I have declared the summer of 2015 as the summer of travel for our family. It took me a while to figure out why I just kept feeling like I was playing a never ending game of catch-up this summer and then it dawned on me --- some or all of us have been traveling for 6 weeks out of an 8 week summer!
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.
I love sharing the pictures from our vacation but I treasure the memories that were made even more. Having the opportunity to spend the week together as a family was absolutely priceless.
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.
Sweet Glazed Peaches
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
Add peaches and toss to coat all sides.
Combine jelly and butter and microwave 30 seconds.
Remove peaches from oven, brush with half of jelly mixture. Return peaches to oven and continue to broil until spotty brown. (7-9 minutes)
Remove peaches from oven, brush with remaining jelly and transfer peaches to serving platter.
Bring accumulated juices to in skillet to a simmer and cook until syrupy. (about 1 minute)
Pour syrup over peaches.
Sprinkle with pistachios and serve.
Fresh, ripe, juicy Georgia peaches in the height of summer are hard to beat. They're sweet and delicious that they make the perfect dessert after any summer meal.
