp

Goodbye ice cream trucks and picnics and ripe tomatoes.

Cherry Crisp2

Goodbye road trips and outdoor concerts. Goodbye action blockbusters in air conditioned theaters. Goodbye lemonade.

Topping Ingredients

Goodbye s’mores and dandelions and thunderstorms and fireworks. Goodbye reruns and strappy sandals. Goodbye sunburns. Goodbye baseball and crickets chirping.

Cherry Filling

Goodbye fresh cherries.
