1. Fruit and almonds: one small fruit and 12 whole almonds.
I'm obsessed! Totally head over heals and crazy in love...with peaches. My sweet husband purchased a few peaches for me as a random surprise last weekend from the farmer's market by his work. One bite, that is all it took. All I want is peaches. I would stop eating all other foods and just eat peaches if I could. They are sweet and juicy and heavenly - you definitely need to try one and don't wait because they go out of season in what seams like an instant. Today, I am going to talk about everything peachy!
Now a fresh, ripe peach wins, top choice for any day and every occasion. But, I also like to use peaches to accessorize. On a smoking hot summer day like today, PEACH SORBET sounds heavenly.
Or how about PEACH ICED TEA with lunch?
If you are looking for the perfect afternoon snack, try whole grain tortilla chips with PEACH SALSA.
Don't let this season pass you by. Allow yourself to fall in love this summer with peaches. Just peachy.
I want to know how you like to accessorize your food with peaches. Leave us your ideas!
