The farmer from next door just brought me a kilo of fresh picked cherries.

If I freeze half, then that half won't be fresh.

If I wash them then all I will eat them all.
Thank you for this.
It helps to counteract the previous posts.

If you angle the shower head properly you don't need one. Sloping ceiling over our bath so always shower without a curtain. Going to have one after dinner and cool down for a while!
Naaa, that does not work at all. A shower gotta be wet and splashy

Can cherries be frozen with the stones?
I bought a bit too many but if I have to take the stones out I can't be bothered, I'll just indulge.

Eat half, cook half. They will go off in this heat very quickly.

The half I was going to freeze is already gone. I'm just starting the half I intended to eat.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Years ago i thought i discovered a culinary solution for wraps: i spread leftover mashed potatoes on the wrap to act a glue to hold veg and whatnot in place. Made some for the visiting relatives. They played with it a bit, said it was crap and walked off to a local Chinese takeaway...

Mashed potatoes on bread... Are you by any chance from the Nordic region?

And if you are, how is it that your family isn't?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Was swimming in the Rhine this evening after foolishly drinking a beer on my over warm balcony.
Problem was too many little flying insects hovering in clouds over the river

Given that fruit tends to go a bit mushy after being frozen, removing the stones will likely be a messy, slippery job (I know it's already messy with fresh cherries). I would remove the stones before freezing.

Now I await your FWP tomorrow complaining about blue fingers...

That's why I always borrow my boss's computer for such searches.

I've found that doping so speeds up my promotion.

No anti-doping policy where you work?
