Amazing how expensive fresh fruits have gotten.
It’s true. But oh they are delicious.
Carol, this is a very carol-like post. Authentic. Human. Sometimes we think we have to dress everything up. (My husband does a lot of the cooking now and he has to throw pecans in everything! ) Basic and simple are better for my health and that way you are focussing on the flavor of the item, you are not distracted by other flavors and God knows, we live in a distracting world. Bravo
I have been having a peach a day for weeks now. So delish!
Can’t think of anything better! Lovely post.
We have been enjoying them for the last 6 weeks. Just so good.
Simple. Perfect. I can almost taste it up here in Canada!
Like life. We tend to get caught up in the ‘trends’ and forget what brought us joy in simpler times!
You know, I just never liked all the ‘new’. Give me a nice plain meal perfectly prepared and flavorful in a simple way and I am on Cloud 9.
The perfect peach is everything. When we first moved here to AZ, we bought some peaches at the grocery store, and they were tasteless. It was SO disappointing. The Palisade peaches from Colorado are the type you have there on your plate. Mouthwatering, delicious and full of flavor.
They really are flavorful. They are grown on a farm around the central coast of California, and we buy them at a farmer’s market here.
When I was in high school, we lived in northern Alabama where there were many orchards of giant freestone peaches. Mom would buy a couple of bushels from the highways stands. I remember “helping” her peel and slice peaches to be cooked, frozen, but mostly… eaten! I rolled away from the table more than once. So good!
I have to make a shortcake before the summmer is gone!
Oh my goodness, now I want a peach. I’ve been wrapping up my days with watermelon lately and YUM – I don’t know what I’ll do when the season is over. Little beats fresh juicy fruit, especially during the hotter months.
That peach does look delicious! I love a bowl of fresh strawberries & raspberries- no sugar, no cream – however I am not one for desserts but I do eat strawberries & raspberries on top of bran flakes with a dollop of natural yogurt or skimmed milk every morning! ?
fruit and yogurt: total bliss
Watermelon is my little summer joy. Even the color is fun!
Oh i do love me some watermelon!
Lovely post. The only thing that can beat a fresh peach is the first vine ripened tomato. Ahhh… summer!
I can not disagree!
