Just Peachy

Nothing says summer to me like peaches.

Now I know Georgia thinks they wrote the book on peaches. But here in central Texas, Fredericksburg peaches reign as the absolute sweetest, juiciest, most delectable ones I have ever put in my mouth.

I've been enjoying them on my cereal all week, and last night I finally got a couple of cobblers made, one for us and a traditional birthday cobbler for a friend.

That's good eating, even if I didn't have any Blue Bell to scoop on top.

What's your favorite summer taste?

I have to say the absolute most mouth-watering peaches I have ever sunk my teeth into were from a little town called Gaffney, SC. My favorite summer taste has been the homemade applesauce that we made yesterday. Apples picked right off the tree. Nothing says freshness like home-grown!

I love peaches but I can't ever find any decent ones where I live. So strawberry shortcake is my favorite.

Here is's corn on the cob...yumm :)

I'm sure the Fredericksburg peaches are wonderful, but this Georgia girl has got to stick up for her state's peaches. LOL! South Carolina's are also good.

Other summer tastes that I love are watermelon, blueberries, and tomatoes.

My husband is a diabetic and we're both trying to keep our weight down, so I've been making some delicious sugar-free desserts with these fruits.

Oh, yes... Fredericksburg peaches are fairly unbeatable. I wish we had a local farmer's market where I could get some.

I can't seem to be consistent on a favorite... It changes from year to year.

This year, I'm totally stuck on sweet vine-ripe tomatoes. Combine with some fresh cucumbers, herbs, feta cheese & EVOO... greek salad, baby.

I think that ripe peaches must be the most aromatic fruit, too. Yum.

Since I live in the midst of farm country, we LOVE fresh picked watermelon, blueberries, corn on the cob and peaches. Actually if I must confess, we are addicted to them. :)

Yummy! I'm sure I must have had some Fredricksburg peaches at some time in my life!

I love watermelon and also Big Red home made ice cream.
