Monday

Everything is just peachy!

While on vacation in SC a few weeks ago we bought some fresh peaches. They were sooo good! We don’t often get good peaches here in Florida, I don’t know if they grow in FL.

Peaches don’t last very long, so I had to get creative to use them up. First I used the fresh peaches to make peach short cake. I bought a sugar-free angel food cake at the grocery store, along with sugar-free Cool Whip. This was delicious! We bought a few white peaches so I mixed them with the regular peaches. Yum!

Next I made some things I could freeze. These peach muffins are very good with the peach jam we also bought at the fruit stand in SC. I like peach preserves and had never seen peach jam or jelly, so I bought some!


I made a small peach cobbler just for the two of us. I added a little Splenda Brown Sugar and butter. The crust was made with Crescent Rolls, cut into strips and woven into a lattice. It was really good!


I like it hot, without ice cream so I can get the full taste of the peaches!

A favorite was this peach bread below, I ended up making two loaves of this. I served some at my Creative Memories workshop and it was a hit.


This is our idea of a relaxing cocktail!
So cold and refreshing!
We also bought this delicious peach cider in SC!
I also served this at my CM workshop, they loved it!

(Sorry the pictures didn't turn out so well at night.)

If you would like any of these recipes I will be happy to share them with you.

Now are you hungry for fresh peaches?

Have a peachy day!!


God Bless.

I love peaches and I've never had any ruin on me. I love eating them as is. When we had the farm, we had both white and yellow peaches. I canned mine with a syrup made with sweetner instead of sugar. I also love peach preserves. We never had this growing up.
Maybe you could share your muffin and cobbler recipes.

Wow! Wow! Maybe we will make peach ice cream for our pool party. If you come there will be plenty of ice cream but I will be eating mine. I am going to follow the advice to be good before the party and then go ahead and eat and then go back to being good.
