Fresh Peaches


A friend of ours brought us peaches from her tree yesterday!
 I peeled and sliced 16 cups and put them in the freezer.
I'm thinking about taking a peach crisp to the auction this week
to share with my coworkers.  Yum!  I wonder if that may
cause a riot with the bidders.  Do you think they'd be
upset I didn't bring enough to feed all 200+ of them? ha.

    2. To keep him happy
      Wouldn't want him to turn into a Flappy

    3. Oh, that would be bad.
      and make me very sad.
      Would have to send him to you
      with the barbies from his zoo.

    1. That's bowl's been up on my top kitchen shelf and I took it down and ran it through the dishwasher to get the dust off. Then when it came out all clean, I thought I'd leave it down and use it. It's so pretty...just makes working in the kitchen a little happier. :)

      Tell your sister that's just not fair! ha.

  5. You better hide it if you take some dessert to the auction. Those bidders will have money to spend and they may go crazy with your delicious baking.
    Aren't fresh peaches the best?

      yes, they are the best! I nibbled while I sliced and they smelled so good. Really juicy, too! I used to have a peach tree but it died years ago. I miss it!

  10. I am thinking about peaches too. I must find some because they are my very favorite fruit... almost. Well, right up there with watermelon. :)
    I have plans to make jam, maybe raspberry peach jam... or maybe blackberry jam, because that is what I will be finding in my backyard in a week or so.

    1. Mmm...I agree! The only thing better would be if someone made the peach crisp for me and served me a dish of it with icecream on the side. ha....oh, and then did the dishes afterward. lol...

  15. You don't know how good those yummy peaches look here in the midst of a bitterly cold & miserable Aussie winter! I have an identical mixing bowl Betsy, it came from my Mum's & every time I use it she's right back with me.

  16. I have been trying in vain to comment here for a couple of weeks, for some reason blogger is being selfish! LOVE the wedding pictures and the other bits and pieces that I see now and then. Today, I am loving peaches. I am going tomorrow to get a box of them and will probably just sit and eat a few before I remember that I have other things to do! So I'm still around even if you don't hear from me. have a good week!

  24. I love peaches myself Betsy so this is a beautiful gift in my eyes, really hope that whatever you do with them you guys enjoy them! I'd be upset if I was in the 200+ who missed out but you can only do enough to feed a certain amount so I'd say go for it!

  27. Yummy!!! I'm hoping to can some peaches in a couple weeks. Last year I didn't get any because of the late frost in the spring the crop was small, and the price was HIGH. We sure have missed having them! Peach crisp sounds divine.
