Hi. Ummm. Is this thing on? Long time no post, eh? Well, it is certainly not because I am not cooking (double negative, gross), but sometimes you have to live life. I have been cooking my way through a few cookbooks this year, which I would love to tell you more about. The subject at hand is peaches. When I was little, I think I ate too many ripe and juicy Georgia peaches in one sitting [and got really itchy all over]. Later, I realized that it was hard to find those perfect peaches, hence the gorging. When we had a CSA in NJ, it was the first time in a while that I bothered with the peaches. It’s just so hard to find that perfect peach and the peaches sold in the grocery store were a far cry from what I envisioned. Here in AZ, it seems to be a bit easier for them to get it straight with produce in general, so I found myself drawn to the peach display at the store. With my grocery shopping, generally I try to stick to the list, but with fresh fruit, I just buy what is in season and looks good.
I thought I would ease myself in here with a easy one. It’s not even a recipe. And peaches are probably no longer in season where you are. However, it was a pretty awesome flash of brilliance on my part, so I wanted it recorded here.
