What Would You Do?
DH just returned from a week in the Pacific Northwest, where he enjoyed delicious cherry pie. So being that it's Father's Day (and he is such an extraordinary father), I thought I'd bake him one here in the Northeast.
But, as I went through some recipes this morning, I realized that I bought the wrong kind of cherries. I didn't know that one was supposed to use sour (not sweet) cherries in pies.
As many of my readers know, I often make mistakes *during* baking, and then meeting (or not) the challenge to correct them. This is a first, though, knowing in advance that something is wrong.
I'm hoping an answer will emerge during yoga this morning: Just plunge ahead and bake a pie that may not be so good, or abandon the project entirely.
