Summer and peaches. They go so well together! Hallie and Mike used to go up to Brigham City's Peach Days when we lived in Utah, and Mike's grandma always made peach, plum, and apricot fruit leather each summer when his family would visit her in St. George. Since moving to Michigan, we have enjoyed our trips up to Westview Orchards to pick our own fruit and have Landon play around at the different activities. Last Saturday we took our neighbor Miles up to the orchard to pick peaches after stopping at Five Guys Burgers and Fries along Hall Road on the way (loved the amazing cooked-to-order burgers, hate the insanely busy road).

Once we got home with our peck of perfect peaches (some 12-13 pounds worth) and gave some away, we had an abundance of awesome ambrosia to cook up and serve up in a variety of ways, including:
  • sliced up and served with vanilla ice cream (and dulce de leche--qué sabroso!)
  • made into two kinds of cobbler
  • made into empanadas (handy little peach pies)
  • plain and juicy, just as nature intended
Pure heaven!
