We have been blessed with the opportunity to visit some amazing places and to reconnect with some long lost friends and family this summer. One of our trips was to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We had a great trip but rather than post the hundreds of pictures that I came home with, I thought I would share a short video of highlights from our week.
It's been a great summer and it's hard to believe that the kids will be heading back to school soon. We are doing all we can to soak up our last few days of summer vacation - AT HOME. Tonight I made a batch of Sweet Glazed Peaches for dessert. They were really good - they tasted like the epitome of summer.
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 firm, ripe peaches
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup apple jelly
1 Tablespoon butter
1/4 cup pistachios, toasted and chopped
Combine jelly and butter and microwave 30 seconds.
Transfer peaches to a skillet, cut side up and pour any remaining sugar mixture over fruit. Pour water around peaches.
Broil peaches 6 inches from broiler rack 11-13 minutes or until just starting to brown.
