A big bowl of cherries..and no inspiration!

I think my brain is completely gone. My laptop has been progressively acting up over the last few months. So today I went to Best Buy to purchase a new computer. I used their service to transfer all of my existing files from my old pile of junk to my new(probably to be outdated in 2 day) computer. I get a call from the “Geek Squad”. “Ah, Leslie, we are unable to retrieve any of your files from your hard drive.”–Sweating begins–. “Miss your hard drive is completely shot and it is freezing up every time we try to transfer anything over. ” –More sweating–. I reluctantly sent my husband to pick up the new computer..I did this to protect myself from going into the store and experiencing public humiliation by crying in public.
I did not realize the scope of them not being able to transfer anything onto my new computer. This means…all contacts lost..i-tunes gone..photos gone–whipping a tear–..all documents gone.all favorites on line..everything is gone gone gone! So to get to the moral of the story, I needed to release some stress. I had a big bowl of cherries in the fridge. I took my cherry pitter out and started pitting away. Not thinking(ya know, because remember my brain is gone), I don’t have any good cherry recipes. I don’t want to make a boring old cherry pie. So I am turning to my fellow foodies for advice. What should I make with all of these beautiful cherries?

    When I have a lot of cherries to use up I make a cherry and almond tart http://traineedomesticgoddess.blogspot.com/2006/05/this-is-one-of-first-cakes-i-ever-made.html

    What about cherries jubilee? Mmmmmm! If those cherries were in my house they would have a serious chance of being eaten before being used 🙂

    Oh my dear my hear goes out to you! Life is often just chair of bowlies and NOT a bowl of cherries.

    Doesn’t pie or cherry ice cream cure all woes?

    I don’t have a great cherry recipe for you because they don’t last a minute around here. However, losing everything on your computer, the same thing happened to me last year and yes, I cried. The worst part of it was losing all of my bookmarked recipes. Some of which I’ve never found again, *le sigh* Now I back up everything onto a separate hard drive every couple of months. I totally feel for you.

    Oh girl you must try white chocolate & cherry cookies or scones.
    Or how about a fresh Black Forest Cake with fresh cherries.
